Joggling: Juggling and Running


What is Joggling?

Joggling combines running and juggling. Joggling requires the competitor to juggle at least 3 balls while running. The rules require that a juggling pattern must be maintained whilst running, and if an object is dropped, the joggler must return to the point where the object fell and continue from there.

The Joggler

Perry Romanowski, The Joggler, started a run streak on November 18, 2008. He runs every day. For more information on run streaking, check out our blog post.

Perry has made an intriguing twist to his runs by incorporating juggling. This phenomena is called joggling.

Many of us have a hard enough time getting our regular training runs in. Could you imagine not only getting all those runs in, but juggling the entire time?

Perry began joggling in 2006. Since 2003, he has not gone for a run that he didn't “joggle.” Perry feels joggling adds to his runs, making them more enjoyable. If you watch his video below, you'll see he is very good at juggling, and rarely ever drops his bean bags.

Can you imagine hitting the wall in the marathon and juggling through it? Well, Perry can manage a 3:21 marathon, juggling the entire time. He also holds the 50 mile joggling world record.
