Canadian Becomes World's Fastest Joggler

Toronto 'joggler' regains world record title running marathon while juggling
By LAUREN LA ROSE

TORONTO (CP) - The title of "world's fastest joggler" is once again in Canadian hands after a Toronto man regained the crown by completing a marathon in record time - while juggling.

Michal Kapral crossed the finish line in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday in two hours 57 minutes, shattering the three-hour seven-minute mark he set after capturing the title at the same race last year.

A couple of runners and one of Kapral's friends who rode alongside on a bicycle verified the event for "Guinness World Records."

Kapral's record-setting performance last September while running a marathon and juggling three objects simultaneously was short-lived after American Zach Warren shaved 44 seconds off Kapral's time in the Philadelphia Marathon last November.

"After he broke my record, I thought, 'I better get it back,' " Kapral said. "I work as a personal trainer in Toronto and I've been trying to motivate clients by telling them they can do impossible things, things that seem impossible by training, so I kind of wanted to demonstrate that."

Kapral and Warren faced off in a joggling duel in the Boston Marathon in April, in which the West Virginia native emerged the victor with a new record time of two hours 58 minutes 23 seconds.

Kapral, nicknamed "The Joggler," said he trained five to six days a week for an hour on average to prepare for the big race, and set off every Sunday for what he called a "long joggle" of two or three hours.

The 34-year-old said marathon joggling allows him to add "something fun" to the sport he already enjoys.

"It's entertaining, I get to see people laugh, I get to see people cheer me on, even in my training runs, and that never happened to me when I was just running," he said.

Running is a family affair for the Kaprals. His wife, Dianne, competed in the five-kilometre race Sunday, and Kapral included daughter Annika in his first record-breaking feat, running the fastest marathon while pushing a baby in a stroller in 2004.

Kapral said that while he thought he'd put marathon joggling behind him after his first race, he can't say for certain he has retired his shiny red juggling balls for good.

"I said I was done last time. I think I'm going to say I'm done again, but it's really hard to know. If my record gets broken, it's really hard to sit around and not have the record."

Kapral said he is looking to add another dynamic skill to his marathon running repertoire.

"I have my sights set on the backwards marathon ... but I think that's a few years off. I got to get some good practice on that one," he said.

"A lot of people have discouraged me, which kind of makes me wants to do it even more."
