One “Joggler” Is Prepared For Boston Marathon

Marathons attract all types. The Boston Marathon is no exception. According to a report filed on the ABC News Web site, college senior Thomas Gounley will toe the line at the start of the Boston Marathon prepared to tackle the famous 26.2-mile race while juggling.

“The hardest part is going to be the first couple miles: trying to run well, while still being in a moving crowd,” Gounley, who attends the University of New Hampshire, said.

So the magic question for Gounley isn’t whether or not he will finish the race, but rather, what happens if he drops the beanbags he will run with?

According to official “joggling” rules, Gounley has to return to the spot he dropped them at, and continue on from there.

Gounley is sponsored by a local butchery called Meat House. He will joggle with a temporary tattoo bearing the name of the sponsor.

“Some people break out balls-related puns,” Gounley joked. “Just like, ‘Oh, that’s so baller,’ and ‘ballin’.”
