Running a marathon with a difference

Hats off to this man who became the first and fastest person to run a marathon backwards while juggling three balls.

He covered a distance of 26.2 miles securing a finish time of 5hrs 51min 25sec

To add to the accomplishment he only dropped the ball twice during the last 2.5 miles of race, "Darn Street Holes Caught me Foot," he said.

He had some help of course from his team to direct him, try and keep the sun out of his eyes and in general great people who, "had my back".
