Joggler Michal,
Welcome to Running Maniacs! I saw you whoosh by a few times at Scotiabank in the past few years (twice with your beanbags and once with your stroller)! Way to go, Michal! Slow down so we can take a look at your joggling technique! :lol: :wink:
That's an awesome run report! I hope you get your toque washed soon.

Welcome Joggler!

What, you only use beanbags and not running chainsaws?...and you call yourself a Joggler! :wink: :lol: Just kidding!

As someone who can't run a marathon period or juggle more than one beanbag at a time, I am amazed!

Just keep in mind...you could very well get arrested for "jiddling" if it is what my dirty mind went to... :oops:

Welcome, Joggler! I, too, saw you recently running down Main St. (right in front of my condo) and I almost drove my car into the median as I couldn't take my eyes off you! :oops:

Welcome Joggler. I'm curious, when did you decide to start running and juggling at the same time?

Hee hee - we pick up all kinds of people on here, don't we???!!!

Welcome aboard!

(BTW - have you ever tried juggling really different things while running, like hatchets or chainsaws? You might want to talk to SIM about that...)

Jiddling, juddling, chainsaws, backwards joggling – so much to respond to and so little time!

I have never jiddled before (although I can't be sure, since we haven't fully established the definition of this), nor have a joggled chainsaws or scarves. A graphic designer friend of mine did do a rather funny (or offensive, depending on your perspective) Photoshop redition of me joggling with three kittens.

I noticed that when I google "bloggling" I'm the second link. Maybe my blog will attract some people who are prone to typos?

Hello, welcome to the site. The only thing I can juggle is my schedule, and even at that I have to drop things all the time.
