Joggling for College Credit?
Hey all you running jugglers out there, you thought this joggling thing would never amount to much? Well, check out this college joggling course that Dedwarmo found. I didn’t think it was serious until I read through the web pages. Indeed, it is (or at least was) a real course at the College of Micronesia.
Benefits of Joggling
According to the syllabus, here are some of the benefits of joggling.
1. Joggling strengthens the mind’s ability to handle the multi-dimensionality of life.

4. Joggling tones more muscles than running.
