New Juggling Endurance Record is Set

My internet access has been a bit limited these days but not so limited that this story was missed. Here is a report out of Dallas that says a new juggling record has been set. David Slick juggled three tennis balls for 12 hours, 12 minutes and 12 seconds.

While this is an impressive record, I’m pretty sure I could do that. Certainly, Ashrita Furman could. Perhaps this is a thing worth trying sometime next year. Right now, I’ve gotta stay focused on becoming a joggler who qualifies for Boston.

  1. I wonder if that was without any drops. Guess if it was, it would have said so.

    Cannot be too tough for someone that can joggle an ultra like yourself.

  3. Perry – The kicker here is I believe this is a NO DROP record. This is more about focus and concentration that the juggling.

  4. I have twice juggled over 12 hours without stopping or deviating from a cascade. My first attempt was only 2 hours because even though I was mentally fine and plenty skilled to continue, my arms were incredibly sore.Considering how sore my wrists, forearms, and shoulders get during the run, it is 90% physical endurance, 6% skill (I’ve acquired from about 150 hours of 3 ball endurance), and 4% mental.

    To any juggler/joggler interested in juggling that length of time: Consider the huge investment of time it will take to build up your endurance.
