    If it wasn't for the fact that he was running for an excellent cause, I would say this is a dumb record. (I am a combat vet too)

      Barry Goldmeier, 47, of Rockville accomplished a feat never before attempted, an indoor marathon while juggling four balls, in 6:17:22. I am not sure whom he is sharing this record with but, I was there to witness it and I personally think that it would be awesome to have him and his record join me here at Record Setters.

    I was there to observe this event. What most people don't realize is running on an indoor track, 211 laps, is much more difficult then running in a normal marathon outdoor event. It is the 100% flat surface and the almost constant left turn that gets to you. Plus, the boredom of seeing the same exact 'landscape' every 40 to 60 seconds for hours on end. Christopher told me he had a lot of fun, but his left side took quite a beating.
