Portland, Oregon - 15,000 runners and walkers will take part in Sunday's Portland Marathon. But only one will run and juggle bean bags at the same time. Tony Palomino has joggled since he was a kid and has run the marathon two times. He decided to joggle it this year to make it more fun. He's been in joggling training since July and has run some 5Ks and the Wine Country Half Marathon to warm up for Sunday.
Tony says "I train hard to get there, but its probably more important to me that I'm having fun. I want everyone to have fun as well. Because let's face it; running is not that fun. So if I can bring a smile to people's faces, that's awesome."
He says he has never had a drop while running and hopes to continue that record on Sunday.
When Tony's not balancing running and bean bags, he heads the Computer User Services Department at Reed College.
