Guy achieves the impossible by juggling while completing a triathlon

(CBS News) We posted a bit ago about man's dream of a slinky walking a treadmill for a really, really long time finally coming to fruition, but omitted to mention another long-time dream that has also finally come true. For that we here at The Feed apologize. So without further ado, we present to you all a man juggling while completing a full triathlon. Yeah, I know, how could we have forgotten this one? I think we just never thought it was actually possible...

The man in question is one 31-year-old Joe Salter who writes about the specifics of his amazing accomplishment:
