A Boise man set a Guinness World Record Wednesday, Dec. 13, at Boise State University's Albertsons Stadium, all in the name of STEM education.

David Rush ran from end zone to end zone — a total of 100 yards — while juggling blindfolded.

He set the record for the farthest distance traveled while juggling three objects in an effort to draw attention to STEM education.

“I’m probably one of the only people in the world who can do this,” Rush said. “There’s probably a few others, but nobody has ever tried to break this record. So I’m looking forward to those three or four people in the world that can actually do this to try to break this record so we can get a little competition going.”

This was Rush’s 33rd Guinness World Record and today is is 33rd birthday.

To prepare for his attempt, Rush says he practiced pretty frequently, running a total of 2,000 miles while juggling.
