Beer Mile

Tonight I ran a beer mile for the second time. For those of you not familiar with the idea of a beer mile it involves running four laps of a 400m track and consuming a beer before each lap with a penalty lap added if you get sick. You can view the full rules here

Last year I ran the mile in 14:03. Once again this year we chose the same track as our venue…


This year the beer of choice was Rickard’s Red after Coors Light was not a popular choice last week…

I managed to improve on my time this year with a 13:19 finish. I am not sure what I did differently this year but whatever it was it seemed to work. It is certainly not a great time compared to times others have accomplished but I am not sure what I could have done to improve my time more than I did. 

This was the scene after we all finished the mile (I should point out that all cans were picked up after I took this picture and no waste as left on the track).
