Friday Funny 122: Beer Mile

>> Friday, October 15, 2010

Tomorrow night, I've been invited to participate in my first "Beer Mile." Here's a great little video that shows what it's all about that was part of the invite:

Since I've only had about 4 beers in the last 2-3 years, chugging 4 within a few minutes of each other COULD get a little interesting. Not to mention the hard running with the carbonated booze in my belly. Should be a good time. (I've been told to expect a fair amount of projectile vomiting...) I hope to be able to draw on my experience in my Doughnut Run victory.

A lot of the Metro area's best triathletes (and me) have been invited to St. Paul to take part. This should be a grand time! Pharmie's coming to take photos, and rumor has it that Curt will be there taking video. (He's the one who made the sweet Gear West Duathlon video and the fun Mosquito Man Duathlon video. In fact, I think a lot of people in those videos will be at the Beer Mile.)

Should be an interesting Saturday night. I'll be back with photos on Monday. Happy Weekend!!

Wish I were invited (but I'm non-tri riffraff). Did a beer mile 20 years ago; one guy chugged a beer every 400 meters and still ran sub-5!

I wish I was invited, but I don't drink, so I would just be running a "mile." Bor-ing. I hope there are some great action shots.

Matt (or myself) should have been invited. I bet matt could win. :)
