AM: Beer Mile! this morning.  Four of the QuaffON! guys and I decided to give this silliness a try.  The challenge is this:  Chug a beer, run 0.25mi., Chug another beer, run 0.25mi., chug/run, chug/run.  This was not as fun as it sounds.  First of all, the weather was not ideal - 55 degrees, but pouring rain.  So, I decided to go for broke and ran shirtless as well...

After beer number one in about 30 seconds, I ran my quarter and was back at the start line for beer 2.  At this point I knew I would be a DNF.  Beer 1 was really hurting the stomach, already.  Beer 2 barely went down in about a minute, and I was a solid 2 minutes behind the leaders.  I dragged my butt another 0.25mi. and was in misery.  I got back to star for Beer 3 and could barely manage to sip any of it.  Fortunately, 2 of the other guys were in the same shape, and we agreed to call it quits.

Props to Dan and Tim for finishing.  Final time for them was 8 something.  World record for this is like 5 minutes...

ANyway, after that craziness, further craziness ensued - the rain here in Indiana had not quit since the night before, and alot of more remote roads and ditches were flooded.  The group went on a sobering 8-9 mile jog through the park in Brown County.  We mostly stuck to the very soggy trails, but ran in to a portion of the road part we were running where the water was rushing over it in a river like flow.  Fortunateley, the other guys are very familiar with the park, and waded a cross.  

We kept a pretty  good pace it felt like and this became a good adventurous hour or so of running.

Calling it 10 miles for the day, and about 80 minutes
