AM run before quafftoberfest beer mile - 13.5 miles w/ 3x Threshold efforts - 1.5mi., 1mi., 1mi. @ something faster than MP. 

Beer Mile - 2014 Champ right here!  At Quafftoberfest, a beer and music festival in Bean Blossom, IN at Bill Monroe Music Center.  My first attempt at this beer mile, thing, I DNFed.  IT is a horrible sick feeling to sprint and then chug beer!  I did much better this time:  The challenge today included the following drinks/running: 

1. chug one QuaffON! Six Blonde beer,    2. run 0.25miles,   3. chug a HareTrigger IPA beer,   4. run 0.25miles,  

5. chug a Busted Knuckle beer,   6. run 0.25 miles,   7. chug a PBR (  :(   ) beer,   8. run the final 0.25miles. 

This went great until the PBR - I barely kept that one down.  I did manage to barely break 7 minutes and win.  You just have a really gross, sick feeling when doing this until your heart comes down.   :)
