Video — The Beer Mile

img src=”” alt=”running-advice-bug” title=”running-advice-bug” width=”150″ height=”126″ class=”alignleft size-full wp-image-2418″ />Episode 18 is here and this week, we take a break from the more serious topics we consider and get somewhat . . . silly. Runners love beer. How about an event that brings runners and beer together? And yes, we mean drinking WHILE running.

This week Coach Dean tells us about the little known, but highly competitive, track event called the Beer Mile. It sounds like something that might make me sick, but I’d be willing to give it a try.

Keep in mind that you should drink responsibly, don’t drink in public places where alcohol is prohibited, don’t run on the road after drinking, and never drink and drive.

This video is part of our Desert Series, in which Coaches Joe English and Dean Hebert get their lips smackin’ about all things marathon running. There are over 30 episodes in the series and they come out every week on
