Hubs and I host an annual Canada Day party and we decided to shake things up this year by adding our first ever Beer Mile.
We live on a crescent street about 300m around, so we had everyone run 4 laps, drinking a can of beer (or whatever they could manage!) before each lap. This was definitely an “unofficial” mile with very relaxed rules, but it was a riot watching everyone chugging drinks on our driveway then running like maniacs around the block. We had a few “non-runner” participants and plenty of spectators/photographers, which made it even more fun.
Here I am, all ready to go. Yes – I wore my Seattle race bib and medal the entire time and that’s my Brooks VIP toilet paper… just in case. Oh, and I’m drinking a Vex vodka cooler instead of beer. (I told you we relaxed the rules!)
Some axtion shots:
We had ribbons!
2010 Beer Milers!
This is definitely going to be an annual tradition!
Happy (belated) Canada Day
Happy 4th of July!
