<p>Our local running club is hosting one of these tonight.</p>

<p>Who here has done one?  I know <strong>Solar</strong> and she's given me a few stories.  What about the rest of you?  I haven't decided yet if I'll go for sure, but I'd like to.</p>

<p>I once ran in something called the Big Man run.  It was for Clydesdales only.  It was ~6 mile race through the streets of Somerville with 3 stops at bars.  At each stop, each participant was required to chug a pint and eat a hot dog.</p>

<p>Just popped in to the PRT to check out rlmert's Aussie adventure and spotted this thread.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Victoria is home to the world record holder, Jim Finlayson, with a time of 5:09.  Experimenting during training revealed that Granville Island Winter Ale was the brew to chug.  Yes, he did train for it.  He coaches a lot of locals, including lucky me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Clare, you need to train! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Do it!  And have fun {burf}.</p>

<p>Well, I didn't end up going.  I couldn't find a sitter for the girls and I didn't want to take them and keep them out late while I ran around and drank beer.  Next time, I hope.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The guy who won did it in 7:34.  I can't even run a mile in that time, let alone drink 4 beer.  Yikes.</p>

<p>Our hashers just held one about a week ago. It might have been better attended had it been at the location they advertised it to be, as posting a last-minute change online typically is not read by people en route.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>All had fun. Some did puke, however. I am most afriad of pissing myself, more than hurling, frankly.</p>

<p>Beer Miles are FUN!  And silly.  And definitely puke-producing.  And some take it VERY seriously.  But FUN. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The two that I've done were all of the above, and I highly recommend doing it.  Gather some friends and have a blast.  I have great pictures from the Blizzard Beer Mile we did here in NJ during the 120ft. of snow we had this winter.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello2.gif" style="width:25px;height:27px;" title=""></p>

<p><em>I am quickly gifted some other runner’s used bib. The name printed on it is “Sarah”. This will fool law enforcement if there’s any trouble.</em></p>
