Beer Mile World Record

Runners World reports that Chris Kimbrough, a 44-year old mother of six, has "shattered the women's beer mile world record." She did this by running four laps, and drinking four beers, in 6:28.6, beating the previous record by 13 seconds. In a previous age, I suppose, this might have qualified her as "beer honorable."

I find her achievement quite inspirational. Makes me think I should start exercising more (especially if that involves a beer-exercise combo).

Good thing she beat the record by more than the 3+ seconds she started chugging the first beer before the timer said go! The official time did seem to add a couple seconds tho as if they were watching. College grad I bet and who says binge drinking is ALL bad? Often fatal yes, but every cloud has a silver lining for somebody.

We used to play softball with a cup of beer waiting for you at every base, which meant you had to work for your refreshment. Imagine what it was like if you hit a homer! :lol:

I could come up with a whole lot better excuse to drink a beer or four!

No beer etc for me for awhile. Gotta be Mr. Mom as the wife can't walk for at least a month.

For anyone who wants to see what's left of the car her and the kids were in here is a link:
