Will Run 16 Miles For Malt Liquor

There is nothing better than starting your Saturday 16 mile run with some dynamic stretching...

...and cute boys...

...who are serving warm malt liquor...

...because we all know what water does to you...
Energy bars make you gassy, Gatorade cures baldness, Malt Liquor eases muscle pain and Water causes hallucinations.

 You be the judge...did we make the right choice at 14 miles into our run?
A few minutes of burning bubbles in my tummy were cured by a couple of sugary orange slices and we ran to the finish line with tons of energy.

So, I know... I know...my evening before long workout drinks have now actually infiltrated the workouts themselves. But who am I to argue the benefits of such golden goodness?

My longest run since 2006!! WOOT!

Great run!!

Um...about the malt liquor. Welllll, once upon a time maybe. After my last race I really, really wanted to head for the beer tent, but i could barely walk. ;) That probably saved me.

Hope you are having a great weekend, Julie!

That is far... If malt liquor makes it a little easier, I'll follow your rule without second thoughts. If cute boys offer it, I'll follow your rule without first thoughts too...

Ha! There's a spot around mile 20 of the Philadelphia marathon where a local restaurant serves beer to any runner who's interested. I can't stomach it but you definitely see a lot of people perking up at that point!
