A Drinking Club With a Running Problem

My dad emailed me the link to a video on CNN.com today detailing a running club from Tuscon, Arizona who have planned a “30 Pack Marathon” in which every runner must “run a lap, drink a beer; run a lap, drink a beer…”

Despite what you may think, the group is actually comprised of serious athletes who simply are looking for a fun, different way to try in the dead of the Arizona summer. Each runner is timed for overall performance, as well as per lap and per beer.

Although there is plenty of water on site to keep hydrated, in 85+ degree heat, there was also a fair share of throwing up.

For more on the so-called drinking club with a running problem, check out the cnn.com video. Cheers.
