Pictures are worth a thousand words.
The Boulder Beer Mile
Here was my hilarious invitation from our annual host, Billy Edwards:
Who: Everyone who has the cajones (in the figurative sense, ladies) to step up for four laps and 4 cans of 5% by volume. AND those who want to watch the idiots that try. Men and Women are equally invited to contest for gender specific trophies.
What: Seriously, if ...you don't know by now, ask a friend and google tastybeverage1609meters.com
When: New Years's EVE DAY, as always- Registration/Placement of Cans at 2:30, Crack of the cans at 3:00pm
Where: The little circle is currently buried somewhere off Norwood and it's in Boulder. Figure it out, because it ain't the first time this circus has run here.
Why: The most coveted pass down trophies in all of Boulder- The Drunk Bears are up for grabs.
Also, because it's Boulder and there are a lot of serious athletes who think they can chug (but most chunder) and it's cold and the drinking season is nearly over! Plus there is snow and less oxygen and it ain't San Diego where those sallies run in shorts only when it's warm. Wear your best costume with or without your smallest speedo. Show up ready to race, but also come to see one of the best dam shows in all of endurance sports.
Finally, we need a snow blower. Get back to me if you can help. I think shoveling 15inches for 400m could be a bit tough.
I believe the pictures can say it all.
Here is my friend Kim and me from the sidelines:
And........I'll just let you scroll through these to enjoy.... (there is no Beer Mile like the Boulder Beer Mile!)
(Don't worry - Sharon isn't really pregnant! It's her costume. Hilarious. We were all yelling, "Chug it. It's good for the baby!"
