I love one mile races - and I lover beer. My fellow mile/beer lovers lined up for the always awesome Taconic Road Runner's Beer Mile (which tonight also included what appeared to be wine coolers and/or hard ciders)!
Last year I couldn't run it because the date conflicted with my summer session class. But back in 2016 I managed to run a solid 8:35 - something not to be repeated this time around. Four beers, high humidity, and slightly older runner... I eked out a 9:30 finish :O
Addendum: According to Strava, my moving time was exactly 6:59 - which meant that 2:30+ was "drinking" time. Well, of that drinking time, practically an entire minute was devoted to beer #4 - haha!
Another highlight of this event is that it's held in conjunction with our Club's monthly meeting. So after the running/drinking we climbed up the hill to the Gazebo for the results/meeting/food - and, it should go w/out saying, a bit more drinking :D
Here are the official results from the Taconic RR.

An impressive array of fluids nicely lined up at the start!
A bucolic venue for the meeting :D
