I know, this is a beer blog, not a fitness blog! We beer drinkers have a reputation for being a bit on the porky side, and not necessarily being the fittest of people. But I think that that is a sweeping generalisation, like saying only men drink craft beer (totally untrue as there are tons of women who love craft beer and home brewing) or that women are bad at parking…
Anyway. I was wondering what the community was like out there for “beer runners” like me. A couple of days ago I just ran my first half marathon- and in a pretty good time of 1:50, too, which I’m proud of. I can also say that I didn’t change my diet or drinking habits in the slightest- I’m not a heavy drinker but will have a beer at least 3 or 4 nights a week. I found that a nice pint of pale ale served as a very good rehydration supplement after a run! Not to mention the immense burger and a beer that I had after finishing the half marathon.
Beer runners of the world- is there a community out there? Are there beer running clubs that meet up and go for runs and then a beer together? If not, I’m starting one!
