This year has had it’s ups and down but I completed my “A” race while in Kona!
I had been training for this for a couple months since chugging beer is new to me (despite what you may assume about my college days). This race is a bit of a secret and luckily I overheard some talk of it at a party on Friday night Kona. Sunday at 5!
So Sunday, we packed up our gear and headed over to the race venue.
The race was a bit harder than I expected. I had only trained up to two beers and found that beers three and four were much harder to get down (mental note for the next time I race). You can see in my splits where the wheels started to fall off the bus. The odd numbered splits are beers, the evens are running.
I did an extra lap at the end because I puked while getting my 4th beer down. #respectthebeermile.
Overall I am happy with my race. Since this was my first beer mile I was just happy with a finish! Oh, and there were a couple of pretty seasoned athletes there as well.
One of them even tweeted about my performance!
And for my review of my performance after the race:
Thanks goes out to my amazing sponsor Coeur Sports. No matter how long or short your race is, they have you covered. And of course I couldn’t have done this with out the amazing support of my husband, Stuart. Thanks for offering to hold my hair! I would do the same for you but…
