for me, it's the idea of waiting in line for a beer after racing that keeps me away. If someone were to hand me a cold beer I would enjoy that very much.
You learn not to quit by not quitting.
The line/s were definitely not motivational at all.

All those other people who drink and eat minutes after racing just raced at wuss pace.
I think that more aid stations should hand out beers. being slow and drinking combine 2 of my favorite things.
I might get arrested if I practiced drinking and running too often

I ran a 5k the other day and set a PR. Yeah that's right 3 free beers after starting off with just 1 ticket. A nice bonus was being able to walk home after, as the race was just 1/4 mile from home.
After yesterday I don't know if I could stomach a beer after a hard race.
