I ran a beer half-mile for practice tonight. First beer was 27 sec; second beer was 45 sec. However, I slipped and fell at the driveway turnaround during lap one. I tore my right hand open in the same spot as when I fell on the RWB trail 3 weeks ago! So I lost time on that, and I was talking to Amy about it while chugging the second beer. Hopefully, I can get under 10 minutes on race day, but it won't be easy.
Warm beer chugs MUCH faster.
Wet shoes (from slick grass due to today's rain) are dangerous through the turnaround.
