A friend showed me this old Nike Free video when I was talking about all the great running commercials I’ve seen lately. The whole thing is awesome but the end just makes it.
I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by this hilarious blog article I found. I was actually searching for a race that combines drinking beer and running (I’ve heard of these before and wanted to share this information with a co-worker) but I was gifted with this first.
It’s about a guy who ran a half marathon while drinking beer - a beer a mile, in fact. He didn’t run during the actual race but retraced the San Francisco Half Marathon course a several hours after it had gone off. It’s entertaining, anyway, and I haven’t read the rest of the articles on his blog, ”Exercising while Intoxicated,” but I’m sure they’re similarly goofy and fun to read.
Controversial, sure…but this Pearl Izumi ad gets you thinking, doesn’t it?
