Beer and Running

One of the benefits of running is that you can drink beer afterward. Ask anyone on the bus home from New Bedford last year; I excel not only at running, but also at beer. One of my favorite memories of the summer is basking on the hillside in Charlotte with a few of my favorite running ladies, all caked in mud as we sipped great summer beers after running the Equinox 10K.

So imagine my excitement when this list came out this week. I actually imbibed in a Schneider Weisse last weekend, which must explain a good week of running. I’m looking forward to checking out some of these other brews as well, in the name of running of course.

What’s your favorite post-run beverage?

Happy Weekend, all.

    Interesting list, I never knew Harpoon makes a dunkle, I guess it must not be readily available beyond New England.

    After a race I am happy with whatever beer they have immediately available, when running at home, I usually wait an hour or two before switching from water to beer.

    It is unfortunate that beers the night before a race or long run typically turn out to be a bad idea. I try to avoid Sunday races if at all possible for that reason, limited beer drinking Friday night and minimal to no beer on Saturday night does not equal fun for me.
