I haven't smoked a cigarette

I haven't smoked a cigarette since New Year's Day...I swear, now that I'm officially a non-smoker, that I'm going to start running, just so I can get good enough to run in this club...because beer after running sounds awesome.

As usual a good time was had

As usual a good time was had by all. Each week we get new faces which is encouraging. Keep in mind that the club is not just for runners, but includes walkers too. We had two walkers this week, plus someone who showed up in a cab!

I'm guessing they're not in it for the exercise part.

I can't get past the beer

I can't get past the beer bottle in the running shoe. That's rank, and probably skunked the beer.

Really?? I think it looks DELISH! Hahaha.

I was kind of hoping that everyone drank the first beer out of their own running shoe, but I guess that isn't the tradition for THIS beer/running club. Harumph.

Yes, that picture is disturbing and was unauthorized. The beer was fine, but I was not happy about the running shoe on the kitchen counter.

Since the Beer Runners were

Since the Beer Runners were founded upon the spirit of scientific inquiry, I thought it might be interesting to add that there apparently is speculation that the hops in beer may actually stimulate and increase milk production for nursing mothers. I haven't found any legitimate studies on this so this information is anecdotal at best. Nonetheless, hurray beer ....
