It is the world's purest, most elemental sport. It is an event that, more than any other, connects with the human experience.
This is the Beer Mile. The participant runs a full mile while pausing to drink a 12-ounce beer every quarter mile. Only athletic titans can even attempt this feat. And Josh Harris, a 25-year old Australian, is their new king. He recently ran the Beer Mile in 4 minutes and 46.2 seconds. The official Beer Mile organization has recognized Harris as the new world champion. You can watch his run in the video below:
Harris's run is truly inspiring. I will immediately begin intensive training for this event. Well, half of it.
