Man Runs a Sub-5-minute Mile While Downing 4 Beers

Posted by Dave Segal on Wed, Apr 30, 2014 at 1:37 PM

Yeah, this may seem like a fratboy stunt, but have you run a 5-minute mile while not drinking beer? Thought not. James Nielsen bust out a 4:57 mile while chugging a can of the stuff before completing each of four laps of the track. Granted, it was Budweiser, but still… It’s a remarkable feat. (I didn't know this before I saw this digg.com post, but Beer Mile is a real thing and Nielsen just broke the record for it.) My best mile time is… yes, 4:57, stone-cold sober, in high school, so a toast to Nielsen—preferably with something higher quality than Bud.
