The Beer Mile

The Rules:
1. Drink a beer
2. Run 400m
3. Drink a beer
4. Run 400m
5. Drink a beer
6. Run 400m
7. Drink a beer
8. Run 400m

Total Distance = 1600m ~ 1mile
Total Beers = 4

Penalty lap (400m) for throwing up.

My Splits:
Beer 1 + Run 1 = 1:55.56
Beer 2 = 1:02.57
Run 2 = 1:24.66
Beer 3 = 1:34.41
Run 3 = 1:25.48
Beer 4 = 3:09.15 (This beer did not want to go down. It was a PBR and it was fizzy and awful; the first 3 were Busch and were much smoother)
Run 4 = 1:44.22 (didn't feel very good, lol).
Total Time = 12:16.05 (6th OA - winning time was 6:32)

Identities obscured to protect the innocent. 

This was my last leg. I feel terrible in this picture, but surprisingly I look pretty good.
This was my second (and hopefully last) beer mile. I can't find my times for the first one, but I'm sure they were faster. Advice: Don't use Pabst Blue Ribbon.
