Beer in marathon recovery? Drink up!

Last night my mom posted two things on my facebook wall. One was this Trace Adkins music video

The other was an article about two of my favorite things…beer

And running. But more specifically, running marathons or long distances.

In Munich, there were 270 men all in their 40s. Half were given a placebo while the other half were given a “alcohol-free beer”. All of the men were currently training for the Munich Marathon. Every day for three weeks, the runners drank about a liter to a liter and a half before the race.

Before I give away everything from the article, do yourself a favor and grab a beer and read it for yourself. You’ll thank me later 😉
