The Best Part of the Day

To tide y'all over until I finish my official race report for the Detroit Marathon (I'm working on it, I swear), here's a picture of me enjoying a well-deserved pint of Stoudt's Pale Ale at lunch on Sunday:

This was one of the most delicious beers I have ever had.

Congratulations on finishing your first marathon, Sarah!

I'm starting a new web community for runners (and other endurance athletes) at www.Just-Finish.com and I'd love to send you a "Just Finish" decal as a small reward.

Please email me at kevin@just-finish.com with your shipping address and I'll get one in the mail tomorrow.

Again, congrats on such an awesome accomplishment!

The post-marathon beer is the best. Congrats on such a great finish.

Are those Brooks you wore?

Sarah said...

chia-- It was in the car. :)

Nitmos-- IT WAS. SO. GOOD. It also put me to sleep, but that picture will have to wait for my race report.

Viper-- Yeah, Brooks Adrenalines, but how did you know? You can't see my feet in the picture.

Congrats. A well deserved beer. Always the best way to finish a marathon.

Congrats on finishing a marathon, You Warrior!

I don't know marathons, but I know beer. And here's what I know:

"Beer goes in here."

When I finished my last 5k, I blogged about it while drinking a fine, hand-crafted doppelbock.

I could talk beer all day, only because they won't let me drink it all day here at work.

In conclusion, I'm glad I stopped by here at Drinking in the Sun. Know any good running blogs?

Catching up from vacation. Read the post below with your shoes. I just got a new pair free from Akron and I'm about to retire my old ones. They're good shoes.

Sarah said...

Viper-- I'm on my second consecutive pair of Adrenalines. I really like them. They work well for my feet (big & wide). I think it's so cool that Akron hands out free shoes. That's so much better than the bag full of advertisements that I got for Detroit. This year I didn't even get any free samples of anything!
