Josh Harris is quickly becoming the Michael Jordan of the beer mile.
The Australian first burst onto the scene in a big way when his 5:02 beer mile last year went viral. After there was some controversy about him following the letter of the stringent beer mile bylaws, Harris vowed to continue his career and shoot for a sub 5 beer mile.
“I am an ok runner,” says the 1:07 half marathoner. “But my performance in the Beer Mile easily outshines my running.”
He’s still in pursuit of sub 5, but he recently ran a 5:04 and shared his tips for beer mile success with DailyRelay.com.
As Harris points out, you really can’t adequately understand the unique challenges of a beer mile until you try one.
“The main test in the Beer Mile,” he writes, “is how quickly one can drink the second, third and fourth beers while out of breath, while holding large amounts of volume on board.”
