Seconded. Sometimes it's just the perfect beer for the moment.
Thanks for the kudos guys. I'm gonna' lay low for the next two weeks or so and let my achilles heal up. Though the rest of me is a bit torn an frayed as well (particularly my quads/IT bands), mainly from the downhills, but nothing too bad. Heading to Maui for a few weeks with the family soon. I think I'll start throwing in some random jogs there, with the idea of building back up for another marathon in the fall. I guess the San Diego Rn'R Marathon is well known for being...
Soft sand barefoot was all I ran for years before I started training for this marathon 2.5mos ago.

It was harder than I thought, but I did come in under my 4hr goal at 3:48:46. The longest training run i did was just over 20 miles. Hit a real difficult stretch at mile 20, where there is a nasty 1.5mi hill to climb. I...

Did 8mi at an 8:13 pace. Was a hungover nightmare.
12.1 @ 7:38/mi pace. First marathon in sight. Weird to me that 12mi has become a not so long run after these months of training.
6mi at 7:23
Nice. Bruery is a nice celebration beer. Hope you had some others too!
Maybe I misunderstood "2013 birthday brew?"
