Marathon Runner Stops For Beer And A Burrito

Running can really work up an appetite (So we’ve heard–we’re prepared to take someone else’s word for it). A man in Tennessee took a brief pit stop in the middle of running a marathon to enjoy a burrito and a beer before continuing the race. Trailhead Beer Market in Knoxville shared a photo of the runner enjoying his snack. The caption reads, “The fine stranger popped in, carrying his own burrito and ordered a beer. Of course under the circumstances Joe comped it, he chugged it and disappeared down Island Home Avenue.” WVLT identified the runner as a man named Jared Nelson and other spectators said he had been seen downing a meal two miles prior and even stopped for a mimosa at another point during the race. He finished the race in six hours and 12 minutes. (UPI)
