This Guy Ran A Half Marathon & Shotgunned A Beer At Every Mile Marker (VIDEO)


Absolute legend.

A few days ago, Emmet Farnan propelled himself into legendary status after not dying during a half-marathon while quenching his thirst with something other than water.

The Notre Dame senior took it upon himself to break the two hour barrier for the half marathon, while drinking 13 beers along the way.

He recently posted GoPro footage of himself running the Holy Half Marathon at the University of Notre Dame on April 1 and the rest is history.

“I wish this was an April Fool’s Joke but I’m going to run the Holy Half and I’m going to do it a little special,” Farnan said. “Every mile I’m going to shotgun a beer at the beginning of it. I don’t know how it’s going to go, I’m probably gonna want to die at mile seven or eight, but we’re gonna do it.”

Farnan finished in 1:43:42—just under a 7:55 pace for the half. He did in fact throw up once during the video, but that was minor compared to how many beers he threw down.
