What a weekend! Marathon 22 successfully completed and beers most definitely earned! I ran hard for the first six of the seven 3.85mile laps and then took an easy walked lap for the final few miles. It was a good test race and am looking forward to seeing how hard I can really push it on my first race of 2017, the SVN New Year’s Day Marathon.
Now back to the beers! I was lucky enough to receive a review box from the team at Beer52 a couple of weeks ago and have been slowly working through the contents. Beer is a great “recovery drink” (Runner’s World have an article on it – the Health Benefits of Beer) and so a regular delivery of beer by way of the Beer52 subscription service would mean this could be the perfect gift for the beer drinking runner in your life!
Post-training beers, post-race beers, or even “just because it’s Friday” beers can all be taken care of by the monthly arrival of 8 craft beers to their (or your) doorstep!
Beer52 send you freshly brewed craft beers, (you get them 4-6 weeks after the brewing has completed), and as a subscriber they’ll tailor the beer delivery to your tastes. I can’t think of a better way to try new beers and avoid the crush of the local supermarket. It’s certainly worked out well for me as I got to try some great new flavours that I wouldn’t have picked on a Tesco 3 for £5 deal.
If you’re interested in signing up, or gifting someone for Christmas (and avoiding the Christmas Eve rush at the stores) then make sure you use the code TAILFISH10 to get £10 off your order!
Me, I’m off to drink some more beer to help my legs recover!
