Nobody, least of all herself, was counting on the time, however over time she started placing away startling quantities of alcohol. On a weeknight, she might end a six-pack. At an occasion like Crested Butte’s legendary chainless downhill race….. totaling eight or 10 beers over the course of the day.
This all appeared regular in a city the place many locals concurrently partied and pulled off informal athletic feats, and Phillips obtained used to waking up with a hangover and driving it off too.
Holy crap! Even in my faculty consuming days she would’ve given me a run for my cash.
Once you get used to waking up and doing issues with a hangover… you will have an issue.
I’ve by no means purchased into the ‘wholesome’ advantages of alcohol. Just like the ‘glass of wine a day’ being good for you. However consuming a beer or wine right here or there’s no extra un-healthy than consuming potato chips or quick meals. Ya gotta have some pleasures in life.
From what I see, MTB’ers and off roaders appear to have extra of a prevalence for consuming.
Considered one of my street biking teams does a weekly experience that begins at a brewery. Within the peak of summer time there will probably be 40+ riders. Afterwards there’s solely a handful that cease in for a beer afterwards.
