I might have to take up drinking

by Christina @ The Athletarian on October 25, 2012

I am absolutely not a drinker.  I never have been.  I think the last time I tried an alcoholic beverage was about six years ago.  I don’t avoid it for any other reason than the fact that I hate the taste of it.  Don’t even try to convince me “you can’t taste it in this one, I swear!” or “this tastes just like fruit punch!” because IT DOESN’T.  Any and all forms of alcohol (yes, wine included) taste like gasoline to me (not that I’ve ever tried gasoline…but you know what I mean).

This only happened because Dean bet me a Tiffany necklace that I wouldn’t take a sip of his drink. Don’t mess with me and Tiff. I WON.

My hate for alcohol has never been a problem.  I save money, I can eat my calories instead of drink them, I am never hungover, and I can take care of everyone else who drinks by driving them home if need be.  This weekend though, Quinton is having what he calls his Second Annual Beer Run.  I didn’t go last year because I was busy…or maybe I just thought it was weird to run and drink at a man’s house who I met over the internet.  All is good now, we ran Tough Mudder together in animal print pants, and I know he is normal.  But I got suckered into the beer run.

Here are the rules: drink, run a kilometre, repeat until you have run five kilometres.  Drink options: beer, vodka shots, root beer.  Now I know there is root beer on there but have you seen the sugar content in a can of that stuff?!  First off, each can has 152 calories and then the sugar is just out of whack – 39 freaking grams per can.  That would take me to 760 calories and 195 grams of sugar.  I am not a huge calorie counter but no thanks.  Beer isn’t any better so I am left with vodka as my “best” option (I think…am I right?  Is it even the best option?).  I won’t even lie when I say I don’t think I have ever even had vodka.  I am scared.  Really, really scared.

I really want to participate because it is so different from anything else I have ever done but I am terrified for my life.  I need advice from you seasoned drinkers…

Is five shots of vodka really that much??

Do I need to take up drinking tonight and tomorrow to practice?  Please say no.

Any other non-drinkers out there?

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway!  Tomorrow is the last day!

OMG – if you have 5 shots of vodka you will pass out. Or throw up. Or both. LOL!

I can’t be much help… I love me some booze. Can you just take a sip and spit it out?


2 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:08 am

Oh man. I am so scared. Maybe I can spit out!! I will have to ask…or maybe I will just pretend to drink it and spit it out when no one is looking hah. Don’t tell! ;)


3 Jenn's Adventures October 25, 2012 at 1:23 pm

BARF! I’m a seasoned drinker, vodka fan, and even my tummy is in a twist thinking bout FIVE vodka shots! I will say if you have a chaser, it’s better HOWEVER, in a short amount of time AND being a non-drinker you. will. get. shitfaced.

Since you NEVER drink, your immediate sphere might be pushing you for the shots route and selling you on the idea by pointing out it’s less calories and BLAH BLAH BLAH merely because I cam CERTAIN you. will. be. HILARIOUS!

This is what I would do… (if can) Start with two shots of vodka and taper with three beers.

Whatever you do — do not consume any sugar. If you drink and have sugar you. will. hate. life. HANG OVER CITY!

PS: This post is awesome–you’re awesome:)

ut I would seriously consider BEER. hahaha I didn’t


4 Jenn's Adventures October 25, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Not sure how this post ended up being a reply to you guys’ thread — and it looks like I forgot to delete that last sentence — my bad:) <3


5 Em October 25, 2012 at 9:08 am

I hardly ever drink anymore, and a very small amount of alcohol goes straight to my head. 5 shots of vodka is quite a bit!


6 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:09 am

Hahah ohhh mannnn. Looks like I’m in trouble.


7 sam October 25, 2012 at 9:08 am

haha this entry is priceless! I gotta say, by the end of 5 vodka shots, as a non drinker, you WILL be drunk! but this sounds like a LOT of fun, i think you should try it out. This coming from a drinker though :P


8 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:11 am

It’ll probably be fun…but I don’t know for how long! I can’t wait to recap this run. I’m sure it’ll be quite different from all of my others…


9 Brooke @ Exercise For Fries October 25, 2012 at 9:14 am

5 shots of vodka in a short amount of time is a lot. Especially if you don’t drink. You will definitely vomit. Just stick to the root beer (do you have to drink a whole can at each kilometer?) you’ll be far better off.


10 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:18 am

Yes! A whole can! How the heck am I supposed to run with five cans of root beer in me? I don’t drink pop either. Won’t it slosh around? Bahaha I know nothing.


11 Brooke October 25, 2012 at 9:42 am

Oh no! You won’t be any better off with beer.. Maybe you should just cheer people on. Or take a pretend shot of vodka…


12 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:44 am

Maybe water instead of vodka…looks the same, doesn’t it?! ;)


13 Sarah J October 25, 2012 at 9:16 am

I agree with the other posters, 5 shots of vodka, in that little amount of time is a hell of a lot of alcohol. I would be tempted to do 1 beer, 1 root beer, 1 beer, 1 root beer. Regardless of sugar or calories. Sometimes you just gotta forget about the calories your consuming for the sake of having fun.


14 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:21 am

I don’t drink beer or root beer either so I think those two would be just as bad…maybe even worse. A can is A LOT! I’m going to have a big gassy stomach haha. You wanna run it for me? :P


15 Lisa October 25, 2012 at 9:18 am

Do you think you could maybe get an exception because your not a drinker. 5 shots of Vodka is def a no no! maybe 1 shot for every 2 km?


16 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:22 am

Maybe half shots? Do you think I would survive that??


17 Lisa October 25, 2012 at 10:01 am

Yea, I think half shots… max.
Maybe sips!


18 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:07 am

Hahaha okay I will keep that in mind. It will probably still get me hammered though!


19 Lisa October 25, 2012 at 10:14 am

Oh yea! you would probably be hammered off of 1 shot! If that’s any consolation.

20 MCM Mama October 25, 2012 at 9:18 am

Can you do shots of root beer instead? Or even shots of say a mixed drink – more oj than vodka? 5 shots of vodka would be awful. (Trust me, based on an experience in college, you don’t want to go there.) 5 cans of root beer would put me in a sugar coma LOL, but five shots wouldn’t be too bad and you’d run it off…


21 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:24 am

Shots of root beer? I would be made fun of for the rest of my life hahaha. I’m definitely going to propose that though. I definitely wouldn’t mind shots of root beer!


22 hejnks October 25, 2012 at 9:18 am

you’ll be fine. 5 shots of vodka you wont be able to feel yourself run

seeing as your not a drinker you will be in a very good place after 5 shots, and its ‘less’ liquid so it wont be sloshing around in you’re stomach making you feel ill

good luck!!


23 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:28 am

This was the first supportive comment hahaha!! Thank you for having faith in me!


24 hejnks October 25, 2012 at 10:43 am

you gota look at the positives!!
5 shots this one time wont hurt you, have fun, while you can and youre young! x


25 Scott @ Your Inner Skinny October 25, 2012 at 9:21 am

You. Will. Be. On. Your. Ass.

5oz of vodka will knock you on your ass! I wish I was going to be there to witness this.


26 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:29 am

Can you please come? Maybe I’ll take a video and that will be my vlog debut.


27 Melissa October 25, 2012 at 9:23 am

Ok, is the object of this run to see who will throw up and/or pass out first? It just seems cruel to me. In my head, exercise (ok, any physical exertion) and drinking don’t mix. You drink, you gt dehydrated, you have bad judgement, and then you also run? Doesn’t make any sense. I’m with another commenter – take a sip and spit it out. Out of all the “options,” vodka is your best bet in terms of calorie/sugar content, but none of the options are really good if they contain alcohol. YUCK!
(And yes I drink. Mostly wine. A lot. Give me a break, I have two boys. But I cannot drink and run. My bod simply cannot handle it. No way.)


28 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:32 am

You’re telling me! This doesn’t make sense to me but I think that I will be a great source of entertainment for people. I’m thinking the spit-out technique will work, just don’t tell anyone! Enjoy your wine, girl! I don’t judge!


29 Melissa October 25, 2012 at 9:36 am

Of course the entertainment value will be priceless. Hydrate more than you usually do and you should be fine :)
And never, ever drink blueberry vodka. I still can’t stomach regular blueberries after an….experience.


30 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:42 am

Haha wise words. Thanks for the tip!!!


31 Bess @ Bess Be Fit October 25, 2012 at 9:24 am

Um you will absolutely get completely bombed off 5 shots of vodka, especially that close together. Mixed with the fact you don’t drink at all and have zero tolerance AND will be running, it’s likely you’ll get sick. That’s a short amount of time to pound 5 shots of liquor. Not to mention vodka tastes awful. Can you get tequila?? Lol…just kidding. I’d go with the beer personally if I were you but if you don’t want alcohol then go with the root beer. I think the vodka would be a bad choice for someone who doesn’t drink and you’re tiny!! You will be hammered.


32 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:34 am

I hate beer, Bess! I really do! I think I’ll get sick no matter what I drink, even the root beer. We will see what happens. I just have to make sure I document everything so I can share it with you haha.


33 Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner October 25, 2012 at 9:28 am

Oh my goodness…5 shots of vodka and you will not be able to walk. Seriously. Don’t do it! Is the only reason to avoid the root beer the calories? Because a standard shot of vodka (at 1.5 ounces) is 109 calories anyway….so even the vodka is going to be nearly 600 calories. Just drink the root beer, girl!


34 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:36 am

I’m thinking 1 ounce shots… I don’t even know what that means haha. Five cans of root beer will suck just as bad. I rarely ever drink pop and I think my stomach will explode. This should be interesting.


35 Novella @ A Healthy Medium October 25, 2012 at 9:30 am

Ok, maybe I’m just ridiculous, but this sounds like fun to me haha. This is what your 20s are for, to do stupid ass things like this. Go for it, and get Dean to take pictures when you’re on your ass ;)


36 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:38 am

Haha thanks!!! This is definitely stupid. Very stupid. But I’m sure it will be very funny as well! I can’t wait to recap baha.


37 christa October 25, 2012 at 9:33 am

That sounds awesome! I would do the beer however. I drink normally and 5 shots of vodka would kick my a$$.


38 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:39 am

You wanna come and run it for me? I promise I will take good pictures of you!! I’m going to get my booty kicked for sure.


39 Wendy October 25, 2012 at 9:35 am

You will NOT vomit from five shots unless of course you took them right after each other, which you aren’t. Have fun!!! You never do it, so get silly and enjoy yourself.


40 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 9:43 am

Thanks Wendy! I’m sure it will be a good time…if not for me, then for everyone else watching me!! Hahaha!


41 Jenny @ The Little JBird October 25, 2012 at 9:43 am

I don’t want to scare you or discourage you either but 5 shots is an awful lot, especially as you don’t drink. Obviously the alcohol content of vodka is high, you’re smaller in size, and you probably won’t have a ton of food on your stomach before you run…no bueno in my opinion. If you choose beer would it be a whole can each time like the root beer? Yikes – 5 cans of either is a lot. Maybe they can adjust amounts for you? I’m sure it will be fun nonetheless. Please be sure Dean gets some good photos of your drunkenness. Hee!
Good luck, girl! Oh and congrats on the necklace! ;)


42 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:00 am

Haha thanks Jenny! I just got an update from my friend and he said I can probably do a vodka cooler or something like that. I’m assuming that’s better?! There will be photos, don’t you worry!


43 Lindsay October 25, 2012 at 9:44 am

OMG vodka is the worst! Even back when I used to drink that would do me in. Now, I wouldn’t make it past shot number two I’m sure. If I were you I would try a shot of it one day just to see how it sits in your stomach. Maybe when you take the shots you can ‘accidentally’ spill most of it, or dump some (or all) out. I’m sure you can be sneaky!


44 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:01 am

Sneaky is my middle name!! I’ll just have to make sure to be really clumsy!


45 Gillian October 25, 2012 at 9:45 am

Hahaha I want to do the wine marathon in France one summer! Run, drink, run, drink. I might pass out but it sounds so epic.


46 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:02 am

I didn’t even know that existed! Sounds epic indeed! I hate wine too but I’d do it with you!


47 Leah October 25, 2012 at 9:49 am

I am a drinker!!! Clean eater, bikini competitor, fitness freak. I haven’t had a drink of alcohol for about 2 months due to the fact I am training for a competition right now-and boy I cannot wait to have a cold one.
However, with that being said, since you are not a drinker I would NOT do this event (I would love to participate in something like this) But 5 shots of vodka is quite a bit, even without the running it will have you feeling like someone ran over your head with a bicycle. I am guessing, with the added running, you would probably end up puking. I think if you did this event, sad to say, but you would hate alcohol even more (the smell of it will probably make you queazy)

If you do decide to do it (which would be a great experience!) I would definitely “practice”, because you will need to build up your tolerance. I would suggest having a nightcap every night leading up to the event (preferably with vodka) so you can get used to the taste.



48 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:05 am

Okay first off you are amazing for training for a bikini competition. I am itching to do it one day but know I can’t say no to chocolate for an extended period of time. Truth.

Thanks for the tips. I only have today and tomorrow to “practice” and I doubt I can build my tolerance in two days haha! I have no idea what is going to go down on Saturday but I’m sure it will be an experience to remember…or not remember…who knows!


49 Leah October 25, 2012 at 10:12 am

Personally, I am so excited you are doing it!! :D
I think because you are kind of warned of what might happen, it may not be so horrible (if that makes sense?) I am so excited to hear how it goes for you!
Have Fun!


50 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:56 am

Thanks Leah!


51 Alex @ therunwithin October 25, 2012 at 10:10 am

ugh people used to do this at my college, it just sounds painful!


52 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:17 am

Yup. Sounds pretty awful to me too!!


53 Colleen Keith October 25, 2012 at 10:13 am

My friends and I consider vodka shots the nasty of nasty shots. They are honestly the worst. I’m a once a month for a big party type of social drinker only, so I’m right up there with you where most if it tastes like gasoline (you should try Palm Bays, but try not to poplar the sugar content hahaha). However, my heavy drinking friends even hold their noses through vodka shots. You will die. And have no taste buds or stomach lining.

My solution for you: have you heard of Zevia? It is soda flavoured with stevia! Sugar free! Surely you could bring your own root beer? I’ve tried that flavour and its pretty close to the real thing :) or tell them that you have an infection that causes you to avoid sugar to recover (my friend had that, she even had to avoid fruit! How are you acting skills hahaha)! You can do it! Just gotta be clever about it!


54 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:19 am

Omg you are a GENIUS! I freaking love zevia! I am going to go get some for backup just in case. I am so excited and happy you commented. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that! Thank you!


55 Falon October 25, 2012 at 10:18 am

I have never had five shots! I worry about you, Sweet Pea. Booze and activity has just never mixed for me.


56 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:20 am

Haha it probably won’t mix for me either. I’ve never tried it so I don’t know what will happen. Maybe it’ll make me really fast?!?


57 Tiff October 25, 2012 at 10:32 am

The sugary root beer would give me cramps, and I’m no liquor fan. I have, however, always wanted to do a beer run. Maybe one day… ;)


58 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:39 am

You should come!! You have two days to get here!!


59 Kristen October 25, 2012 at 10:44 am

I am so glad to hear that someone else doesn’t like alcohol!! I can’t stand the taste or the smell of it. I have also had people say that you can’t taste it in a “fruity” drink but yes you can. I think vodka has the highest alcohol level of all the options. I would probably do the vodka anyways because I know I couldn’t do the beer. And I don’t like root beer either.


60 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:54 am

Finally! Someone who hates alcohol as much as me! People are liars when they say you can’t taste it!


61 Kim October 25, 2012 at 10:46 am

Did you ever see Coyote Ugly? Take the shot, don’t swallow, then spit it back into a water bottle. It will just look like you’re chasing the shot or cleaning your mouth out. And, no one will see because water and vodka are the same colour. Problem solved, and I’m sure you’re allowed to have water with you for the run! Good luck! I’m sure you will have a great time :)


62 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:55 am

You are genius!! I’ve never seen Coyote Ugly but that sounds like a perfect plan! No one will ever know muahahaha!


63 Julie October 25, 2012 at 10:53 am

Sounds kinda fun, but 5 shots is a lot. Especially if you are not a drinker. I rarely drink either. 5 shots & I’d be hammered. I think if I drank 5 cans of sugary pop during a run I’d throw up (5 shots would do it too). Try to drink something else.
No matter what be careful with this race.


64 Christina @ The Athletarian October 25, 2012 at 10:56 am

I agree. I don’t know my limits so I will have to be very careful. Thank you so much for the comment!!


65 Boston Bound Brunette October 25, 2012 at 11:05 am

I can’t believe you are doing this! I would stick to the rootbeer or maybe get a diet rootbeer! I think you are going to end up sick! Oh and please have Dean give me a call, I would like to place a few bets with him lol!! I need a new LV!!


66 Sarah October 25, 2012 at 11:09 am

I’m not a drinker, either. I’ve actually never even tasted a sip of alcohol. It’s not for lack of access, although I am still 6 months away from 21. I just don’t see the point in losing control, drinking something that doesn’t taste good just to feel a “buzz,” and most importantly, the ridiculous amount of calories! I’d rather eat ten bowls of ice cream (okay, maybe not 10) or a slab of chocolate fudge cake, than waste a days worth of calories on a drink that has a bitter taste to it.
Even to me, 5 shots of Vodka sounds like a LOT of alcohol. My friends all make fun of me and say I’d be gone after 1, so I think I’d be dead at 5, ha


67 brista October 25, 2012 at 11:13 am

If you NEVER drink, then yes, five is too much! Your tolerance level is probably two shots, okay, three shots, DRUNK. Five would make you super drunk and probably throw up. If you’re going to do alcohol, then I’d alternate rootbeer and vodka (if you’re allowed).


68 Gemma October 25, 2012 at 11:13 am

5 shots is way too much for a non drinker – do the root beer shots or the root beer cans. Good luck and keep us posted!!!


69 Carrie @ Enduring Runner October 25, 2012 at 12:12 pm

5 shots is an INSANE amount of vodka and I drink! Go with the rootbeer or see if you can replace the vodka with water- they’re both clear and odorless (if it is good vodka)!!! Good luck and don’t get sick.


70 brittany October 25, 2012 at 12:20 pm

In university we had an annual Run N’ Chug.. only beer was allowed but they were the mini pony beers (still added up to be a lot by the end!!!)..I’ll just say unless you burp the whole time you’re running..most people end up throwing up along the way or at the end…either one you choose will be tough to handle because you’re not used to it..BUT if you do vodka maybe use a sip of rootbeer after it to get rid of the nasty taste!!
I think either way it will be a blast and you’ll be happy you participated !! :) have funnnn!!!


71 Kayla October 25, 2012 at 1:01 pm

This is hilariously awesome! I may have to steal this idea. :) You can totally do it though, you’ll be tipsy by the 2nd km and having fun!!


72 Danielle @WorkItWearItEatIt October 25, 2012 at 3:56 pm

The good news is you will probably win because taking a shot is WAY FASTER than drinking a WHOLE beer! Hahah this sounds so fun, I need to implement this in my life. 5 shots is a lot for someone who doesn’t drink, but I still think you will survive without tossing your cookies or you know…blacking out. aha.


73 Nelly October 25, 2012 at 4:02 pm

First off, I think that’s great that you don’t drink, that is a good thing. You take in a lot of empty calories with beer and wine. I drink sometimes, mainly at special events.

For the beer run – I’ve done the beer mile before (4 beers, 4 laps), it took me about 14 minutes to do. At the end, I was dying and felt awful. And I swore that I’d never do another beer mile again. haha You just get so full of carbonation that you can’t burp it out and you just feel awful.

Since you aren’t a drinker, if you have 5 vodka shots you will be in really rough shape. My guess is that you would puke once either during the run or after. Especially since you will be working out, and working out processes the alcohol even faster as opposed to if you were doing nothing – since your metabolism is going faster with working out.

5 beers is probably just as bad as the vodka shots, since you will be totally full from the carbonation of the beers, plus you’ll be drunk by the end.

So I would choose the 5 root beers, since even though you’ll be really full from the carbonation, at least you won’t be drunk at the end. Just try to burp a lot during the whole thing! Really curious to hear what option you choose and how it goes lol


74 Felicia October 25, 2012 at 6:17 pm

o my gosh you are teeny tiny and don’t drink, so 5 shots is NOT a good idea! beer is a better choice :) orrrrr you can do the run part and i can drink!! <–that sounds like a better plan


75 gabsgranny October 25, 2012 at 6:53 pm

You could be risking your life.
Alcohol poisoning is a serious — and sometimes deadly — consequence of drinking large amounts of alcohol in a short period of time. Drinking too much too quickly can affect your breathing, heart rate and gag reflex and potentially lead to coma and death.

Binge drinking — rapidly downing five or more drinks in a row — is a main cause of alcohol poisoning. Alcohol poisoning can also occur when you accidentally or intentionally drink household products that contain alcohol


76 Brittany @ Little b's healthy habits October 25, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Hahahaha you seriously crack me up. Coming from a former partyyyy girl… I think you’ll be totally fine and will have so much fun! PLEASE record this!! :)


77 Missy October 25, 2012 at 8:39 pm

I drink beer and wine and can hold my own, but I am a lightweight when it comes to liquor, 5 shots of vodka would do me in and for someone that doesn’t drink, that’s pretty risky. Christina, if it was me I wouldn’t do the shots or if you do don’t do all five.


78 Susan K October 25, 2012 at 10:56 pm

The thought of booze and exertion makes me feel ill just thinking about it. If its bring your own; vodka and water look the same! I know because as a teenager I used to pinch my parents vodka and replace with water. That was until my Mums bridge ladies busted me :)


79 Q October 26, 2012 at 8:41 am

Everybody Calm Dung.

First of all…nobody would let Ms. Christina drink 6 shots of straight vodka. Maybe watered down vodka cooler or something. She will be in good hands. Sloppy – but good hands. We’ve got quite a few non-drinking volunteers helping to make sure things stay safe. And you can be guaranteed that Dean will get some good freaking pics.

Second of all…there are lots of examples of where taking two or more great things and putting them together…make the combination fantastic. Peanut butter and jelly? Pie and ice cream? Yoga and mats? I’m sure back when the first guy said “Let’s swim AND bike AND run” he got some slack. Now these ironmen are touted as heroes.

Anyway, this is the SECOND “Q’s Annual Beer Run”**. If we’re doing it again this year with so many competitors that must mean that the first one was a tremendous success!

There are a very many strategies on how to approach and compete in such an event…many offered up by the countless great beer runners before us. Their legacy will live on through us tomorrow. On top of that, there is a ton of excellent advice right here from all of C’s followers. But all of the advice is as useful as a warm bucket of hamster vomit…because tomorrow…anything could (and prolly will) happen.

**Truthfully…I don’t actually remember the first “Q’s Annual Beer Run”. But I’ve been told it was wicked awesome.


80 Ali Mc October 26, 2012 at 10:03 pm

I think tequila should’ve been mandatory as a buy in ;)


81 Jenn @ Run It My Way October 26, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Ok after reading some of these comments I can see why you’re worried!! I’ve done the Beer Mile before (it’s a real thing- google it!) It’s brutal haha, but awesome. Life would be pretty boring if we chose the healthy option EVERY time – you have to live a little too! You might get sick.. But that’s ok, not the end of the world! And if you have friends there to make sure you’re ok, you will be fine. It’s a life experience – go for it!

I’m sure the Beer Mile was not exactly the best choice I’ve made for my health, but it sure wasn’t the worst either! And I look back at it and I’m glad I did it, it was hilarious and awesome and I loved being the only girl willing to brave it. Go do it and have fun!!!

And definitely make a vlog… hehe after those 5 vodka shots, I’m willing to bet it will be pretty entertaining ;)

I want to come just to see you on 5 shots of vodka. I hate vodka – I prefer tequila. My advice – if you down a glass of water with every shot, you’ll be fine. SUGAR is a hangover – alcohol is a great buzz (in moderation) – HAVE FUN!

after reading all the other comments – I will agree = YOU WILL BE DRUNK. so drunk. like super hungover the next day drunk. but it’ll be fun. and I stand by my huge glass of water per shot…..it works for me!

Okay, just read this and is it bad if I think you would be fine. I used to party a lot and I definitely could do this. But, on the other hand I drink. I think 4 would be a good amount for you, 5 may push the limit. I mean, you’ll most likely be fine just a little funny running;) And I totally wish I could do this! It sounds like a lot of fun to me! You have to take pictures and have fun!!

Please, please, please do not have 5 shots of vodka. That would not end well, lol!!

So how old is Quentin? 12? no one should be drinking that amount of alcohol in that short a period of time. No matter how experienced a drinker they are. It’s dangerous and it’s unhealthy. Would you counsel your students to do it? or to do things for gifts or money that are against their principles? Good grief.

I know we’ve talked about this – non drinker here too! I honestly wouldn’t do it. If you do, please be safe and have fun, but BE SAFE! Maybe pretend to drink it?? ;-)
