The people at Trailhead Beer Market in Knoxville, Tennessee were surprised on Sunday when they saw a runner from the the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon walk in during the race. He enjoyed a beer and a burrito then joined back up with the marathon at around the 20th mile.
Trailhead posted a picture of the man, and the story went viral. Another Knoxville resident posted a picture of the man drinking from a solo cup, saying he chugged a beer two miles before his burrito pit stop.
Eventually, the runner was identified as Jared Nelson. According to the marathon website, Nelson’ finish time was six hours and six minutes…and on a full stomach no less!
