I did not have a training trail race this weekend, so I went to a brewery. My training is going well, I think. I really will not know until I finish the 50K in two weeks. This upcoming week I have a 25K that almost retired me last year. I am on pace to get 200 miles this month. I have had some soreness in my hips and knee, so I trying to find out if I am going to far too soon. A coach in my running group said I needed to take 48 hours off from running and give my body some rest. It was hard after finding some new routes on different trails.

I decided to use my 48hrs off by going to a semi local brewery. I really like this place after one visit. The selection of beer is just enough to cover all the bases but not overwhelming. The atmosphere was laid back but enough noise to be interesting. I, of course, got the hefeweizen and it was fantastic. My favorite was the John Hancock Lager. It is a dark and smooth lager that was very drinkable. They also had a small BBQ stand inside the biergarten which was nice. They had board games and plenty of TVs so we were thoroughly entertained for hours.OutsideInsideMy first flightBBQ sandwich with a John HancockMy wife beating me in Star Wars trivia.
I did kick her butt in checkers 3x. I am now back to more serious training with just six weeks left till the 100K. Nothing better than a trails and ales break.
