If you've ever subjected your body to a beer mile race -- easily one of the world's ultimate tests of physical and emotional endurance -- you might want to contact Elvira Montes for some pointers. The 81-year-old grandmother of three was, not only the oldest person to finish during the 2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships in Austin, Texas on Tuesday night, but also outran her daughter and son-in-law, according to a report by Runner's World. Needless to say, she's a freaking hero.
In case you were wondering, a beer mile is almost exactly what it sounds like: participants slurp down a 12oz beer and run a quarter-mile lap on a track -- four times. It is, not only a test of your ability to chug several beers and run a whole mile in a short period of time, but also a challenge to keep the sudsy stuff down.
