So, we decided to throw a little Oktoberfestathon with some of our good friends.  What is an Oktoberfestathon might you ask?  Well, think of it as a sort of competitive, yet completely unserious afternoon filled with our favorite things: bikes, beer, brats, and (b)running!

(Yes, we know there is not usually a b before running, just go with it, we thought it was clever.)

Heck, this is even going to include our inaugural Beers and Cheers Mile!  I guess it might be time to start training.
