Morning Monsoon and the Beer Song

There is nothing like a sudden down pour to help your tempo run. Well, maybe the beer song, which I also use as my "talk" test when I need to determine if I'm pushing enough. And it works, because I run faster so I can have beer.

Think of Do-ra-mi (from the Sound of Music) only this version is much cooler:

Dough, the thing that buys me beer
Ray, the guy who sells me beer
Me, the one who's drinking beer
Fa, a long way to the john
So, I'll have another beer
La, la, la, la, la, la, beer
Tea, no thanks, I'm having beer

Cheers for singing the beer song in the rain


  1. I am not really sure what it is about a cold beer after physical activity but the two just seem to go hand and hand, runners, bikers even hikers all have that frothy mug in common; maybe we aren't all that different after all.

  2. I'll sing the beer song with you anytime!

  3. I had the best cream stout in Seattle. Looking for a recipe.

  4. I must admit that I ran to McMenamins and met my family for dinner yesterday. Nothing like a few well earned pints after a long run!
