James Nielsen has broken a running world record and has gone viral! What was his accomplishment? He ran a ‘Beer Mile’ in just under five minutes. What exactly is a ‘Beer Mile’ you might ask? 

According to BeerMile.com, a ‘Beer Mile’ is when a runner runs four quarter mile laps, but first chugs a traditional 12 oz can of beer before each lap. 

James has become the first to ever run a ‘Beer Mile’ in under 5 minutes, clocking in at 4:57! Now, this video of his run has gone viral with over 400,000 hits! Congratulations!
