Richard E. is the Pittsburgh Happy Hour entrant for this years Liberty Mile Race. The Liberty Mile will be held on August 9 at 7:00 p.m. in downtown Pittsburgh. Although many will compete, only one racer will truly captivate the hearts of the entire city of Pittsburgh. Richard Ernsberger. For more information about the race please visit http://libertymile.org/. (They even have race day drink specials listed!)
If you want to hangout with me next Friday while Richard wins the race, I'll be at some local sud shop live tweeting the entire race with the folks from Unlock Pittsburgh. Speaking of Unlock Pittsburgh, I can't even imagine what sad hippopotamus they will be sponsoring for the Liberty Mile.
Why did you start running?
Something to do outside.
How fast can you run?
8 minute mile comfortably.
What inspires you to run?
A nice day outside.
What is your favorite place to run?
What is your favorite beer?
What is your favorite animal?
How confident are you on a scale of 1-10 that you can beat the runner sponsored by Unlock Pittsburgh?
10 Running to beat another person’s time seems to be counter to the purpose of the fastest mile competition. It should be about making new friends and take a quick jog in nice weather down Liberty Avenue. But then again, Pittsburgh Happy Hour is a better blog than Unlock Pittsburgh, so I need to step it up to keep up appearances.
