SUAMICO, Wis. (AP) -- Only in Wisconsin do beer and exercise mix.
Several hundred people laced up yesterday morning for a two-mile race in which suds were the primary refresher of choice.
Competitors in the 19th annual Beer Belly Two might not be considered athletes -- but they know how to have a good time.
Racer Doug Burmeister says his kids were running the race, but he figured he'd catch up to them eventually. After all, he noted, there were a lot of beer stops.
Beer Belly veteran Mike Marin says this is one workout he can really get into. He says this way the wife lets him have a few beers because he's getting a little exercise.
The event has raised more than 350-thousand dollars for local charities since its inception.
