Lance Armstrong attempts beer mile, stops running after just one lap

BY foxsports • November 18, 2014

Lance Armstrong is banned from participating in any cycling events because of his history with performance-enhancing drugs, so he tried to take up a new sport.

Spoiler alert: It did not end well for the polarizing former cyclist.

Armstrong participated in everyone's new favorite sport -- the beer-mile run, where challengers down a full brewski for every quarter-mile they complete on a track.

While he's finished many more challenging races in his life, Armstrong did not finish this one, as he stopped running after just a lap. "That was not what I expected," Armstrong said after his race ended, via Runner's World.

Armstrong might need a lesson from Chris Kimbrough, a mother of six who set the record for a beer mile at just under six-and-a-half minutes.
