Copywriter/funnyperson Claire Wyckoff's single topic Tumblr is dedicated to running routes that look... strangely familiar for some reason. Not sure what it is, but the general shape of them just reminds me of something. Can't put my finger on it though. Oh well!

BBC presenter Lindsey Russell is planning to run across the Irish sea from Donaghadee in Northern Ireland and Portpatrick in Scotland. The run will benefit Sport Relief, a UK charity that raises money through sports related events. 

This specially made floating hamster wheel is nicknamed "Bobby".

grandma finishes beer mile in 20 minutes

81 year old Elvira Montes didn't just complete the annual Flotrack Beer Mile, she dominated it. The grandmother of three completed her beer mile, which requires runners to chug a 12 oz beer every quarter mile, in 20 minutes and 23 seconds, beating her 47 year old daughter by 50 seconds. 

Montes was happy to finish, but wants to up her chug speed in order to try to beat her time next year: "I should have been a little faster. I tried to drink the first one really fast but I couldn’t. The second one went down really smooth; the third, even better. The fourth was alright."

But the coolest thing about Montes? She doesn't even like beer. This badass grandma prefers scotch. Cheers to you Elvira Montes, and congrats on a great finish time. I know I couldn't beat it.

Athletes from competing teams helping one another finish the race? Yeah, maybe this world isn't so terrible after all. Sometimes.
