2 Beers, 5 Love Locals, and 3 Things To Do

Peaks and Pints is closed today for one day of rest and family time. We’ll reopen tomorrow, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for to-go sales from our 13-door craft cooler, growler fills, take-out food and a special to-go beer flight. In addition, we’d like to give a few more shout-outs to awesome people offering help and relief during the self-quarantining and sheltering in place. Be well everyone!

If you are a 5th grader or if you don’t know anything about the sun or if you are completely bored, then YOU are Bryan Johnson’s intended audience for this lesson. …

Halley Knigge’s Virtual Victory Runner challenge this week is to run the #𝐑𝐄𝐈𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞 – 𝐭𝐡𝐞 #𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐞, which means plot out a teeny weeny quarantine course, and run yourself a mile.

𝐕𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐕𝐢𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐲 𝐑𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞 𝟓: 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐧𝐝-𝐚-𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐫𝐮𝐧.⁣ ⁣ Oh, my heart. This week’s challenge was to make a sign, run it to a friend’s house and tell them (from an appropriate distance) that you miss them. I spent 14.7 miles last weekend visiting nine friends, and I tell you, it gave me life. I miss you all!!⁣ ⁣ Swipe through for a lovefest from Fircrest, Tacoma, Orting, Vancouver (WA) and Portland, with additional photo credits to @berggirl, @melerrez and Karen Shreve.⁣ ⁣ As a reminder, anyone can be a Virtual Victory Runner (or biker! or walker!). There are no rules, only guidelines:⁣ ⁣ 1. Anyone can join, and it doesn’t matter if you miss a week or two (or seven).⁣⁣ 2. I’ll drop a new challenge every Sunday. They will be weird. This is not a performance-based running club.⁣⁣ 3. Complete the challenge within the week and tag me and #virtualvictoryrunners with the photographic proof.⁣⁣ 4. Have fun!⁣⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐞𝐞𝐤’𝐬 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞: 𝗪𝐞’𝐫𝐞 𝐠𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐞𝐞𝐤’𝐬 #𝐑𝐄𝐈𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞 – 𝐭𝐡𝐞 #𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐞. Plot out a teeny weeny quarantine course, and run yourself a mile. (HIGHLY recommend mapping your loop and doing the lap math – my GPS was really confused by my backyard laps and I ended up running nearly two miles trying to get to one in my watch.) Report back here with the photo proof, and don’t forget to tag #virtualvictoryrunners! #reiemployee⁣ #runhappy #runnersofinstagram #runnersofinstagram #orcarunning #thesocialdistancerun
