For many, running a half marathon in less than two hours is a great accomplishment. For one engineering student at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, that wasn’t enough.

Emmet Farnan, a Notre Dame senior, decided to drink one beer at every mile marker during the race.

Farnan, a former high school runner from Long Island, completed the Holy Half Marathon on April 1 by finishing one Coors Light before the race and then at every mile marker along the way. A friend of his carried the 12 beers while riding on a bike beside him.

He finished the race with a time of 1:43:42 and captured the entire race on video.

“There was no point where I thought I wouldn’t finish,” Farnan told Runners World, despite deciding to run in the race one day before. “I thought, you know, I’ll do it, but I haven’t been training properly. How do I run it without being worried about my time?”

Farnan drew inspiration from the beer mile, where runners drink a beer for every lap on a 400 meter track. However, Farnan did not follow the rules of the beer mile since Coors light does not meet the minimum 5.0% ABV and “shotgunning” (the practice of drinking out of a hole punched in the can for faster flow) a beer is not allowed. Additionally, he spit up some of the beer, which is a penalty in a beer mile.
