    Race gives new meaning to beer run

    SUAMICO, Wis. - Only in Wisconsin do beer and exercise mix. Several hundred people laced up Sunday morning for a two-mile charity race in which suds were the 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.

    "My kids are running it, so hopefully they're already at the finish line and I'll see them in an hour or so," said racer Doug Burmeister. "You know, there's a lot of beer stops."

    The race has raised more than $350,000 for local charities since its inception.

    Beer Belly veteran Mike Marin said this is one workout he can really get into.

    "This way the wife allows me to have a couple of beers because you're doing something," he said. "A little exercise, you kill two birds with one stone."
