KTLA reporter Wendy Burch was surrounded by beer-swilling revelers Tuesday at the annual Ironman Run-Paddle-Chug competition, during which participants run and swim one mile before chugging a six-pack of beer.
“Groups of men, and yes, a few brave women, formed rings around cases of beer,” Burch recalled later on Huffington Post.

“From my vantage point, the first beer went down easy,” she said. “That one seemed refreshing and life-affirming for some of the participants.”
