This is the NYTimes, but I want to believe! http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/12/02/the-close-ties-between-exercise-and-beer/?ref=health&_r=1 "Now two new studies suggest that exercise may well influence when and how much people drink. Drinking may even affect whether people exercise, and, the findings suggest, the interplay between exercise and alcohol could be a good thing." " EXERCISE AND BEER CLOSELY LINKED - Researchers at Penn state have published a study that finds “an unequivocal correlation between exercising on any given day and subsequently drinking.” The relationship “held true throughout all seasons of the year and whether someone was a man or a woman, a collegian or a retiree. Age and gender did not affect the results.” Glenn and I regularly meet for a drink (usually whiskey or wine rather than beer, but still) after a Rippetoe style lifting session. It helps with recovery and makes us more likely to do both activities again. I’m guessing there me be some similar activities at Bullets & Bourbon this weekend. by Ben Barton "
