Ten minute beer mile

Status: Incomplete (unattempted)
started: June 2007
duration: 4058 days thus far

Following the Kingston rules...

Each competitor drinks four cans of beer and runs four laps on a track (Start - beer/lap, beer/lap, beer/lap, beer/lap - finish). The world record is 5:40, and anything under 10 minutes is a very acceptable time.

Eat lower on the food chain

Status: I'm getting better at it
started: November 2006
duration: 4255 days thus far

Increasing the amount of food that comes through multiple steps of a food web is a way for you to be less taxing on the world's food production systems and ultimately on the environment. This doesn't mean that I'm a vegetarian by any means but it does mean that I intend to not solely rely on meat to fulfill my protein requirements.

Limit my processed sugar intake

Status: Complete
started: April 2005
ended: June 2005
duration: took 73 days to complete

Did a thorough cost-benefit analysis of the amount of highly processed simple sugars consumed these days by the average person. I decided that I should try to eliminate processed simple sugars (glucose and sucrose) from my diet. Results were great and I felt like I had much more energy. I eventually started consuming some sugars after taking more than 60 days completely off.

When I began a strict training schedule I realized that simple carbohydrates do have their place and I now consume a considerable amount compared with my cold-turkey days. I try to limit simple sugar consumption to times that my body demands blood glycogen.

Taste 100 different kinds of beer

Status: Complete
started: April 2004
ended: October 2009
duration: took 2017 days to complete

The second 100 will take approximately "a lot longer" than the first 100 because it becomes harder and harder to find new beers to try. That combined with the fact that normally I'd rather drink red wine than beer now add up to a situation that doesn't result in my sampling hundreds of beers each year.
