A marathon is 26.2 miles, but that doesn't mean you have to run it all at once.

A man taking part in the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon, in Knoxville, Tenn., has become something of a cult hero after he took a break during the race to grab a burrito and a beer.

The man, who has been identified as Jared Nelson, grabbed the burrito from a water station that was handing out food and then took a detour into Trailhead Beer Market where he ordered a beer to wash it down.

Someone else snapped a photo of Nelson drinking what the witness says is a mimosa.

Amazingly, Nelson finished the race in six hours, six minutes. Whether or not he was still standing at the time or if he was covered in vomit is not known.

If Nelson wants to keep running, we recommend he try something like the Beer Mile, which seems to be clearly up the alley he's going to be found in sleeping one off after he keeps drinking during real marathons.
