A 'Real American Hero'…

nielsenTwo-time NCAA 5000 meter champion James “The Beast” Nielson has apparently become the first person to break the five-minute barrier in the Beer Mile. For those not familiar with the rules, at the end of laps 1, 2, and 3 the runner has to down a beer. James Nielson claims to have broken the ‘world record’ for the event finishing in 4 minutes 57 seconds. A video is making the rounds. He said he trained for a year before his world record attempt. I wonder what the record is for drinking beers while watching him run the beer mile?  Maybe that’s a record I could go for!

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
