Cider is delicious! Spanish ciders are also excellent, but sometimes more difficult to find. My go-to is Michigan Brut by Virtue and you should be able to find that at nearly any Jewel.

I’ve been a runner for nearly 20 years of my life, and I’ve logged around 20,000 miles in that time, on roads, grass, trails, beaches, you name it. And unlike nearly every murder mystery or episode of Law & Order, I have not once found a dead body.

Fun fact, My Cousin Vinny is actually shown in law schools because of how accurate its depiction of a criminal trial is.
