Did you run the Blue Cross Broad Street Run on Sunday morning? If so, treat yourself to a brew!

As thousands of runners chugged along and poured in past the finish line, they were awarded a finisher's medal, crafted specifically for this year's race. To top it all off, it soon began filtering through social media that the medal could potentially double as a bottle opener.

Instead of putting your medal up on the wall or framing it, hang it up next to your fridge and use it to open a cold beer or soda! Other medals simply pale in comparison to those with a second function.

Blue Cross likely hasn't started a draft for next year's medal, but this stout discovery might make some people hop out of their seats and start training for 2016.
