Krispy Kreme run 2012

Last weekend I participated in the Krispy Kreme Challenge in Raleigh.  This is an event started a few years ago by NC State students.  You run 2 (now 2.5) miles to Krispy Kreme, eat 12 doughnuts, then run back to the NC State Belltower.  

This year the event had 7,700 runners/eaters. 

I had several friends who ate all 12 doughnuts, but that is jut not my bag.  So I participated in the "casual" division, meaning I could eat 0-12 but not be scored.  So I ate one doughnut as part of my all-day fueling strategy.  ;) 

It was a lot of fun, we started a few miles away from the start to turn it into a long run day.  Here are pictures.

My time was a respectable 36:21, or about 7 minute / mile accounting for the doughnut stop.  This put me into 10th place in the casual division.  Yay for me!  My season is complete!

The winner, who ate all the doughnuts, finished in 28 minutes.  Which is just sick on many levels.
