Imagine running 2.5 miles, eating 12 Krispy Kreme Donuts, and running 2.5 miles back in less than 1 hour.
That is called the Krispy Kreme Challenge.
Sounds terrible, right?
Well, my husband signed right up. And got a few of his friends to do it with him. And 3 of them wore spandex on bottom. Your welcome for cropping the following photo. . .
The proud competitors. We've got Rusty, Chris, My MAN Justin, and Matt. They all finished the race, but Justin was the only one who completed it in 53:57! You needed to complete the challenge in under an hour to qualify.
Race day was actually beautiful. They were calling for rain, but it held off until later that afternoon.
Jessica, Rusty's wife, and my sister were there supporting the runners!
How cute are her kids?
We were cheering from the donut eating location. There were tables and tables of donuts stacked several high!
The runners came flooding in. . .
And then I spotted my man!
He picked up some rubber gloves to wear during the donut eating so as to not dirty his hands with sugar paste and have to run back with sugar hands. I can't really blame him, it was pretty nasty. And it turns out, he wasn't the only one with that idea.
Matt chose the "donut hole" method of squishing them into a ball. Not the most strategic. . .but hey. He tried.
Justin's method was the classic Flatten a Stack.
Rusty arrived a little bit after Justin and Matt had begun eating. He dug right in and, frankly, seemed to enjoy each donut. But if you knew Rusty, you would know that man can each sugar like nobody's business.
Justin finished up, and left Matt and Rusty in the dust.
Another one of Justin's friends, and study buddy, Anthony (who we affectionally call "Tones-McGones"), showed up and got right to work on the donuts.
He needed gloves.
By the time the boys left, Jessica and I thought we should probably take some pictures as if we were competing. Thats the closest we'll ever get to the Challenge.
And Jessica's youngest cheered us on with a sign that said "You Have Never Been Cooler!"
Overall, it was a really fun morning and it was great to be able to see the boys eat all the donuts. They all did really well, and they managed to keep most of the donuts down even after the race. (and that's all I'm going to say about that.)
If you live in the area, The Krispy Kreme Challenge is worth an attempt, or just something to go watch. But be warned: You'll never look at Krispy Kreme's the same again.
Good thing I'm a Dunkin Donuts girl.
