Get up early
Lace up my sneakers
Drive downtown to my alma mater (Go Pack!)
Run 2.5 miles with 7200 people in costumes, grocery carts and God knows what
Then run 2.5 miles back
Yup. You read that right. And guess what? I’m not the crazy one. The crazy ones that will eat the whole dozen and run all in under an hour (::cough:: Laura Case ::cough::).
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Krispy Kreme Challenge.
I have done this for 3 years (last year I bailed due to weather). I did it pregnant with Landon and I will do it pregnant again. Like a mother effin boss.
I have never puked or been grossed out. It is an experience because anything goes. Strollers, dogs, gorilla suits, you name it.
This race started with a handful of friends on a dare years ago and now sells out months in advance with a cap of 7200 this year. They have multiple Krispy Kremes in the state cooking for the race. Oh and the best part is all the proceeds go to the Duke Children’s Hospital. So yeah awesome!
So who is coming next year?
