Your donuts make me go nuts
So tomorrow I am continuing a tradition. Tomorrow I will
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?

Good luck and have fun tomorrow! I haven’t done this in a few years – maybe time to get back up there and eat some donuts! Last time I ran it there was a “dick in a donut box” guy!
One of my college friends did it on crutches one year. BAMF
Ok, now you’re just making the rest of us look bad.

Totally rockstar amazeballs, as per the usual lady.
How many donuts do you eat?
I have eaten 4. It really didn’t bother me. I get hungry mid run anyway 🙂
I feel like perhaps I could get into running if Krispy Kremes were involved. Can’t wait to hear all about it.
OMG!!! As an avid runner who has done various races this is one my husband and I have said is a definite for our running bucket list!!! Maybe next year is our year! I LOVE that you do this an even more that you do it with a baby bun in your mama oven!!!!! Have a few donuts for me!! Good luck!
YES! Every February…cmon!
I’ll make the call on next year depending on how many times I puke this year.
What an interesting concept!
That sounds awesome!! I wish there was something like that around here – I would sign up in a heartbeat.
It is definitely unique. ROAD TRIP
I am running 6 miles tomorrow with no donuts. Le sigh.
You can always go buy some!
Now those are some guilt-free donuts. Eat an extra one for me.
well kinda…the first 3 are maybe 🙂
The only part that grosses me out is dodging the puke on the way back. I have done the race twice (2009 and 2010) and wasn’t quite ready to get back in the game this year. My highest donut count was 6. I bow down to Laura and her ability to eat the dozen.
i have seen very few piles but I was a lot faster. Beat most of the people still eating. Tomorrow will be the test.
Have fun!! I’m super bummed I didn’t registration in time this year … darn procrastination! Hopefully the road kill from last year won’t be there to stench up the first part 🙂
awww gonna miss you!
I remember when this started. i graduated in summer 05 (as a super senior). So much fun… i’m going to have to make it back one day and do this!
