The Krispy Kreme Challenge came to town, and I, never running away from a challenge, of course had to participate. The event consisted of running two miles to Krispy Kreme, eating one dozen full-size donuts, and then running two miles back to the finish, all within one hour. The challenge got even more difficult in that there was also another race in town on that day--the Dizzy Fifties in which I was already registered. This problem was easily solved when Rob suggested that we had time to complete both events if we started the Dizzy 50k by ruuning the first 6 miles of the course, jumped in the car and drove down to the Krispy Kreme Challenge, completed it, drove back up to Dizzy, and then finished the 50k. The Dizzy Donut proved to be a long, full day.
