It was a super cold morning. So cold that I thought my hands would freeze without gloves. But the sun was out, there was NO snow and it was a race where you could eat donuts. Little did I know that I would soon hate glazed Krispy Kreme donuts very much.
The race took place in Ames, Iowa. It was called the Donut Run. You ran about 1K to a donut table and had to eat as many donuts as you could stomach. Every time you got an entire donut down you got a sticker on your bib and at least 30 seconds taken off your final time. Amy and I managed 5 donuts each. It was so gross. Some guys ate 20 donuts.
It was a fun, organized, different race. We finished it under 40 minutes with the 5 stops. Neither of us wanted anything to eat for hours after.
I ran another 3 miles after the race to help burn off all the donuts. It didn't help much as I felt gross almost all day. Results are here: Donut Run results Pictures are below:
