Happy New Year 2009. To get the year started off "right", I have already entered myself in my first race of the year. While its not exactly the most respectful or healthy event that I have participated in, I think it will certainly be a day of fun, laughter and challenge. Yes, I have decided to run the 5th annual Krispy Kreme Challenge here in Raleigh.
For those of you not in the know, its a recently developed 4 mile race put on by NC State students to raise money for the NC Children's Hospital. The challenge is to run two miles from the historic NC State Bell tower to the Krispy Kreme store off Peace Street in Raleigh, gorge down a dozen donuts and than run the two miles back; all in 1 hour or less. I have signed up as a Challenger which means I intend to eat the dozen. There was also an option to sign up as a Casual participant and eat less than a dozen.
I have one month to prepare. I haven't run in 6 weeks but I have done plenty of eating. This will be my day to shine or should I say - to glaze :)
