Krispy Kreme Challenge In The Books

I'm back home from the Krispy Kreme Challenge. 2400 800 calories. 12 3 donuts. 4 miles. 1 hour.

For several hours after the race, I felt awful. Thank goodness yarbiedoll drove back to Greensboro -- I just slept. If you're thinking of complaining that I didn't complete the challenge, I don't want to hear it unless you've progressed farther in the challenge than I have. I don't care how hard you might think it is, it's harder.

ESPN was there, with someone running, and he interviewed me a little bit just before the finish. I think they said their coverage of this is going to be on SportsCenter on the 22nd.

I've already got some ideas about how to do it better next year. I think with a little more training, I'll be able to complete the full challenge next time.

My hat is off to you, sir! You did better than I could ever do. I've seen the previous two runs and know that more people get sick than complete the whole challenge.

Hope you're feeling better now.

Krispy Kreme donuts are the ultimate Non-Jogging food, I think. Either that or a vat of grease. Either way, they just don't seem to mesh. 3 KK donuts, even if you're NOT jogging, would make my guts roil. I can't imagine what it would do if I were attempting to jog my asthmatic butt around at the same time...

You're still my hero for participating. Maybe we can do it together next year.
