it was an informal but fun 'race'. you could be a "challenger", run a two-mile loop, eat six donuts, and run the two-mile loop again; or you could be a "casual" runner and eat 0-5 donuts in between the loops. my competitiveness (and hard-headedness) signed us up for the challenger division.
josh and i ran together for the first loop and i just barely beat him to the donut table. he's a fast eater and took off for his second loop when i was only halfway through my donuts.
i attempted dipping my donuts in water, but that was entirely too disgusting. i stacked a couple, smushed them, and forced myself to eat them 'fast'. the urge to puke was stronger while eating them than while running.
|a good method|
i'm pretty sure this was my first negative split race ever, go figure. donuts clearly make for good fueling.
surprisingly i didn't feel like puking until the last short but steep hill, but my donuts held it together. i almost caught back up to josh - he finished a few seconds in front of me for probably 5th place male 'challenger'.
i finished 2nd place female in the 'challenger' division; maybe 3rd overall? it was hard to tell.

donut run (1/15): 4 miles, 31:46 (avg pace 7:56), 37*
i stopped my watch for the eating part... so who knows what my "race" time was. this definitely counts as a pr.
