Steven's Donut Run Race

You may remember that Steven is not only a talented runner, but he also tends to be quite a competitive speedy eater. Today was the West Coast version of the Krispy Kreme Challenge. Race entry was the cost of donuts and a new toy for a child. The race works like this: run 2 miles, eat 1 dozen donuts, run 2 miles.

And they are off! (And yes, Dave is dressed like a sheep...)

Steven's pacers from his half marathon - Jeffrey and Dave (sheep) - leading the race at mile one.

First into transition and slightly short of breath after running under 11 minutes for 2 miles.

 There are many strategies to eating donuts quickly.

Steven worked on cutting his lead and eventually left transition before Jeff.

I just finished telling Jeffrey what a good job he was doing. "Terrible, Charisa!" was his reply.

Gutting it out.

Down the home stretch and Steven was behind. The race for 4th place was on!

Oh yeah! All that sprinting and I'm happy to report there was no puking!

Happy Finishers. 
Who will not be eating donuts again for a very, VERY long time.

Winner, winner chicken dinner!
