Krispy Kreme Run in Raleigh

Eek! This morning was early! Up at five and ready to leave for the Krispy Kreme Run in Raleigh. :) It was a bit of a drive, plus I still had to pick up my race packet! But, I love the excitement and spirit that comes with a race so I think that helped pull me out of my warm bed. :p

Two of my sisters ran it with me and a couple friends which made it a blast!

I chickened out with the challenger part (2400 calories, 5 miles, 1 hr). ha! Just the thought of running 2.5 miles, eating 12 doughnuts and then running 2.5 more miles makes my stomach turn!

So, I just went for the run and had fun. :p If my memory is right it's 3 minutes faster than last year! My running time today totaled in ~ 42 minutes. :)

The largest amount raised so far (9th annual Krispy Kreme run) - almost $200,000!

The little girl, Ashley, holding the big check (right side) is cancer free from treatment she received at the NC Children's Hospital. Praise God!

A visit to the Apple store afterwards! Totally in <3 w/ this place.

Organic chocolate giveaway and review coming up on Monday for Valentine's Day! See you then. :)

Are you a road racer? 

What is your biggest tip for race day? (mine is hydrate the day before!) 

Are you an Apple fan or a PC user? 

Do you like doughnuts? :)

Ugh, I cannot imagine running on 12 doughnuts! Yuck! But it sounds like a great race besides -- nice job!

Way to go. There is no way I would do the challenge. My stomach would be in so much pain!

Thanks for stopping by [a traveling Wife].

You have such a terrific blog! I can't believe people actually can eat 12 donuts and run! (I don't think I can even eat 12!) Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I'll have to keep popping back over here to for running inspiration.

Yeah, I don't think I could do that challenge either! Sounds like a fun time though, for a great cause! And congrats on a great race!

I love eating, but there is no way I could eat 12 doughnuts in a row...and then run off of it. Absolutely nuts!

I can, however, see this being something my husband would love haha.
