For some, the Krispy Kreme Challenge didn't end with simply running two miles, eating a dozen donuts, then running another two miles. Riding back to the paper to file a story after the race, I heard someone yell, "Hey! Joe!" Sitting with a group of friends on the patio of the Flying Saucer, hoisting a beer, was friend/one-time-kayak-babysitter/N&O colleague Carol Jenkins, who did a 2-2-2 at the Challenge.
Liz & Lauren: An unprecedented 2-12-2-12!
Then we got word via the shinny little things blog about the exploits of Liz and Lauren. "Ok," writes slt, "so there is a guy out there right now who can say he won the Krispy Kreme Challenge today; he ran and ate and ran faster than anyone else. He skipped the After Challenge, however. Liz and Lauren did not. They both ran, ate a dozen, ran, AND then came and made a dozen (earrings) at Ornamentea."
Dang! A 2-12-2-12. Look for more extensions on the KKC at the 2010 running. (For more on Liz & Lauren's donut-n-doodad adventure go here.
