If this doesn't pump you up, I don't know what will. source.It is also going to be chilly on race morning, so creates another set of concerns. With starting temps around 32 degrees, I am actually kind of hoping they will be serving coffee at the water stops. Let's be honest, it would pair well with what they are serving at the midway point. Obviously, I want to dress in stretchy, forgiving fabrics, as I will be taking on a considerable amount of fuel during the race. But do I wear gloves? I don't want my donuts to get all fuzzy from mitten hands. That's not going to make them go down any faster. But I also need my hands to be dexterous, so they can quickly shovel the donuts into my mouth. I could always take them off as I enter the donut zone.
And as for donut eating, I'm thinking of going with multiple at a time. A smoosh and chew method if you will. Like the gentleman in the yellow neon shirt in the above video. Liquids are essential in getting them down, so I considered wearing my hydration pack, but I don't think I will because it may not fit after all those donuts. I'm going with the race provided liquids, another wild card for the day.
Sadly, the Jayhawk has come down with some form of the plague, so he will not be join me on race day. I am more than a little bummed because he was going to be my race day photog. Now you are stuck with my horrible selfie skills. Where's a GoPro when you need one?
In all honesty, it's going to be a lot of silly fun to benefit a great cause.
What's on tap for you weekend?
