The Krispy Kreme Doughnut Dash was a huge success!!!! There were over 700 runners! It was cold but not near as cold or damp as we were expecting which was wonderful. The boys had a blast and even got to take some new Nike running shoes on a trial run along with timing watches. They were so excited and all said the shoes were incredible! How cool is that to be able to actually do a real race in the shoes before you buy them! Morgan actually needs new sneakers and with Elijah running track now I’m sure these shoes are much better than the ones he’s been running in.
The great thing about being one of the event photographers is that I can get lots of shots of my boys for blogging while on the job! You can see all the photos at www.k2d2fun.shutterfly.com . I took the Start/Finish and Family Fun Event photos and Julia took the Doughnut Eating and Awards. It got crazy busy at times with large groups finishing the race that I took photos of runners then would run around shooting them with their doughnut medals then back to the finish line to get runners and so on back and forth! Crazy hectic but oh so fun!
The boys did great competing and completed as Challengers running the 2 miles, eating then running 2 miles back!! Elijah was the 8th runner to arrive at Railroad Park but the eating really slowed him down. He finished 12th place in the 15-19 year old group was overall 129th with a gun time of 50:24! Joseph had to take an emergency restroom break and Morgan didn’t want to leave him at the park all alone so he stayed with him making sure he came out safely and onto the right path back. What an awesome big brother!! So even with an incredibly long delay in running back Morgan finished in 23rd place for the under 14 year olds was 280 overall with a 1:04:43 time and Joseph finished in 24th place with a 284 overall at 1:05:03 time. Don’t forget there were just over 700 casual and challenger runners. So proud of all my boys!!!
