baked goods and running ...

As you may have figured out by now, I have a slight obsession with baked goods. Cupcakes are my best friends. I've never met a pie that I didn't like. And there may have been a time or two where I ate a half dozen donuts in a single day. Oh, and there was that time, I fueled myself for an entire day on Christmas cookies. A calorie is a calorie, right?

Fortunately, I might also have a slight obsession with running. It usually cancels out all of the baked goods.

But now, after what feels like an eternity of enjoying my obsessions individually, I have been given the opportunity to combine my two loves, because I just registered for this 5K ...

Seriously, this might be the best idea ever. Each racer will be given the opportunity to eat munchkin donut holes throughout the race. Upon completion of the race each racer will receive a box of Dunkin Donut Munchkins. Donut eating during the race IS optional (Note: Only optional to the weak.)

And look at all the perks:
  • Signature Dunkin Donut Munchkin Run race T-shirt
  • A certificate for a full 25 count box of Dunkin Donut Munchkins
  • Dunkin Donut 99 cent refillable Coffee Cup
  • Dunkin Donut Coffees at the finish line
  • Dunkin Donut Hot Chocolate
  • Post-Race beverages
  • Great Swag-Bag with a variety of coupons and certificates
  • GOT MILK - Refuel with Chocolate Milk Lanyard
  • Prizes for age group winners
  • Prizes raffled off at end of race for all racers
  • The chance to say you participated in the first-ever DUNKIN DONUT MUNCHKIN RUN!
  • You’re helping a phenomenal cause.
ALL FOR $15!

I seriously CANNOT wait. So, if you are in the Richmond area, you should totally check it out. For more information and to register click HERE.

Note: I was not asked to post about this event. I just think it will be a super fun event with the proceeds going to a great cause, ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation.

Okay, at first I thought this was going to be that run where you have to eat a full dozen donuts in the middle. That would be brutal. This sounds fun though! And yummy. :)

Holy crap, that sounds awesome!

I actually tried to convince my running buddy to run our weekend long run to the local farm, get cider donuts, then run back. He didn't seem to understand.

Seriously, I need to move. What a fun 5k for a great cause. And, I would eat donut holes during the run, you bet.

I'm pretty obsessed with baked goods at the moment - but the making, not the eating. Currently I have 4 batches of cupcakes, a batch of caramel brownies and triple choc cookies in my kitchen. Thank goodness I have a house full of males who have good metabolisms.
