Are you a fan of Krispy Kreme donuts? If not, why not? They are glazed and a little piece of heaven. However, I wouldn’t call them exercise food. Students at the North Carolina State University will disagree with that.

More than 7,000 participants of the Krispy Kreme Challenge ran five miles and then inhaled a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts, all for charity. Runners take off from the North Carolina State campus, run to a nearby Krispy Kreme store, eat a dozen glazed donuts as quickly as they can and then run back to campus. According to people who've done it, the run is "miserable," but this hasn't stopped them from making it an annual event.

If you need a little inspiration to run this event next year (or run in general), check out this video:
