Donuts at Memorial Park
|Krispy Kreme Visits Memorial Park|
You never know what a day will bring! Like I do almost every day, I was running the three mile loop at Memorial Park when I saw something I've never seen before - a Krispy Kreme donut bus. Was I dreaming? I haven't had a Krispy Kreme donut since I visited Paddington Station in London over a year ago. Unbelievably, we don't have a store in Houston.
I stopped to find out that Krispy Kreme is on a 75th birthday tour and was giving away free donuts. I ran around the loop a couple more times and then I stopped for a donut and some Krispy Kreme lip balm, too.
I stood there eating my donut and wondering if I should ask someone to take my photo so that I could put it on my blog. That's when a Houston Chronicle photographer, Johnny Hanson, asked if he could take my picture and even took a picture of me with my camera for my blog. Note: looks like I didn't make the paper, but that's okay.
After eating the donut, I ran 2 more miles. In case you're wondering about mixing running and donuts, I felt fine. Actually, this is the second time I've eaten a donut and run a couple more miles. The first time was after a 10K race. Maybe I'll start packing donuts instead of energy gels!
