Time to make (eat) the Donuts!

Tomorrow is the Tour de Donut in Staunton, IL.  Last year I crashed and broke my wrist (and still finished).  This year I plan to not crash, eat some donuts and have a great time.  I have a donut eating strategy but I'm not sure if I am going to eat as many as I can or just a few.   


  1. Ahhhh....you took my facebook post for tomorrow morning with your title. Good luck tomorrow!

  2. I'm thinking zero doughnuts for me. If you are eating donuts, here are some tips that my friend Anne posted as a comment on my blog. She had the overall best women's time last year so I think she is an authority on this.

    From Anne:

    Tips for anyone doing the Tour De Donut this weekend --- eat most of your donuts at the first stop. By the time you reach the second stop, the donuts have been sitting out in the heat for a bit and don't go down as well. Don't drink a lot of water even though it will be hot, this will make the donuts swell in your stomach, possibly causing a "reversal". Just take tiny sips of water at regular intervals. Eat something kind of greasy for breakfast -- McDonalds hash browns are the best pre-donut-race food. The grease seems to counter-act the sugary donuts.
