A two-time champ

I could manage 4 miles in an hour (a very brisk walk). But I don't know about eating a dozen doughnuts too...

The 2-time Krispy Kreme Challenge champion explains how one prepares for 12 doughnuts and 4 miles in 1 hour

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama--Eric Charette has run two miles to Krispy Kreme, scarfed down a dozen doughnuts, and ran two miles back, finishing in first place.

Twice.

And did it without puking.

"I set the course record in 2011," Charette said. "For the four mile run, plus eating a dozen doughnuts, my time was 28:53. I think my donut eating split was under six minutes. Then I was the overall winner again in 2013."

Originally from Kingsford, Michigan, the 38-year-old Huntsville resident competes in 40 races a year, albeit none as gluttonous as the annual UCP Krispy Kreme Challenge, taking place this Saturday at 8 a.m. in Huntsville.
