Held back a little bit on the way to the doughnut stop. I wanted to feel pretty fresh while throwing down the doughnuts. A lot of people who were not runners went out too fast and were paying for it at the doughnuts. First mile was a 7:26. Hit the dougnut stop at the half way point in a little under 11 minutes. Six doughnuts in three minutes. I used the smash method to compact them into airless mases and sipped just enough water the get them down. Came out of the doughnut stop at the 14 minute mark and spent the next 1/4 mile settling in trying to find a comfortable pace. The doughnuts had settled all the way down about halfway to the two mile mark and I picked things up tot he finish. The third mile was a 6:53. Finished uphill and didn't push it until right before the chute in an effort to make sure that the doughnuts didn't reappear. Finished at 26 on the dot.
