*The first runner, Auburn Staples, took only about 8 minutes to run the first two miles. He dunked his doughnuts in water and stuffed them in his mouth, his cheeks pudgy with sugary dough.*

Staples, an N.C. State senior, finished his dozen in about seven minutes and sprinted back down Peace Street. Standing 6 feet and weighing 141 pounds, Staples finished first, in 24 minutes, 31 seconds, beating his time last year by more than six minutes.

Wow. Two 4 minute miles, down a dozen donuts and follow it up with 2 sub 5-minute miles. Not too shabby.
