When it comes to distance running events, LT is the top firm in the state. The firm has several marathoners, half-marathoners, and triathletes, and during the past two years has competed in the Ragnar Relay, a 200-mile race from Chattanooga to Nashville.
But at the top of the list of LT distance athletes is Wally Irvin. He not only has strong legs, but also a strong stomach, as demonstrated in his annual participation in the Krispy Kreme Challenge in Huntsville, Alabama.
The Krispy Kreme Challenge is a duathlon of sorts in which participants run two miles through downtown Huntsville to a donut shop where they must eat one dozen donuts. They then run two miles back to the finish line.
Last Saturday, Wally competed for the second consecutive year, coming in second place!
We congratulate Wally for consuming 2,400 calories and 140 grams, sandwiched (so to speak) between two, two-mile runs.
