Olympic-Caliber Donut Eater

For those of you who don't know, Brian Diemer is a local Olympic Bronze Medalist (and South Christian record holder) who won his medal in the 1984 Olympic Steeplechase event. Every year, there is a 5K race named after him here in town in which Edward & John usually run. The challenge is if you happen to beat Brian in this race, you win a donut. I have a friend who is a very good runner, and last year she gave me her donut, most likely because she was in too good of shape to be eating donuts.

Recently, the brochure came out for the 2008 5K race, and there in the bottom right hand corner, next to his records and world achievements is the world class donut eater herself! I am so honored.

Hey, I know Brian Diemer. I went to church with him at Brookside CRC for years. A very nice man. And married to a special woman. He did some wonderful landscaping for us on Chamberlain SE. But, alas, I never ran with him or ate a donut with him. So I lay no claim to fame like Jewels.

That's cool Skip & I never knew you lived on Chamberlain - a good friend of mine lives there. Small world.

Good question, Ruth! I only took a bite or 2 - just when the camera happened to be there!
