I found the perfect triathlon for Clydes!

Saw this on Man vs. Food the other night. It's a relay race.

http://www.doughman.org/

Basically, each leg of the relay is started with an eating contest. So it goes something like this.

Eat, run, tag teamate.
Eat, bike, tag teamate.
Eat, swim, tag teamate, etc.

What do you think, we could put together a dream team, huh!

Fairly sure we could put together a national league.

and for those that don't want to run or swim, here in Michigan we have Le Tour de Donut... 30 mile road race where you get 3 minute bonus for every donut you eat! LOL!

OK, that is cool! If it's a flat ride, that should be about 90 minutes, then if you can hold down 30 donuts, you can finish with a time of 0:00!

There's a Tour de Doughnut in Houston, Texas, as well. (I assume it's based on the other one).

Another idea on any kind of race would be to have everyone perform, then just rate them by lbs/second that they moved.

There is a run here in mass. I believe it is a 5 mile run, at 3 or 5 identified bars you must stop eat a hot dog and drink a beer and then return to your running. if you puke you are disqualified. they try to get a bunch of hot girls there to hand out the beers dogs and to cheer you on.

They should just call it the Sprint 'n' Spew.
