I have written about second breakfast before, but today the stars aligned. I had my usual banana and water before I rode, then I had my fastest morning commute of the year. When I got into the office the Friday Morning Goodie was Krispy Kreme donuts. I added some chocolate milk and called it a well earned recovery breakfast. I can’t afford to eat like that every morning. Well I can afford to buy the food, but not to replace all my cycling clothes if I outgrow them.
Some of you might be asking, what is Friday Morning Goodie. Well it is a tradition/benefit where I work. These days it is usually bread or muffins from Great Harvest Bread Company and sometimes it is bagels. But on the last Friday of the month it is Krispy Kreme donuts. I am not sure how many donuts are provided., but it seems to be about 1 per person and there are a little over 5,000 people working here. That is the kind of thing you get working at one of Fortune’s Best Places To Work.
By the way, if you have never had a Krispy Kreme donut, plan a trip to North Carolina. Ride the Blue Ridge Parkway and then get you some Krispy Kreme donuts. You will have earned them.
