Plenty of athletes load up on carbs the night before a big run.

But eating six cupcakes just minutes before starting a 5K? Perhaps not a great plan, but that was what participants did Saturday morning at Ritter Park in the first of what is expected to be an annual Cupcake Run, sponsored by Paula Vega Cakes, to raise money for the Hoops Family Children's Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital.
