TIMER Question

Hi Everyone.

I've looked through some of the older posts re: timer delay function, and I have used one of those posts as a base to what I have implemented. The problem is, when I run the delay function in a loop to test, it runs for about one second then it stops (crashes?).
From what I've read so far, my set up should be a free running 16bit counter.

Can anyone see what the problem is.

      TIM_TimeBaseInitTypeDef TIM_TimeBaseStructure;
      RCC_APB1PeriphClockCmd(RCC_APB1Periph_TIM2, ENABLE);

      TIM_TimeBaseStructure.TIM_Prescaler = 0x0;
      TIM_TimeBaseStructure.TIM_Period = 0xFFFF;
      TIM_TimeBaseStructure.TIM_ClockDivision = 0x0;
      TIM_TimeBaseStructure.TIM_CounterMode = TIM_CounterMode_Up;
      TIM_TimeBaseInit(TIM2, &TIM_TimeBaseStructure);

      TIM_Cmd(TIM2, ENABLE);

   GPIOC->BRR  = GPIO_Pin_11;
   GPIOC->BSRR = GPIO_Pin_11;
void delay(uint16_t ticks)
  uint16_t start = TIM2->CNT;
  do { } while((TIM2->CNT - start) < ticks);
