What to Eat Before a Race

You ever wonder about those long distance runners and what they eat the night before and the morning of a big race?

Recently, a niece of mine and a coworker and his wife ran in the Deadwood Mickelson Trail Marathon.  All three avid runners and are in very good health.  My niece, who has been eating a raw diet for many years doesn’t stray from that.  However, my coworker and his wife will carb-up.

If it were me, steak and pasta would be on the menu.  But a new article published by Blue Cross Blue Shield indicates you should choose what foods work best for you.  Read more here.

And now you are just hours away from the gun.  Should you eat heavy, light, or the same breakfast you have everyday?  Runners World has a race morning breakfast tip here.

What will be your next running event?  Here is the calendar from the Sioux Falls Running Club.
