I get a lot of questions about what I recommend eating before a long run or race. I hesitate recommending anything specific because I know we all have different tastes and reactions to foods. I’d hate to steer someone wrong so make sure to test out what works for you before race day.
Personally, I swear by salty carbs. The easiest way for me to get this is rice and tons of soy sauce. But you can also eat bread with butter and salt. I eat this because I’m a salty sweat-er so the added sodium helps me. I know some try to stay away from salt, but I pour it on!
For lunch I stole some of Ben’s pizza while cooking up my early dinner.
I will update everyone on the race tomorrow afternoon. If I die Ben will update you the blog and give me a proper burial at sea (read: drag my sweaty carcass into the Pacific). But, don’t forget I’m on the west coast so it won’t be until mid-afternoon. Thanks!
