Everyone is different - experimentation is the key. After many failed attempts (with some humorous and not so humorous results), a PB&J sandwich on WW bread works wonders for me. All washed down with a large coffee.

Then I wait for about an hour before heading out...

I always eat a banana before I go out. I got very hungry during my workout this weekend so I'm going to try and have some peanut butter or something with protein as well to see if that helps keep my energy up. Otherwise, I'm going to have to pack something to have during my long runs.

My favorite before run breakfast is a glass of water. I flour tortilla with 1tbsp of peanut butter and a 1/2 banana sliced and rolled up. It's perfect. Not to heavy and a nice combo of carbs and protein.

Bananas are great. They are slow releasing carbohydrates, so they keep you energized throughout the run, instead of just at the beginning. Plus my daughter loves them too, so the other half doesn't go to waste!!

I don't have a colon so I need something with the right combo of electrolytes and energy. I personally need H2O, potassium, salt, protein and a LITTLE complex carbs. I'll scramble an egg with salt, glass of water and 1/2 a banana then wait a 1/2 hour to run. Natural peanut butter (with salt) on 1/2 a whole grain english muffin will work in a pinch too. Everyone is different tho.

I'm experimenting myself right now. I've found that I need some protein, either a string cheese or a banana and 1 T. of Peanut butter.

I grab a yogurt before heading out the door.

One of my friends here on spark people uses a glass of V8 juice.

Everyone is different -- try experimenting with different things, and keep the ones that work.

I have a banana and 12 almonds (plain)... then my real breakfast after the run. Sometimes I'll just do a 1/2 banana, it all depends on how big they are.

Banana and 1/2 bagel with natural peanut butter or just a nice 16 oz drink of Accelerade (powder only the stuff in the bottle is nasty).

HAPPY RUNNING!

I have Fiber One in the morning. Less than the serving size with skim milk helps me feel great, especially when I'm to exercise first thing in the a.m.

I don't have a Doc ok to run yet, but I don't generally like to eat when I get up, and when I know I won't be able to get something to eat until much later (like when I have an early morning class that lasts 3 hours, lol) I grab a slimfast, a fiberone bar, or some almonds for a light breakfast. My favorite is the Blue Diamond Vanilla flavor almonds. Dry roasted with natural sugars, flavor, and a bit of salt. The also have Cinnamon Brown sugar and Sea Salt flavors that come in a recloseable container that fits pretty well in a glove compartment or a backpack.

Well, even though I don't really like them, a banana seems to work well for me. I like to eat one with a tablespoon of natural peanut butter and a glass of water.
If I really, really don't want to eat, I drink an FRS energy drink.

On the weekends I like to get up & do my running without eating first, but this weekend I felt a little woozy.... any tips on a light breakfast I can eat and run shortly after? I hate to eat a whole meal and then run, I feel too full & sluggish.

So what do others fuel up on before a morning run?
