Stick with your regular routine to avoid GI issues on race day. You should have been 'practicing' with your race day nutrition (consumables during the race) during your long runs in training, so that shouldn't be a factor.
Avoid fiber the day before the race - for obvious reasons. Stick with easy digestible carbs (starchy) - rice, pasta, basic breads (bagels, etc) the night before.
Your best best is to eat as normally as possible up until the day before the race, then add a few extra calories of those starchy easily digestible carbs. You'll do GREAT!
I've got my 3rd 1/2 Marathon coming up on Saturday, and I'm soooooooooo excited! Just hoping the weather cools down a bit before then!
