It's that time again when we start to go in races and take long walks. For those of you new to this forum, my pre-walk fuel is peanut butter and jam on half a bagel. I take water with me on really long walks, and homemade energy bars. My recovery fuel is a banana and a Vega smoothie. During races, I go as light as I can. Water and Gatorade are provided. Some good advice I got from a woman doctor who did marathons was take an Imodium before your race - for obvious reasons. Here's some good advice from Runner's World. www.runnersworld.com/nutrition-runne rs /right-stuff?cm_mmc=NL-Nutrition-_-1R>287968-_-05092013-_-Five-Prerace-Nut ri tion-Mistakes What works for you?
