since i started running this year, i have stuck with what i eat before my workouts. protein shake and bar.
I think i will pickup the banana idea's.

Short Race: nothing for me...
Long Race (13.1Miles) - Banana (always!), yogurt and granola or oatmeal with brown sugar. I like a coffee too! All of this at least 2 hours before the start... so I have time for the ladies!
To you, racer sparkfriends, have a great run this week-end!!!!
"A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water."
When facing resistance, think "softness" and let go.
Mashed banana in oatmeal with milk.....sometimes a drizzle of lite maple syrup or lite chocolate syrup....and sometimes I swap a container of yogurt for the milk.

I know they say don't eat fiber before a run/race. But I always eat a high fiber healthy cereal with milk and it works great for me. I eat a lot of fiber anyway so my body it probably more used to it than someone that doesn't eat a lot of fiber.
