A tablespoon of Chia seeds that I've soaked in a cup of water overnight then blended, and a half a banana.

I usually have a large bowl of oatmeal with berries, a cup of dandelion tea and sometimes will also have a piece of toast with peanut butter depending on how long the run is.

During my run, gels and lots of water.

Live long and prosper

Oatmeal & 2 large glasses of water about 1.5-2 hours before and then 3 chomps and small drinks of water 10 or 15 minutes before. However..today I am meeting my son and his family for lunch before my long run so..I will be having something light and I'm not sure what that will be yet.

I usually eat before a long run. If it's in the morning, then I'll have oatmeal with maple syrup and either a banana or blueberries. If it's an evening run, then I'll make sure my lunch isn't something that will cause gastric upset - a veggie sub (without the jalpenos), and then I'll have a light snack about an hour before such as a granola bar or a banana.

I run first thing in the morning in a very hot and humid climate, so I usually go with just water. Sometimes I eat a handful or two of dry cereal.

It's been such long time since I have gone for a real long run. I don't even remember what I use to eat.

It's all the same for me. 10 miles, 20 miles, 30 miles. I eat the same before I run. I just take water for more than 19 miles. :)

Each of is an athlete, some are just in training.
