Running a marathon is an incredible achievement for which you must train for months. Most of that training is about the running itself, but a lot hinges on your pre-race diet, as well.
The wrong food could cause you great gastrointestinal distress, even forcing multiple pit stops. Eating too much or too little can also lead to fatigue and make it hard to cross the finish line.
To avoid food-related issues, the number one rule to observe for your marathon is “nothing new on race day.”
That means that you should incorporate carb-loading and meal choice experiments right into your training regime. It is important know exactly what meal works best for you before hitting the starting line on your big day.
