What is carbo loading? What is glucose and how does it affect your performance? Are you drinking enough liquids? These are some questions that you might be asking yourself if you are running a marathon. For more information, we recommend watching this quick 2-minute video. We’d love to know what carbo loaded foods you like to eat as well – don’t forget to give us feedback! Our favorites include pasta!
What’s your favorite electrolyte drink? Our personal favorite is vitamin water. We find that Gatorade is too sugary. But in the middle of the race, at that point, we are happy to just drink anything!
Also don’t eat too much the morning of, perhaps something light like a protein bar, banana or a piece of toast. What do you eat? Whatever you do, DO NOT drink coffee! It will dehydrate you!
