BB Training Week 8: Eating before the race

Posted at 7:35 AM, May 08, 2016

Runners, especially new runners may have some anxiety on what they should eat the morning of the BolderBOULDER.

Skechers Performance GOelite athlete, Patrick Rizzo says a good rule of thumb is to eat a well balance light meal three hours before you run. This could be something like a cup of coffee, oatmeal with some peanut butter, a glass of orange juice and a banana.

Staying hydrated is always important, don’t skimp on the water the days leading up to a race.

The night before the BolderBOULDER, make sure you keep it normal. Eat a meal slightly higher in carbs but one you know your body will tolerate well.
