My new pre-race tradition
As you might’ve heard, I finished a half marathon on Saturday!
Usually before races like these, people load up on spaghetti, bread, and lots of other carb-filled meals. But for me personally, I don’t go that route.
In fact, if I ate pasta and lots of bread before a race, I would be miserable! Pasta and refined grain bread makes me feel really bloated and icky.
But I still know how to “carbo load” just in my own way. I ate oatmeal for breakfast every day last week and enjoyed brown rice and whole wheat couscous with dinner a few times.
This time, instead of a burrito, I got a “naked” grilled veggie burrito and added lettuce, pico de gallo and medium salsa.
Afterward, we went to Barnes & Noble where I enjoyed a nice decaf African Autumn tea :)
If you are a runner, tri-athlete, etc. what is your typical pre-race dinner?
