Running has always been a part of my life as long as I can remember I have enjoyed running and wanted to run fast. Early in my childhood I would be asked to do something and I would agree rather quickly if I could be timed. Throughout my childhood and my adolescence years running was the highlight of all my sporting events. In my adult years I have remained rather active in competitive racing. The act of racing and being involved in many charitable events help to motivate me to get out on the road.
What do you eat during long runs?
Electrolyte replacement supplement, honey organic chews, water and Gatorade
What do you eat before a race?
A cup of coffee, a slice of whole wheat toast, & 6oz Orange Juice
The week prior to a half marathon or full marathon carb loading is essential. Whole wheat pasta, and sweet potatoes are my two main foods.
How to get started?
Walk for a warm-up, then start running a minute at a time as you build on that until you can run without stopping.
