    I eat too much and regret it half way into my run
    During race day I eat light and not in the 3 hours before the race

    I just wanted to know what everyone eats before a run. I usually eat like half of a bagel or something.

    You've come a long way young padawan. Youre still beating runner2010 at least.

    I dont like eating before I run, so I usually just pig out when I get done.

    But my coach makes me eat bananas,pb'j and granola bars =/ then I have to drink at least half of my gatorade.

    Not soon before, just not to run on an empty stomach. If you're stomach is too empty you can also get cramps.

    Before a race I didn't eat much.

    My muscles started violently shaking near the finish line.

    It could have also been that I pushed too hard.

    I also used to get dizzy. Now I make sure that I eat well, and I seem to be doing fine.

    before my indoor meets which were usually saturdays (my race would start at like 11) i would eat a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese and a glass of oj at like 645. and for xc and spring track, when my races were at 330ish, i would eat a bagel and fruit for lunch, then a granola bar on the way to the meet. i dont do well with alot of food in my stomach..

    but my favorite time to run is in the early evening so i havent eaten alot in a long time before the run...ill have a granola bar or something like an hour before and then ill come home and have dinner. but the worst pre-run food is anything greasy...ughh i feel like im gonna puke just thinking of it.
