New York City Marathon Tips: Pre-Race Nutrition

Sunday is fast approaching for all of you running this year’s ING New York City Marathon. Since there is probably a lot of different thoughts swirling in your minds concerning various aspects of the race, today I wanted to provide some last-minute advice for something you CAN control – your nutrition and fueling strategies.

Essentially, what my advice today boils down to is the same advice Scott and Coach Jerry have been sharing in their last few posts – “Don’t deviate from the plan” and “Trust your training up to this point”.

Furthermore, I would like to emphasis the point of PREPARATION in regards to your pre-race nutrition habits these next few days.

With those as our overarching themes for the post, I do have some advice and tips to share for those of you traveling to New York for the race, for everyone who plans on checking out the expo, as well as tips for everyone related to fueling the night before, the morning of, and during the race!
