Listen to this episode if you need some tips on what to eat in the crucial hours just before a big race: The host duo dishes on the dos and don’ts of pre-race meals with nutritionist Jenn Giles. Highlights include: 

  • whether carbo-loading the night before a race is still a thing;

  • when, exactly, to eat your pre-race dinner; and,

  • ideas for race-day breakfast beyond bagels and bananas. 

The ladies also answer nutrition questions from mother runners and share their go-to pre-race meals. First, though, hosts Dimity and Sarah WF catch up on life lately—including the rapidly-approaching start of school and fall sports.
