Fueling up!

One of the most beautiful parts of prepping for race day is carbo loading! How can you not love a hobby that gives you an excuse to consume massive amounts of carbs?

On Friday night Taber and I got some friends to watch our kids so we could go on a pre-race date. We picked up our packets, hit the Running Room for some last minute gear, bought a new camera that was small enough to carry during the race and fueled up on carbs at Noodles and Company.
Not only did we both order large bowls of the oh so delcious Penne Rosa with Parmesean chicken, but we decided to have them throw in a bowl of mac and cheese just for good measure.

And just in case that wasn't enough, on the morning of the race we woke up at 5:30 a.m. to pack in one last "power meal." My favorite for long runs, peanut butter, jelly and banana on wheat bread. Anyone else have any favorite power foods for their long runs? Please feel free to share!
