    Pre-Race Meals

    Post you favorites. I'm looking for ideas and recomendations for this season.

    Thanks

    Two packets' worth of instant cream of wheat, with about two tablespoons honey, roughly 3.5 hours before race time.

    If I am doing a "serious" warmup, I take a gel about 30 minutes before race time, then do my "serious" warmup, then take another gel right at the line. If no serious warmup, then just a gel right at the line.

    Thanks. That was a hard, but good read.
