8 hr Tag Team - Nutritional and other advice please
So, my wife and I are going to try our first 8hr Tag Team race and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what and when to eat (before, during and after). We have been doing some 24 hr races (5+ member teams) and weeknight races, so I am confident in our skills and fitness, so I don't need advice like "make sure you are training x times per week" etc. but I'm not really sure what to eat.
My gut feeling is to have carbs for breakfast like oatmeal or bagels. What about yogurt and granola? I was thinking that we would try to eat a bunch of fruit during the race, but I'm not really too sure about that. Actually I'm not really sure about any of it.
Also if you have any other tips for tag team 8 hr races, feel free to throw them in.
