Back when I was first getting into running, I experienced a situation not unlike the scene from The Office where Michael hosts a “fun run” to raise money out of guilt for hitting Meredith with his car and subsequently overloads on carbs before the race. I had lost track of the day and hadn’t had time to eat more than breakfast earlier that morning. As a result, I panic-ate an entire bowl of pasta before heading out for my usual late-afternoon run.
Less than a mile in, I realized what a horrible mistake I’d made.
I learned the hard way how important it was to research how my meals impact my running. Learn from both Michael Scott’s and my mistake by making sure a your next big race isn’t ruined by poor eating habits.
