This is Runnovation.

Racers need carbohydrates to run, but emerging trends suggest incorporating more carbohydrates into your diet a couple of days before a race, instead of loading up on pasta the night prior. If a pasta meal is part of your pre-race ritual, consider enjoying it two nights out from an event, or even for lunch the day before. Ideally, your pre-race meal should be on the lighter side and include a mix of easy to digest carbohydrates and protein, like the salmon and quinoa (pictured). Pay attention to nutrition as you train so you know what works best come race day.
