Pre-Race Fuel

Today is race day and it's not snowing! I was a little worried yesterday when it was raining, but today we woke up to a tiny bit of blue sky and no moisture in the air. Fingers crossed it stays this way. You may think it's odd that I'm worried about snow, but since the two races I've completed this spring have been in snow, I think I'm justified.

We are running the 10km in this race, and my goal is to break 50 minutes. In order to fuel up for the race, I made my pre-race go-to meal: oatmeal. Every runner is different in how they fuel up, but we are all the same in that when we find something that works, we stick to it.

In the bowl:
1/2 cup Instant Oats
1 tbsp PB
1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
1 tsp Maple Syrup
1/4 cup milk

1 apple on the side

On that note, I better go get ready so I'm not late for the race!
