GU Energy Labs is proud to support the Berkeley Half Marathon. (After all, our headquarters are located right on the course!) Here are some tips for making sure you’re giving your body what it needs to perform at its best on race day.
Planning what to eat during a race can be overwhelming. With so many variables, it’s hard to determine what the “right” answer is for you. When deciding what to eat and drink, we think it’s helpful to break it down by looking at the nutrients your body needs.
A successful nutrition plan takes into account the amount of calories your system can handle in an hour, and it should also factor in your body’s need for electrolytes, amino acids, water, and protein.
