5 Favorite Long Run Breakfasts

Many new long-distance runners asked me what I eat on race day or the morning of a long run.  A morning pre-run meal should include a well-balanced mix of carbohydrates and protein.  Here are five of my favorite long run breakfasts that keep me fueled for so many miles.  I always drink one cup of coffee before my run, but limit myself to the one cup.

1. Reduced-calorie english muffin with peanut butter and a low-fat greek yogurt

2. Oatmeal mixed with peanut butter

3. Butter wheat or sourdough toast with scrambled eggs

4. Almond butter toast with a banana

5. Protein bar
