If you are just starting out as a runner, one of the big questions might be what to eat before you hit the trail. Being too full can weigh you down and might cause you to get queasy. If you are hungry or running first thing in the morning, skipping breakfast might cause you to run out of steam or, worse yet, get dizzy.
Black Girls Run, a fabulous sisterhood of sisters who run or who would like to run but don’t know how to get started, suggests the following:
- A banana and a scoop of nut butter
- Half a bagel with jam or honey
- A handful of strawberries or blueberries
