What should I eat before a marathon?

Pre-Marathon Meals

In an ideal sports nutrition diet, with or without a sports nutrition supplement, you should eat 2 grams of carbohydrate for every kilogram of body weight (divide your weight in pounds by 2.2) 2 hours before a marathon. Experiment with pre-run sports nutrition and your long training runs to see what works for you.
