So I have a 12 mile race coming up in August. I know that when you start running longer distances that you need more then just water or gatorade to provide you with some necessary fuel. With that said, I really don't want to use and spend money on gels and "specialty" running snacks. But I know I need to start trying out foods while running to see what really works for me
What types of foods would you suggest as a good during run snack or what have you used in the past that you think works really well?
