Top Nutrition Tips for Marathon Runners

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Keep your muscles happy and hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Before long runs stick with water. During long runs alternate between water and sports drinks. Continue to hydrate after you’ve finished your run and assess fluid status through urine color. Ideally, your urine should be pale yellow (like diluted lemonade), not cloudy or dark (like apple juice).
