Carb Loading For Marathons
The Livestrong Austin Marathon and Half Marathon is quickly approaching. Runners will hit the pavement Sunday to put the 26.2 mile run under their belts.
Getting across the finish line means many hours dedicated to training. Part of training often includes some healthy carb-loading meals.
Snap Kitchen shared some ideas for carb-loading meals with us on We Are Austin Mornings.
