March 01, 2019

With the NHRMC Wilmington Marathon coming up, we asked wellness dietician Ana Evans for some tips about what to eat and drink leading up to running a marathon. 

Here are her recommendations: 

-Increase calories in the weeks leading up to the race 

-Add in plenty of healthy fats

-Eat lots of lean protein 

-Don't try anything new right before the race
