Amway Grand Hotel vs. JW Marriott in Grand Rapids

My Favorite Pre-Run Foods

One aspect of running that took some trial and error was figuring out what I could eat before a run! Making sure I had the right fuel that wouldn't upset my stomach was super important. Here are a look at some of my favorite pre-run foods!

But wait, there's more! Enter for your chance to win a sample pack of 15 granola bars from KIND Snacks!

+Cara Goldsbury I will continue to run through the summer heat (just like I did in the winter snow!) Thankfully I don't have any big races to train for, so the mileage won't be too high. Key is getting out on the road EARLY, before the heat comes!

Introduction

Over four years ago, I began my running journey and have never looked back. I have completed multiple 5K, 10K, half marathon, 25K and marathon races, including the multi-day 48.6 mile Dopey Challenge. I enjoy local races in my home state of Michigan, yet my favorite races are the magical runDisney events. I adore the running community and enjoy sharing my passion for running with others, encouraging everyone on their running journey.


A planner at heart, I enjoy traveling with my husband, experiencing the beauty and luxury of America first hand. My favorite locations include Disney destinations, but I have a goal of visiting every state and experiencing all they have to offer. With an interest in photography, I try to find ways to capture each memory to cherish forever.

I am co-author of a book that combines two of my passions, running and Disney! Magical Miles: The Runner’s Guide to Walt Disney World is a tour book that guides families through all aspects of a runDisney event, including resorts, restaurants, the races and more!

I have a Masters Degree in Educational Technology, but I am a lifelong student. I enjoy keeping up on the latest articles, books and podcasts relating to education and technology, as well as social media and blogging.
