What to Eat Before a Triathlon
My first sprint triathlon is coming up on Saturday. Your website has been amazing for me. Quick question: What type of breakfast is the best the morning of the race?

Thank you for contacting TriathaNewbie.com and thank you for the kind words regarding the website!
Great question! We suggest you eat a breakfast that’s pretty bland and high in carbs several hours before the start of your triathlon. Grab a bowl of cereal or granola along with some orange juice. Between the carbs and sugar in both, you’re sure to have the energy you’ll need when you hear the gun.
One caution: Be sure to eat several hours before the race to avoid any unpleasent side effects during the race.
Best of luck in your race!
