We had the Ironman Triathlon today, and I happened to be wandering about near the refreshment stand shortly before the first competitors ran past. Perhaps you wonder what kind of portable food is available for athletes who start a race at 7 am and may not finish until midnight: not just ice water or Gatorade, but lunch and maybe even dinner.
Here's what I saw:
Bananas and grapes. Pretzels and cookies. Power bars (the volunteer confided, "Looks like mystery meat to me!"). Several kinds of drinks, including cola. Not a bad spread, but I wonder how you run and peel a banana at the same time?
