Iron food for iron men

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?
