Major races are in full swing this spring, with the Cherry Blossom Ten-Miler on deck for this Sunday. Curious, we asked readers via Twitter this morning to share their go-to pre-race meals. The verdict? Some version of bread with peanut butter and banana. (We couldn’t agree more!)

Of course, everyone is different, so don’t feel like you have to change your typical breakfast right before race day. Read on for more pre-race dinner and breakfast ideas, and feel free to add your own in the comments section.
