Subject: Food/Drinks during HIM
I'm doing my first HIM (also my first triathlon) next month. So due to my lack of experience with the races I have a million questions, but my biggest is where can I find some good information about what to eat and drink and when during my race. My training is coming along nicely but all I've really done so far is drink water during my runs and rides (Swimming too ) But seriously I need to find some good info on gels, drinks, times that are best to do it. It's the thing I'm most worried about honestly. I'm not going for a fast time, just wanting to finish. Thanks!

There was a good thread on the main triathlon talk forum yesterday re: nutrition for a full IM. Most of the same stuff would hold true for a half.

As every veteran athlete can attest, a non-existent or ill planned ‘race meal plan’ will leave you falling far short of your goals or even worse, in the medical tent.

You know what you should eat. Yet you just don’t want to. Yuck—whole wheat bread, bran cereal, oatmeal, skim milk, spinach, fish, fruit for snacks and desserts.
