Carb Intake During a Marathon

To give their muscles a decent boost during the final, carbo-depleted miles of the race, marathoners need to take in more than 30 grams of carbs per hour DURING the race. The easiest way to accomplish that is to slurp down 12 ounces of standard sports drink just before the race begins and five to six swallows every 15 minutes thereafter -Owen Anderson,

MY COMMENTS: 30 grams equals 120 calories
