    I’m finding that a half cup of oatmeal, a couple tablespoons of chia seeds, a small banana sliced in, and a tablespoon (or two) of peanut butter about an hour before I run is easily sustaining me for 3-4 hours- no sense of fatigue, no crashing, no muscle soreness. This is running trails with a lot of terrain and elevation changes, I just take a CamelBack with a couple of litres of water to stay hydrated.

    Not bonking during a run is a good feeling and having energy to do stuff afterwards is great too.

    I don’t really want to get into the gel thing so I’m going to try my wife’s homemade energy balls for longer runs.
