That's interesting, why do marathons have pre-race dinners? Isn't that too much food the night before the race? I'll be running my first marathon in Newport on May 30 so I'd like to know if I should skip that meal.

Good thoughts. I always try to "dial down" the amount of food I take in prior to race day. The worst is getting an upset stomach when you're trying to focus on the race!


So, it seems the pasta parties often held the night before a race are of no help. Do you think a nice big pasta dinner two nights prior to the race is a good idea?

Pre-race dinners should instead take place post-race, but I've yet to see one that offers that.
