Marathon Training Diet

abu applesauce | Jan 22, 2008 07:06 AM

I am planning to run a half-marathon for the first time.
My knowledge of food/nutrition is basic--lean protein = good, heavy carb = bad, but carb good for runnning...
Can anyone provide some information on a healthy training diet?
I will be training early morning and I work for a living, so my post-training meal needs to include a pick-me up--I can't be a zombie at work for 12 weeks.
Also, what to eat before the early morning run? I've been told a banana and some peanut butter--will I be burping up peanut butter every morning as I run?
Please help--I am genuinely clueless
