An unlikely breakfast

People usually wonder what I eat before races. My usual routine is baked sweet potatoes at 3 hours before race time. They're especially good with tahini, or almond butter, or cinnamon.

But since I've got three out of town races in September, this could have thrown a wrench in my plans. So before today's race, I tested out my brilliant idea:

Baby food.

Specifically, two jars of Gerber #3 sweet potatoes.  120 cals, 25g carbs, and 3g of fiber each. Don't need refrigeration and travel friendly.

Granted, not the most enjoyable breakfast, but it worked great. That is a huge relief!
