    Yes, Christine – that’s along the lines of what I’m thinking about. I’m sure there will be plenty of American food options around, but I like to eat like the natives do when I travel. I also think a lot of Japanese food can be great for runners – ramen should be good for carb loading and helping retain fluid. Sashimi is high in protein, but I would probably not have raw fish in the days leading up to race day. I think it would be great for recovery though with a good amount of carbs.

    Overall, I think the food will be great, but will also alter the gut biome and I’d rather be prepared than sorry.
