This year an estimated 30,000 runners will travel to Philadelphia to participate in the 20 Annual Philadelphia Marathon and Half-Marathon on Sunday, November 17. The key to a healthy and successful long distance run is proper diet and nutrition. The best meal for a marathon participant consists of protein, good fats, and plenty of carbohydrates! Here are some great spots to chow down before the big day.
Le Viet is a modern Vietnamese restaurant that uses only freshest ingredients to energize you on race day! Tuck into traditional noodle soups or pack on the protein with Ca Hap Hanh Gung. This steamed fish dish is prepared with ginger soy sauce, herbs, fresh lettuce, and completed with your choice of rice or noodles. For more information click here.
