Can't eat anything before I run
I usually run first thing in the morning before I have breakfast. In the past I've been able to eat something light before I left for the run, but I'm finding now that I'm running faster for my LSD and rest paces, I can't eat anything. This morning I had a couple handfuls of Cheerios, and I had an upset stomach for the first mile or so.
