I am starving myself, but I am not, just trying to eat small portions of healthy food. Thank you for an answer.
When I ran in the morming, I would eat breakfast, go out the door, take 15 minutes to get up to full bore. I have a blood sugar problem and I would have passed out if I hadn't eaten. If I had just broke into full speed I would have tossed it. You can eat and run, just shift thru your gears.
