Carbs, and protein, and running. Oh MY! Advise please!

I am training for the ToT 10 mile using the Galloway method. I run 3 miles 2-3 times a week with a long run every other weekend. I am looking for advice about what my body needs before running..
I try to keep well hydrated and eat balanced meals. Since I am training for a night race, I am doing night runs at home as well. My question is..sometimes when I am running I feel like I am going so slow-almost running in place (lol, though I know that is not true). Other times, I have great energy and feel wonderful. What should I be eating before running for that energy? I follow up my runs with protein and gatorade and water, so am okay there I think.

I have many pounds to shed and am not a big athlete, by any means, so I am a slow runner. I am okay with my average speed, I am asking about helping to boost my energy-not my overall speed.

Any advice is appreciated!
