Hi all - I'm in need of ideas/helpful hints for my DH's first half marathon at WDW in Jan. The big issue is, he turns 50 the night before running the half, and I'd really like to plan a celebration/dinner, but being new to running, I'm not sure what is realistic... Do you eat a big dinner the night before a race? Are you in bed early? (that would leave out a fireworks cruise idea...) Are there certain foods/buffets to avoid? We are meeting up with friends, and I thought Germany is a fun place to dine, but is the food compatible with running the next day? I could wait and plan something the day after his birthday, after he's run, but the other family we're meeting is doing the Goofy, so they wouldn't be open that night. So any ideas? What do most runners do the night before a race?
