Marathon Training :-)

I'm running the Maine Marathon and am gluten intolerant. Does anyone have any suggestions on good ways to carb load the night before?? Also suggestions for the morning of the race?? I have been getting the Gu gels and "enjoy" them..lol. At least I won't complain, they could be worse, and having the gluten intolerance has really made me stop obsessing so much over weird textures in foods!

*Shameless plug* Also, if any of you out there would like to help out and donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to support me, I'd appreciate it :-) There is a bonus if you are in the Boston area, I'm giving away some Red Sox Tickets... heck even if you aren't and you win, you could sell them :-)

Go Team! I did the Honolulu marathon in 2006 for LLS/TNT (before gluten issues) when I lived in California. I recently moved to the Boston area. I can't support you financially but I can lend emotional support. Gu...ick! (didn't end up using it, lol. Too hard on the stomach.). I found these great energy bars from california suncakes (californiasuncakes.com), they are vegan (if dairy's an issue) and wheat free, but do contain oats. I have never had a reaction to them, and I react to wheat, rye and barley, so I'd say they're safe but it's up to you.

Rice, and lots of it. The carbo-loading party they do the night before your race will be off limits to you - there won't be anything you will be able to eat, unless they've made changes to the menu. If you eat fish, I would suggest sushi (no eel or any fish that has sauce on it, of course), rice (brown rice is probably preferable), quinoa, fresh veggies and fruits. Talk to your team coordinator (not sure that's the right title) and/or your coach and/or mentors about what you will eat the night before. If you haven't had the nutrition seminar yet, be sure and ask about gluten-free carbo-loading (though they may not know...)

During the race, you should not eat or drink anything new, so I hope you have plenty of time before the marathon to experiment (in other words, I hope it's not next week). You're gonna need your electrolyte drink and energy bars (and gu, if it works for you), packed on your belt for the race and will need to eat/drink along the race route. The morning of the race, eat what you normally eat for breakfast (the mantra from my coach was "nothing new on marathon day. follow your usual routine"), especially on days you train. Come up with a breakfast that you will be able to get the morning of the race (if eggs, for example, get them the night before to eat in the morning).

Good luck and let me know if you want more pointers/have further questions.

Thanks so much for the tips!! I have been told by my team coordinator that they will have gluten free options available at the pasta party, I just have to make sure and note it on m commitment paperwork, which I have. :-) Honolulu would be nice!! I'm kind of struggling with the fundraising part as I just moved to the area as well and don't know too many people, but Maine is the "cheapest" and doing it without the mentoring and coaching just seems more than I can take on. The water stops along the long run days make it well worth it. I had originally planned on running Nike San Francisco, but kind of glad to switch to Maine. :)

The race is in October, thats why I'm trying to get things figured out now so I can try them on my long run days and see how they work. The gu worked pretty well, but its the only thing I've tried as well. So I will look into the california suncakes. I have some gummy things to try on my next long run. Another coach I ran with told me to bring something like nuts if I'm going to use the Gu to help absorb some of the sugar so I don't crash off of it.

This is my first marathon, and really my first running experience so its quite exciting!!

Wow, really? Gluten free options? That's cool.

I had problems with the fundraising too, but I just took a couple of hours each week to walk around downtown Santa Cruz and hit up every local business for donations. I'm not shy, obviously, lol. You do have to expect a lot of rejections but I was finished fundraising by the time the final commitment papers had to be signed. I actually was going to do Sacramento, but my coach convinced me that if I could raise enough I should do Hawaii. Once I raised enough by the recommitment deadline, I switched.

You can't count on the water stops at the marathon, unless you are sure they are using an energy drink you have had before (you don't want to end up "running" in the bathroom instead of running the marathon, lol). I don't know the area very well yet, but I have seen a running store on Boylston St in the vicinity of Copley Square. The employees of those stores are usually pretty knowledgeable about energy drinks, gu, etc.

Your coach is right, the gu is not good by itself. You want something you can chew as well as the gu if you use it. I did not use it and I had a great run. If you don't end up liking the california suncakes (they are not very sweet, only fruit sugar, so many people don't like them because we Americans are used to eating crap loaded with sugar. I love them, though), Cambridge Naturals in Porter Square has gluten-free energy bars that are good (a little too sweet for me) but pricey.

I was very blessed to have a really awesome, knowledgeable coach. I found that out at the marathon, when I ran into other TNT teams that were not nearly as well trained. Good luck with everything. Please keep me posted.

Wow! Good for you running a marathon! I am a 13.1 type runner. I really enjoy it, but with 3 kids five and under, I can't commit more time than I already do to my running schedule. I guess I'll have to wait until they get a bit older for the full... but I certainly want to run one!

I can tell you that I was diagnosed with Celiac a little over a year ago. After I drastically had to change my diet, I ran a half marathon about a month later. What a disaster!!! My body said, "No way!" and although I finished, I ended up in the medical tent with extreme heat exhaustion and feeling sick, sick, sick. I cried and cried, and felt as though my body had betrayed me. Fast forward a year... I ran the same half this year, Guess what? I took over thrity minutes off my previous time, and no medical tent. Yippeee! My goal for next year is to take another 15 minutes or so off...

I have found that since carbs have pretty much been eliminated from my diet, I CRAVE protein. The rice pasta doesn't seem to give the same effect as the old pasta used to. I really agree with what the friends above said about not changing anything. I ran the same way I normally did, and it was great! The only thing I did do differently was made sure to really hydrate the week before. I tried to take a drink of water everytime I thought about it, or went into the kitchen. One last trick was that I took a small lunch box filled with some of my favorite gluten-free snacks and stashed it in the bushes. When the race was done, I went out to my little hiding spot and happily munched my way to recovery.

Good luck to you! I can't wait to hear how it goes!

River Faerie, I also found that I craved protein shortly after starting my gluten-free diet. I was never a big meat-eater before. I'm still not, but I eat more of it now than I used to. I also eat a lot more beans and lentils than I used to.

Back to the original topic, I'm getting back into half marathon shape. It took me awhile to get my running body and my celiac diet to work together. For filling carbs, I love quinoa. I use the grain for a tabouli-like salad and you can get pasta made from it (which I've found to be better tasting than rice or corn pastas), usually at Whole Foods.

For energy bars, I like Lara Bars and Kind Bars. Lara Bars are almost all fruit, and they're sweet. Kind Bars are mostly nut. It's been a while since I was in the States, but I think Lara Bars can be found at REI and most outdoor stores. I think I bought Kind bars at Whole Foods before I started ordering them in bulk from Amazon. Not all varieties are gluten-free, but both companies are good with labeling so it's easy to tell which ones are.

Good luck with the marathon!

@ leenabeana,

I've found Hammer Nutrition products to be pretty good. All natural and of course gluten-free. The Hammer Gels are great and easy to use. I use HEED as a liquid supplement during all my runs and rides.

The original Q..."Does anyone have any suggestions on good ways to carb load the night before?? Also suggestions for the morning of the race??"

Try loading about 2 days out with potatoes and some traditional gluten-free pasta. As far as the morning of...nothing will really help the day of. All of your stored energy is gonna come from your previous 2-3 days of nutrition. Eat something light to keep your stomach settled.

Is your race on Oct. 4th?

GOOD LUCK!

I like risotto-- and have always used that as a night before meal. With winter squash, if it's the fall or winter. With kale, and sometimes some non-fatty fish.

Any suggestions for pre-race substitutes for the good ol' PB & honey sandwich?

I can't suggest anything yet because I haven't run mine, but I'm fundraising for the San Diego Rock N Roll half marathon! Very cool to see another TNT member on here!! Best of luck -- fundraising is tough. I have $1400 left to go and am trying to come up with ideas...I'm thinking hitting up local businesses isn't a bad idea! ;)

I have run several half marathons and two full marathons since being diagnosed 3 years ago with Celiac. I personally use Infinit which is a sports drink that has everything you need nutrition wise in it for your race. You can order it at Infinit.com. The people there are very knowledgeable and can help you with the formula that will work best for you. I carry a water bottle and then baggies of powder with me to mix at aide stations when my bottle is empty. I have also used Sharkies and Powergel.

As for the carbo loading the night before, you can do rice or even a gluten free pasta. I like the Tinkanyada (sp?)rice pasta. You can also do chicken breasts for protein. The morning of, I usually will have a gluten free bagel with peanut butter and a banana.

I am attempting my first Ironman Triathlon this coming weekend. Wish me luck!

Good luck with your fundraising and marathon!

Runners everywhere!! This is so cool!!

I've used infinit before too - very good stuff. I love how you can personalize it. I am a fan of gu, gu chomps, and clif shot bloks. If you are worried about heat and salt for the marathon, the margarita shot blocks have extra sodium in them.

I second the tinkyada (sp?) pasta vote - it's the best that I can find.

Runner girl - are you doing St George this weekend?? I would LOVE it if you sent a message to me afterwards letting me know what you thought of it, and the course and the weather and everything!! I did Ironman Arizona (my first too) this part November, and was looking at St. George for maybe next year. I am very excited for you!! GOOD LUCK!!

I just started training again for another half marathon. It's addictive. :)

My favorite gluten-free gels are Gu (chocolate or coffee flavors only taste good) and cliff shot blocks (which are also luna moons). Sharkies are gluten-free, but waxy and gross. I don't really use the sports drinks, but there are definitely gluten-free options out there. I ran San Jose last year, and whatever they had was gluten free.

I like brown rice, but I'm also a fan of buckwheat groats. Bob's Red Mill has them gluten free. I also recommend sweet potatoes. I make them more like home fries because I don't like the sugary recipes.

I also make a big batch of banana bread muffins. Can you eat nuts? Do you have any other food allergies? These freeze really well. I would test them before the race to see how you feel, but these are also the muffins I eat for breakfast before I do a long run. They are dense, but don't feel heavy in my stomach.

Gluten Free Banana Bread Muffins (Makes 12)

Beat together until smooth:

1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce

2 eggs

1 Tbsp lime or lemon juice

1 cup brown sugar (pack it down to measure!)

1 Tbsp vanilla

Mix in:

1 cup mashed bananas

Combine in separate bowl:

1 cup gluten-free flour mix

3/4 cup almond meal

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1.5 tsp xanthan gum

1/4 tsp salt

Fold dry ingredients into banana mixture. Fold in 1/2 cup to 1 cup of pecans (optional). Spoon into muffin pan. Bake 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Thank you.

bit by bit. have you done much exercise before? There are tons of websites with info on there, but I'd stick with ones that are a bit more established, like the link below from runner's world. Walking, then running! :D

http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-380-381-386-9397-0,00.html

Hope this helps! And be sure to have a pair of shoes that are suited for running. Doesn't have to cost a lot, just not sketchers or keds or something...

I am training for my first Marathon. I've run a few 5K's and 10K's and I am ramping up my mileage for a fall marathon, a 50K trail run and the San Antonio Rock and Roll Marathon. Many long run competitions have pasta dinners that I have to avoid due to my celiac disease. It is annoying and inconvenient that part of the fees go toward a dinner that you can't eat. Oh well.

BTW, a plug for my friends -- If you are coming to San Antonio for the marathon or whatever.. Chicken Paradise is a gluten-free bed and breakfast in San Antonio. If you want variety in places to eat, Little Aussie bakery and cafe is nothing less than wonderful.

As far as my own pre-race pasta... I vote for the corn pasta (spaghetti made by De Boles) though the Tinkyada brown rice pasta comes in a close second (for me).

I like to use the GNC Whey Protein (Chocolate) in Almond Milk for a nice protein dose before and after workouts (both are gluten free). If I had to go dairy free, I'd probably go for the egg protein.

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.

    • Congratulations!!🎆🎇🎊🥂  
    • Becca4130, Being gluten free for a while would cause your blood serology to test negative but many people choose not to finish a gluten challenge because of how bad they feel on gluten. NCGS is a real thing even though most doctors don't recognize it today. See this care2 article that explains what might be  happening in your case. https://www.care2.com/causes/new-study-confirms-existence-of-non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity.html The rate of positive blood serology is 2x higher than biopsy confirmed Celiac disease. see this new research about the rate of NCGS (serology postive Celiac)  in the general public without positive biopsy.  . . though for this research they considered both serology (blood tests) and biopsy confirmed celiac diagnosis as the real rate of Celiac disease in the general public. quoting Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals." Which they say  quoting again "means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed" or I think in many causes NCGS is not being declared because they consider a blood positive test inconclusive in the absence of a confirmed biopsy. and it sounds like what is happening in your Case especially since you have been gluten free long enough to not test positive on your blood work. See the Care2 article which is typically 6 months and your antibodies goes down naturally when you are gluten free that long. quoting "Though the cause of the two conditions seems to be very different, the study confirmed that the best treatment is the same for both conditions. After six months of only consuming gluten-free grains, the NCGS group reported a significant improvement in their digestive and non-digestive symptoms, and the immune system markers identified earlier in the study had normalized." ****this is not medical advice but what makes sense to me after having been serology (blood) positive for antibodies that went down on a gluten free diet. You might also see this thread that talks about some of these same issues. I hope this is helpful and good luck on your continued journey. I also meant to add this link http://www.mdmag.com/medical-news/not-everyone-predisposed-to-celiac-disease-develops-it Or It could be you have not developed celiac yet because your gut biome has protected you so far from developing it. quoting "The study authors determined that while about 40 percent of the population have a genetic disposition to celiac disease, just about 1 percent develop the condition upon exposure to gluten. Mice who housed Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria (Psa) in their guts – transplanted from celiac patients – metabolized gluten different than mice treated with the probiotic Lactobacillus.

      The researchers further observed that Psa produced gluten sequences that initiated inflammation in celiac patients. Lactobacillus was used to detoxify the gluten.

      "So the type of bacteria that we have in our gut contributes to the digestion of gluten, and the way this digestion is performed could increase or decrease the chances of developing celiac disease in a person with genetic risk,” senior study author Dr. Elena Verdu explain(s)" Again I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the Grace of God,
    • Fun fact, google your doctors name, 2-4 review sites will have them and their info. You can submit a public review of your doctor.......inform people of this story on the review sites and this doctors "incompetence" in relation to your disease.
    • After I posted this, he called me because I replied to the note questioning if I was reading the test results correctly because they didn't look negative to me. He told me that A. diarrhea is not really a symptom of celiac (huh, wonder why all the poop jokes about it then...) B. if I had both genes plus a positive antibody test, that would mean that there was about a 95% chance that I do have celiac right now, not a potential to develop it and C. if I stay on a gluten free diet (which I don't have to because he says I don't have celiac) then he won't retest the antibodies because of course they will go down and there is no need to test. I'm pretty much speechless. It is abundantly clear why he was the first available when others had a wait.
