I'm planning to do a double crossing of the Grand Canyon next week.  Rim to Rim to Rim (r2r2r).  Its about 50 miles with just under 12,000 feet of elevation change.  I'm planning to take enough food for 15 hours of running.  Mostly dates, with a few bananas and a small bag of rice and beans for lunch at the halfway point on the north rim.  This will be my longest run on REAL food.  My training for this over the past few months has shown me how much better it is to be fueled with real food rather than all that sugar/maltodextrin junk they market to distance athletes.  No stomach issues at all.  The food does not pack as easily.  I really prefer bananas, but they are just too hard to pack for anything over about 6-7 hours of running.  Dates pack much better.  I also found that dates work better if they are soaked before eating, and I have a small flask that was originally designed for holding the gel goop for triathletes.  I put a date or two in it and transfer some water into it a few minutes before I need to eat.  Just letting them soak for a bit really helps to digest it easier.  Looking forward to an epic day running in the canyon.  I'll post here again after to let you know how it goes.

@Dennis, I don't add anything other than greens and some some cocos or avocados. What is your purpose? More calories? I just don't feel as light or quick when I eat anything else.

I hope to run a half marathon or a full marathon next year. How long do you think it will take to train for one? I run about 5k most days.
