I look forward to your report. Your post sounds familiar to me. I've never raced, but I have been getting more and more hungry. I've been eating a little more fruit and it doesn't seem to be hurting me. But maybe I need to once more try the more fat thing because I'm getting really hungry the more I run. I, too, feel a surge like rocket fuel a few miles in. I figure that's when my body has finally relented to burn its own fat. Sadly, my body seems to want to hold onto all its fat no matter what I do. Even burning a little bit off doesn't seem to phase my body. It knows how to make me put it all right back on.
