While you're sleeping, your body loses glycogen.
After a few minutes of exercise, carbohydrates stores (which are stored in the muscle as glycogen) are tapped, replenishing depleted blood glucose and restoring energy levels.
We've even spotted Baked Sweet Potatoes there as well, which would give you even more nutrition for your glycogen buck.
Traditional thinking held that since our bodies store only about 20 miles worth of glycogen, some of the race had to be run at a "moderate" pace to enable the body to switch to metabolized fat as fuel.
