North Face runner Mike Foote placed second at this year's Hardrock 100, finishing in Silverton, Colorado, in a time of 25 hours and 54 minutes. For dinner the night before the race, Foote downed a plate of homemade pasta, with a veggies, quinoa, and turkey burger. "It's not a go-to pre race dinner, but integrates lots of foods I eat on a regular basis," says Foote. His post race celebration snack? Ice cream from Big Dipper.
