Tomorrow, I am going to run a marathon, so now I will eat pasta!
Why do you need to eat pasta Mummy?
Pasta has carbs in it, which will help Mummy have energy for tomorrow.
Ok Mummy. That's soo cool. Lets go to bed now.
I can't wait to run this marathon...
Come on Mummy!!!!!
This grey bottle is my energy drink. This will give me energy too but this is a different type of energy.
I am a glucose molecule. When a runner eats carbs, I get stored up in the liver and muscles. When the runner is getting tired, I get released into their blood stream and give them a boost of energy.
I am the energy drink. The runner also gets energy from me, but in a different way. I contain water, which re-hydrates the runner, but I also contain glucose and sugar. These are released into the blood stream right away, giving the runner instant energy.
