What do runners eat?

running and screaming
I know I have several runners amongst my friends, and I'm wondering, what do you eat before a run?

I had a friend in Oslo who ate a normal meal before a run. Pizza was good, she said, because it sat well in her tummy. She ate one hour before a run.  I've read all kinds of advice about what to eat and when to eat it, but I would like more anecdotal advice from people I know.

I've tried eating anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes before a run, and I've tried eating all kinds of foods, with varying degrees of success. I've been starving during runs or burping up peanut butter and bananas. I know it's hard, if not impossible, to strike a perfect balance of satiety, but I'm still trying.

I feel ridiculous asking because I'm not even running long distances, but I'd really like to minimize the amount of complaining my body does during every run.

Just tidying up. Anyone still want to hang in there? Let me know. Not that anyone else is kicking around anyway, but just in case.
