Most of the time, eat a balanced diet comprised mostly with foods found on the 'outside' of the grocery store aisles. Lots of fruits and vegetables. Lean proteins and fish. Few processed foods.

During exercise, when needed, pull out the 'sugared' drinks and snacks (gels, bars, etc.).

Usually agree with the great advise that JK gives but I would like to add one thing to "During exercise, when needed, pull out the 'sugared' drinks and snacks (gels, bars, etc.)." You do not need these when running under 90 minutes or cycling under 2hrs. With proper training you can stretch that to 2hrs running and 3hrs on the bike. Far too many think that they need to take in sugar during shorter workkouts.

Or better yet, make your own sports food!!
Using nuts, dates, figs and other things to make homemade granola bars and treats, I've been able to avoid using any sort of Gels/Gus for most of my training this summer...and my stomach is WAY happier!!
Experiment and see what works and what doesn't and then work on timing. Good luck!

I pretty much do a modified paleo - so lots of lean means, fresh veg, complex carbs - I don't eat bread/rolls/pasta (of the normal variety) - but do use brown rice pasta, quinoa, kelp noodles, stuff like that. also limit the dairy that I intake (normally a bit of chocolate milk for the protein after a workout and that's about it).

this is one of the books out there
Paleo Diet for Athletes Guide - but there are lots more available

If I am 'hammering it' the entire time do I need to take any nutrition with me on this sprint race? I know under normal training I wouldn't need any additional nutrition for this distance.
