In brief: Some simple steps

A fueling strategy to optimize running requires focusing on 3 parts.
Prior to the run, make sure you are eating enough carbs by including complex carbs in your diet. During a run of longer than an hour, consider refueling with gels, sports drink, or any other source of simple sugar (jelly beans). Within 30 min of finishing, refuel. Chocolate milk is the right mix of carb and protein.

In brief: Glucose

Many power bars and power aid drinks can easily boost one's glucose level; fresh fruits which are a source of fructose may also boost your levels.
