    Yes. Eat Bananas!! that will keep them away! A Charlie Horse is basically a cramp in your leg. Bananas have potassium that helps elieviate that kind of issue... :)

    I got cramps in my calf nearly every morning of the first tri with my son, it was worse when i stretched in a morning. It would go away eventually when i rubbed it, but it was painful. Nothing this time round.

    Never knew about bananas:dohh: Hope they help you
