Weekend in Philly and a Marathon

I'm going to be in Philly with my brother on 9/14-15 for the Philly Rock n Roll Half Marathon. Any suggestions for pre-race carbo-loading, snacking, and a post-race celebratory brunch/lunch place? How about must-eat foods to try?

Let's see, I have two lunches, a dinner, dessert, and numerous snacking opportunities during my trip. I'll be hungry after the half marathon, plus I can stock up of road trip food and worthy food-stuffs to bring home.

Tony Luke's cheesesteak and roast pork sandwich is already on my list. And I want to check out Reading Terminal.

My brother and I are not-too rich, 20-somethings, so we probably don't want to spend a lot of $$$ at a fancy pants restaurant. Though I heard the brunch at LaCroix is AMAZING ($69 though). Is it worth the splurge?
And unfortunately, we won't be drinking since alcohol is dehydrating.
