The ability to run better comes from strength, and by denying yourself the proper nutrition you deprive your body of the food it needs to develop and maintain it's strength.

Improper nutrition means that the athlete is eating food, but the type of food does not adequately meet their needs. Fried foods, sodas, high sugar snacks should all be consumed in moderation. Good nutritional practices incorporate the basic food groups: grains, fruits and vegetables, dairy, and meat/poultry/fish. Athletes' diets should be high in complex carbohydrates while also including essential proteins and fats. In addition, athletes should be drinking 10 or more glasses of water per day.
