Bananas & Oranges: a perfect fruit team?

I am going to try to start eating these more regularly during training. I had a piece of banana during the marathon, and I learned that it goes down pretty easily. After my calf-cramping episode, I realized that these two are given during races to balance electrolytes, potassium to be exact. Sodium and potassium need to be in balance, and if you're drinking Gatorade, there's your sodium. An imbalance can lead to cramping. Sounds simple enough.
