Just eat healthy, maybe with a bias towards carbs. As mpilchfamily says, diet is only a fraction of the work. Many years ago, I trained for a half marathon - food wasn't mentioned, just distance run, time, pacing etc.

If you still want proper dietary advice, go talk to a doctor or professional trainer.

Remember: free medical advice from the internet is often worth less than you pay for it.

Diet isn't nearly half the work. Eating isn't going to build your endurance.

But you need to look at high calorie diets.
