Question on morning runs

I am going to stat my new plane in a couple weeks easing from my typical 5K to 10K and ending in a half marathon with plans to do my second marathon next year in the summer (want to give myself a TON of time to train for another full)

So here is a question. My short runs are going to be in the mornings, then I will shower and head to work. Should I eat anything before the run? Should I be doing a carb load the night before? The reason I ask is that I often feel very ill if I eat before a run but I am wondering if I should throw down like a small fruit bar or granola or something since my stomache will be mostly empty when I start my run

thanks in advance!
