I run about the same distance, and usually do not eat/drink before I go. I do, however like to take a sip or 2 of hot coffee before I leave on really cold mornings (like today!), as it helps keep me warm when I start out. Can't be too much, though. Some people claim you're burning more fat by going on an empty stomach, as your glycogen stores have been depleted. I don't get involved with the science - I'm an early bird, and if I don't run in the morning, I usually won't run at all on most days.
I would recommend increasing the protein in your breakfast - it really helps with recoveryand satiety.
