My Sunday Breakfast of Champions

Some of you might be thinking that I just got fed up with oatmeal, but this is not the case, I still eat it for most of my weekdays’ breakfasts. Saturdays I usually eat a small pre-race breakfast, but Sundays are different story. On Sundays I like eating eggs, ham and bread – just a […]
