Sunday Summary – 12/15/2013

This week started off on a bad note (stuck on the couch sick with the stomach flu) but ended better than I could have imagined with a first place finish at the Santa Run 5k on Saturday.

I will be doing a full recap of yesterday’s race in tomorrow’s post but for now here’s what my week of training looked like…

Wednesday – Spaghetti with Bison Meatballs, homemade tomato sauce, and green beans
