I’m on a running streak. Two days in a row. I rarely do that. I always like to have a day of rest in between runs. It’s a mental thing.
Yesterday morning I got up at 4:53 a.m. to meet my running friend. And it was a beautiful morning and a really great run for both of us.
So today another friend asked me to go run hill repeats at the Big Dam Bridge. I warily said yes.
Three and a half miles, five hill repeats up the BDB at a pace 8:45/mile or better and buckets of sweat later, I made my way home to cook something for supper.
I was hungry and hot and impatient. So I threw something together without much thought. And my thoughtlessness paid off.
The best post-run meal I’ve ever created. The Breakfast Sweet Potato.
What you need:
- Two eggs
- Sweet potato
- 3-4 slices of bacon
And that’s it.
I cooked the sweet potato in the microwave to speed up the process. Crisped the bacon. Fried the eggs, but made sure the yolks stayed a little runny.
The goodness is unreal.
The sweetness of the potato. The runny yolks of the eggs. The crunchy bacon pieces.
Best thing I’ve made in a long time. Go ahead and make it so we can talk about how good it is.
