Hill Repeat Treats

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.  

It’s always good to watch the sun come up. 

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. 

Holy. Crap.

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.
