It has been three weeks since I stopped running because of the stress fracture in my right foot. I tried to run over the weekend, and no go. None. Since then it has been 3 weeks of food, spring and drink. It will take at least a month to recover from this and be back in form. Maybe I should hit the gym and just bike or row. Ugh. Who knows.
That is also why I have not posted. I have not had any running news or insight to share, and all of my blogs would have been about food. And I have consumed enough food lately, so writing about it would have made me even hungrier.
But I will pass on something I did last weekend that was FANTASTIC. I barbecued baked potatoes on the grill. I coated them in veggie oil, Lawrys salt, and wrapped them in aluminum foil. And then on the grill, on the side opposite the fire for about an hour. Wonderful. I also added smoke chips, for "smoked" potatoes but I am not sure that had any effect; they were wrapped in foil after all. But when they were done, they were firm, moist and just wonderful.
Congrats to all those Boston folks! That is my inspiration to come back and run again!
