In brief: Probably Not
While bones generally heal in 4-6 weeks time, it sounds like you sustained a fairly significant injury and there will be still healing of the soft tissues and strengthening of the bone.
I would suggest also speaking with the surgeon who repaired your injuries for a more complete picture of healing time frame.

In brief: Ask your orthopedist
Your surgeon just got up close and personal with your foot.
Ask him/her to give you an estimate of when you are able to walk, run, race.
