I was reminded of a few things I forgot about marathon training today after my 12 mile run.
- The blisters.
- The chafing that you discover as soon as water from the shower hits it.  (THE WORST.) 
- The hunger that turns your stomach into a bottomless pit.

After my 12 miles I took a shower and discovered 3 places where my skin and clothes decided to argue.  Stung so badly in what was supposed to be a relaxing shower.

I then drank my weight in water/coffee and ate all the cashews.  2 pounds gone in 2 days. 

I also went to Trader Joe's today!  One just opened up about 20 minutes away from me so I was pretty pumped to stop by with my mom.  She got cookie butter, these really good orange glazed cookies, and some vegetarian sausage.  I wanted to buy 6 jars of nut butters, but I decided my wallet (and stomach) would thank me later.

After that I did some baking.  Ate a huge bag of peanut butter M&Ms.  Ate more cashews.

Watched some Lord of the Rings (nerd alert, I've accepted it).  I love all things LOTR.  I want this picture framed for my house:

And of course, my week in miles:

Monday 11/10 - Rest day :)

Tuesday 11/11 - 6 miles 

Wednesday 11/12  - Rest day 

Thursday 11/13 - 5 miles

Friday 11/14 - 4 quick miles on the treadmilly (my only treadmill run this week :) 

Saturday 11/15 - 5 miles 

Sunday 11/16 - 12 miles.  My longest run since my marathon.  About a year ago I considered 12 miles to be a short run.  My brain has changed it's mind!

Total Mileage: 32 miles

What's your favorite thing to buy from Trader Joe's?

- There were so many things I wanted to try!  I need suggestions to narrow it down.
