I love the month of November. This is the month we dust the ol’ Christmas tree and dress him up for the Holidays. Bazaars start popping up all over the metro, but people are not in a wild Christmas frenzy; they shop unhurriedly for a gift list that isn’t quiet final yet. And, when you hear a Christmas tune in a mall or an elevator this early, it’s a special moment. One thinks “Christmas is coming.” and a warm, fuzzy feeling takes over.
Who knew that November was this good in the running world too? The races this month were/are spectacular. During the 1st half of the month, Milo Baguio and New Balance races were held (I still can’t stop hitting myself on the head for missing NB…Grrr). But, the upcoming races for the rest of the month are worth joining too:
