My Jam Monday & A Race in November

Another Monday and another catchy song. I never appreciated music so much, that's mostly because growing up I mostly listened to reggae music and I refused to listen to anything else , so now that I'm older and grown out of that "sticking to one style of genre" thing, I've come to appreciate the different types of music. 

I know by now everyone has heard of Taylor Swift's new song "Shake It Off," and believe me I'm no stranger to it. I have to be honest and start of by saying that I was no fan of Taylor Swift two years ago. But after her album RED and the song "We Are Never Getting Back Together" I was a fan and played the song constantly. 




"Shake It Off" is a fun, upbeat and great tempo type of song. It has that beat that would make anyone get up and dance, well at least me. I scream it to the highest of rooftops when I'm singing it. Although I contain myself when I'm running, I still feel pretty powerful. 

"My ex man brought his new girlfriend she's like OH MY GOD, I just gonna shake. And to the fella over there with the hella good hair won't you come on over baby we can shake, shake, shake." This is my favorite part. I don't know why, but it's just so edgy. Oh and the beginning when she says "I stay out too late." Yes I'm weird ha ha. 

It's the end of October and I'm kind of sad that I didn't have another race lined up for this month since races have become so addictive. But that's ok because I have one lined up for November! The turkey trot provided by New York runs. I wanted to do this race last year but of course it sold out so fast I didn't even get to register. So this year I made sure I did and I got it, I'm in to run the turkey trot baby! 

What I love about this race is that it takes place on thanksgiving morning the slogan is "you'll be home for turkey." So that's a plus. I mean I'm not a big thanksgiving fan for the most part, but I do appreciate that I can run a race and then decide to go home and cook if I wanted. 

Sadly this is the only race I am doing for November. In December I am looking to close out the year with one if not two races and then next year I start all over again by gaining entry to the NYC TCS Marathon for 2016. 

What races are you running in November? What races do you have left for the year?
