Carbo Loading For…Whatever

The Takbo.ph runners has a knack for organizing get-together events, for reasons being civic, leisure or the endless socials that are almost always related to the sport we love, running.  The get-together sorties after a race is always a ritual, whether it’s held in the small confines of a McDonald’s branch or a nearby watering hole which transforms into one lively party! And there’s always a reason to celebrate.

Nothing connects these runners like a good week night of bonding and talks vary from their recent marathon finish or plans to run another one in the foreseeable future. Last Wednesday evening, the group decided to meet up once again for an early Carbo Loading Party (CLP),  to prepare those who were running the Subic International Marathon,  the North Face 100k relay in Singapore,  the Race for Life at the Fort, the Adidas King of the Road , an upcoming LSD and for whatever reasons.

joeyjpgVenue of the CLP was the Joey Pepperoni Pizzeria, located in one isolate corner of the Bonifacio Global City. Aside from Pizza, JPP serves great pasta and for the amount of P150.00, you can have unlimited servings of their Carbonara, Spaghetti Festo or the meat-tomato sauce variety.

After having our tummies filled up with pasta, the group headed off to Pier One for some booze loading that knocked our brains off into oblivion, myself included.

Here are our pictures:
