So the guys were serious..they wanted to party! It was a spur of the moment decision for most to get to a place to unwind and celebrate the Christmas season after our running session at UP last Tuesday. Eat, drink and sing were the order of the night! We had been running together since October and its almost Christmas so what a better way to bond and have a nice get-together than… well (besides running) to party!
So we went to this place called Spazzio along Maginhawa Street (yes, the street Second Wind Running Store made famous) in Teachers Village, Quezon City. The open Veranda ovelooking the street is situated, of all places..on top of a bank! There’s a side garage entrance where you climb up its stairs and you’re immediately welcomed by a special ambiance that’s ideal for light dinners, a few bottles of beer or if you want to stretch your vocal chords a bit, a sing-along room in the inner quarter that will suit you just fine.
I got to know many of the runners personally, who i’m just familiar with from seeing their faces during our running sessions and its really a revelation for me that not only are they good runners but they can actually sing!
Aside from the singing though, these group of runners were really revved up on the upcoming 5th Sunday run next January and this early, we are now preparing our roster for the 5k race events, the individual as well as the relays. Our representatives includes several sub-25min 5k runners, both male and female which will give other aNR groups some stiff competition.
I’m really looking forward to this event and give our group a chance to run, inter-act and compete with the other groups as well. In the meantime, cheers to all and may you all have a wonderful Christmas!
