Circuit Makati Quickie

Circuit Makati is probably the biggest development in the city of Makati and being pretty close to my office, I decided to drop by after work to see what’s in store.  Here’s my quick tour on foot.

LSD with Takbo.ph

Last Sunday being my last weekend here in the Philippines (for February at least) I decided to do an LSD one last time, before finally heading off to Ohio, USA.  I’m uncertain if I can do my regular weekend runs there being winter and all so just to play safe in increasing my mileage I…
