I remember two years ago some enterprising individuals came out with shirts that said “I’m running with Piolo”, riding on the news that superstar actor Piolo Pascual was running at the Timex Race with Coach Rio. We all know how that turned out: the sub-Piolo was created, and running races hit the big time.
We’ve had only a few Piolo sightings at races since then, and none at all this year. That’s about to change with SunLife’s SunPIOLOGY Sunset Run on December 10 at Bonifacio Global City.
With all the rumors and gossip around Piolo following his girlfriend KC Concepcion’s abrupt departure for Europe, this race could be exactly what Piolo needs — a way to reconnect with his athletic passions. The race will also raise funds for the scholars under his Hebreo Foundation.

I’m interested in how fast Piolo can race this time around; can he do a sub-Piolo? And of course I would also really like for Piolo to complete a triathlon and to finish among the top 10 of a race, just so he can finally use the labels “triathlete” and “competitive runner” truthfully. 😛 Will we continue to see Piolo at the races? Time will tell.
