Last Friday, January 13, Timex launched its Timex Run 2012: Time is Running at Café La Carmela along Jupiter Street in Makati. . The event was graced by no other than their celebrity endorser Piolo Pascual. I was fortunate to be invited together with other bloggers/runners and members of the media. We were given the chance to ask questions to Piolo and to Coach Rio regarding the upcoming event. Everyone must have been really impressed on how Piolo was able to squeeze in training with his very hectic schedules. He also shared his experiences and goals in running. After trying out the half marathon distance he is now aiming to run his first full marathon in Berlin this year. Piolo is currently training under Coach Jojo Macalintal.

It can be recalled that in the first Timex Run in 2009, Piolo set a remarkable performance by running a sub-50 in the 10K distance category thereby urging other runners to beat it. This brought about the term sub-piolo. This time, we are quite sure that he would give his best as he had always did in whatever endeavor he is into.
