Looking Back at the 2012 TIMEX Run with Coach Rio and Piolo Pascual

Timex Run Race Results 2012 Shows Piolo Finished with a new 10KM PR!

I have a lot of side stories to tell for the now-concluded 2012 TIMEX RUN which was held yesterday, January 22 at the BGC. But truth to tell, the best story of the race which all Piolo Pascual fans – or even those who are not, are waiting for is the official  answer to the question – “Was Piolo able to set  a new 10km Personal Record for his finish time?
