On it’s 9th year and going very strong, our all-time favorite Piolo Pascual and Sun Life Financial Philippines held their annual SunPiology Run at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City, dubbed this year as Sun Life Resolution Run focusing once more on the fight against diabetes and the continuous advocacy and campaign of a healthier lifestyle thru regular exercise and fitness-related activities.
According to Papa Piolo, “We called it the Resolution Run, because every New Year we have resolutions right? And what better way to start another year is having a healthier lifestyle.”

Father and son Papa P and Iñigo Pascual led the 10km runners at the starting line which gunstarted at 5pm. Followed by the 5km and 3km runners. Earlier the 500m dash for kids was always a delight to watch.
Iñigo was excited to run with his dad this year and I even joked him if he was going to pace him during their 10km instead of his dad Piolo.
Last November 2017 it was Iñigo's first time to cycle 40kms during the SunCycle event and Papa Piolo paced and guided him up to the finish line.
Piolo considers his SunPiology Run his annual birthday run with the running community and he is very grateful to the generous support of Sun Life Financial Philippines which they have been doing for the past nine years now going on its 10th year for 2019.
Being a famous and constant sough-after celebrity for many years, Piolo has encouraged and inspired a lot of his fellow celebrities to join the fitness bandwagon. He started out with a lot of fun runs until he levelled up to cycling and has been joining relays in triathlon events during Cobra Ironman in Cebu.
Who would have thought that at 41, Papa P doesn't look his age thanks perhaps to great genes from both his parents. And that he is also considered as one of showbizness' youngest "Lolo" courtesy of granchild Priam Bryle from his eldest sister's daughter.
Competitive athlete swimmer Enchong Dee was one of the early celebrity finishers for 10km. He even outran Matteo Guidicelli who's an active triathlete and sports guy.
The very lean and toned Bailey May is a mean 100 meter dash sprinter. He was anxious and eager to podium finish his 10km run for SunPiology.
Iñigo is blessed to have a sporty dad in Papa Piolo. I am also personally happy for him that he's devoted regular fitness activities despite his busy schedule. Way to go!
Getting ready for their 10km...Matteo Guidicelli game face while Bailey relaxes while in quick chat at the front line.
Hashtag Jameson Blake was one of the 3km runner and he informed us he was just going on chillax mode along the route. I came across Jameson along the way and he made an early U-turn while making onlookers "kilig" and shriek a lot! ♥
Hi there 5km runners!!!
We also spotted Nico Antonio, Marco Gallo, Nikki Valdez among the sea of yellow runners.

The irresistible Sun Life mascot made a lot of runners smile. ☺
Kisses Delavin charmed and wowed the crowd during the Star Magic post run concert. She rendered three songs from her debut album "Kisses" featuring the hit single, "Di Ko Lang Masabi".
Lovely Maris Racal after her 3km run. Fellow bloggers zeroed in on her current status with fellow Star Magic partner Iñigo Pascual and what their upcoming Valentine's plans are. Have fun!
Model Tommy Esguerra shared that he used to be a regular runner especially during his high school years. He joined the 5km runners and had fun along the route.
Tommy shared he is still in progress in his brush with his Tagalog lessons. "Syempre gusto kong ma-improve ang Tagalog ko para more projects." But he also admitted that at times he feels less confident going thru with the lessons and speaking in the vernacular but is determined to really learn and become a lot better. You can do it Tommy! Fighting lang!

Congratulations to all the podiumers of Sun Life Resolution Run 2018. Thank you to all runners who joined the great cause. With your help, you are able to assist the scholars of the Pascual family's Hebreo Foundation that has been helping send poor but deserving scholars to school since 2009. Some of the scholars were also present during the program.
Kudos and special shout to exciting and fun emcee, Robi Domingo, who did a marathon hosting during the pre and post run proceedings. He even ran 5km with ease and was also a favorite eye candy among his fans. Soooo happy seeing you as always!
Congratulations to Papa P, Sun Life Financial Philippines, race logistics RunRio, Star Magic and to all the partners and sponsors of this year's SunPiology Run.
Special thanks to Sun Life's Ms. Rizza Mantaring, Ms Mylene Lopa; Star Magic's Ms Thess Gubi, Ms. Lyka, Deza and ABC Digital's Arnel B. I had fun running again! ☺☺
Thank you fellow runners for valuing great health and may we all continue to fight the alarming state of diabetes.
