Piolo Pascual. Good news to takbo.ph runner Gingerbreadman: Piolo's dropped in pace a bit in the recently concluded DZMM Takbo Para sa Kalikasan 10k run. His time? 49:37. Still, an excellent sub-50 finish.
Donna Larazzabal a.k.a. Donna Cruz. She's been running even before the boom started. Her recent CenturyTuna 21k finish time speaks for itself: 2:04:38.
Carlos Agasi. I saw him along km19 in the recent Unilab 21k run. 2:22:41.
Sen. Pia Cayetano. I'd bet on her if there was a race for senators. She'll definitely top it. Her recent race was at the DZMM 10k run wherein she coasted to a sub-60 finish: 59:48. Oh, did I fail to mention that she's a triathlete as well?
Fernando Zobel. Representing the Ayala clan, this guy is just amazingly fast for his age. Condura 21k: 1:52:05. CenturyTuna 21k: 1:55:54. Galeng!
Lance Gokongwei. Not to be outdone is JG Summit's rep who had a decent 21k finish in the CenturyTuna run: 2:19:37.
Tessa Valdes. Don't be fooled by her eccentric running attire. She's fast! CenturyTuna 21k: 2:26 (chip time).
Derek Ramsay. He ran 5k in the CenturyTuna run. I couldn't find his race result but I saw on TV that he mentioned he got lost along the route. Hmmm....
Aga Muhlach. Yup, even the former Bagets star has joined the fray, coasting to a 1:11:12 Unilab 10k finish.
For those avid Hollywood fans out there, here's a full list. Notable celebrities in last year's NYC Marathon:
Edward Norton. 2009 NYC Marathon. 3:48:01. Milo Elims panis!
Alanis Morissette. 2009 NYC Marathon. 4:28:45.
For now, I can safely say that I can do a sub-Lance 21k and a sub-Aga 10k.
How about you?
