Going out on a date is sometimes a luxury for celebrity couples, especially when they’re active in their respective careers.
This is true for Maja Salvador and Matteo Guidicelli who are doing separate projects in showbiz. Maja’s busy nowadays with a movie she’s doing for Star Magic; Matteo is preparing for his upcoming TV show and trains for future triathlon events.
Since Maja’s boyfriend is a triathlete, running together sometimes becomes their “date plan” instead of dining out and watching a movie.
“Kasi wala na kaming time para [manood ng] movie,” the Thelma actress tells PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview.
“Minsan nagkikita lang kami, nagde-decide na lang kami na mag-workout or samahan ko siya sa training, so pati ako napapatakbo.”
Spending time together through running not only saves money. For Maja, it also benefits their health.
“Siyempre, maganda ‘yon. At least kaming dalawa, e, parehas na fit at saka healthy,” she states with a smile.
The young Kapamilya actress is also glad that her boyfriend has found a new sports after quitting his first love, kart racing.
Maja says about Matteo, “Ngayon talaga sobrang conscious na siya sa health niya, e. Kasi minsan tabain siya.”
Since her boyfriend actively participates in different triathlon events, will Maja join Matteo in the future?
“Fun run siguro!” Maja blurts out laughing.
“Ang triathlon, parang hindi pa kaya. Kasi kung sasali ka ng triathlon, kailangan mo ng matinding training.
“Hindi lang naman kasi running ‘yan, e. May swimming din ‘yan, ‘tapos magba-bike ka pa ng mga ilang kilometers.”
She can join Matteo in his next triathlon events, but in a different way. Maja says with smile, “Doon na lang ako [sa audience]. Magbi-video na lang ako, using my GE camera, habang tumatakbo siya!”
