Xian Lim was one of the Star Magic artists who participated in the 12K sunset run for Sunpiology last November 25. It was a new record for him in terms of keeping himself physically fit. “Masaya siya kasi last time na sinalihan ko 10K. So it’s fulfilling kasi parang iniisip mo hindi mo magagawa. Pero in the end, eto na finally. Kaya nung nakita ko finish line buhos na lahat [sa pagtakbo ko]. I finished in one hour and 11 minutes,” said Xian in an interview with Push.com.ph.
Despite his busy schedule, the Ina Kapatid Anak star shared that running has become a part of his daily routine. “I’ve been doing fun run ever since. And back in high school, nag-track [and field] ako. Pero siyempre iba pa rin yun, kasi kapag wala kang training nawawala naman lahat yun. Ngayon nababalik ko na kasi everyday tumatakbo ako. I run on my own in Ultra.”
Xian admitted though that there have been times that he gets to run with rumored girlfriend Kim Chiu. One such instance can be seen in his Instagram photo taken during one of the Kapamilya artists’ tour in the States. “Oo, nagsimula ‘yan kay Matteo (Guidicelli). Nung nag-Hawaii kami last Star Magic show. Si Matteo adik siya sa pagtakbo ‘di ba? So kasama niya si Maja Salvador [noon]. Si Maja damay kay Kim. Ako nadamay na rin sa pagtakbo. Although tumatakbo na rin talaga ako, nakakatuwa siyempre it’s another way of bonding. Hindi na yung parang puro work.”
Is he a good influence on Kim in terms of taking good care of her health and fitness? “Nakakaktuwa [na na-i-influence mo yung ibang tao sa pagktakbo]. Pero before pa kami nagkakakilala tumatakbo na rin siya (Kim). Active na rin siya in sports.” Xian added that one of his goals for 2013 is to try extreme sports or other adventures that he had never done before.
