Gerald Anderson reveals the most painful experience of his life

May has proven to be a very busy month for Gerald Anderson. Aside from the premiere of his new daytime soap Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin, the Kapamilya actor also competed in last week’s Subic Bay International Triathlon. Gerald admitted that after his experience in the L.A marathon last March, he wants to compete in more competitions abroad. 

“Honestly mayabang kasi ako eh so gusto ko talagang i-represent yung country ko sa ganung sport. Nung pumunta ako sa L.A marathon sobrang parang living a dream eh na suot ko pa yung flag ng PIlipinas at ang daming Pinoy na nag-ru-root para sa akin. Bata pa lang ako yun yung pangarap ko.  Pero nakakahiya sabihin kasi ang daming magagaling na Pilipino na gustong mag-represent ng bansa. Siguro kung wala lang akong taping at shooting susubukan ko (laughs) but magaling yung mga nag-re-represent para sa atin,” he said. 

Gerald also shared what it felt like to run a full marathon in the States. 

“Yun ang pinakamasakit na nagawa ko sa buong buhay ko na hindi ko ma-explain. Hindi ako makalakad pagkatapos. Hindi ako makakain. Akala ko kakain ako ng marami ‘pag tumakbo ako ng ganun kalayo. But yung experience, yung mga taong nakilala ko habang tumatakbo, yung nakikita ko at nararamdaman ko hindi ko ipagpapalit kahit saan. If may chance ulit I’ll do a full marathon ulit pero mas nag-fo-focus ako ngayon sa triathlon,” he revealed. 

After getting into serious triathlon training last year, Gerald said he wants to make a lifetime commitment to the sport already. 

“Lifestyle na siya. I’m sure lifestyle para sa aming lahat. Personal goal ko na makapag-inspire ng mga tao na mag-exercise and magkaroon ng happy and healthy lifestyle,” he added. 

In Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin, Gerald is once again competing onscreen with fellow triathlete Jake Cuenca, which he said he always looks forward to. 

“Ang masasabi ko lang pag pinagsama niyo kami ni Jake it’s always a showdown kasi bawat eksena kahit gaano ka-simple, gaano kaliit or laki, gusto ko ibigay lahat. Eh si Jake gusto rin ibigay 110%. Eh ako yung tipong magbibigay ng 112% and then magbibigay siya ng 115% so it’s always a showdown sa bawat eksena pag magkasama kami. Hindi niyo talaga itatapon dahil alam mo at the end of the day ginawa namin ang lahat para quality ang mapapanuod niyo. Alam ko when it’s time for Jake to shine susuportahan ko siya. Sana Maulit Muli pa lang I feed off Jake’s energy and Tayong Dalawa, ganun and dito sa show ganun din,” he remarked.
