Kim Chiu hasn't been a stranger to the gym since her Pinoy Big Brother days, but her role as triathlete Bianca in Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin seems to have taken her fitness game to a whole new level recently.
The actress was spotted at the Ironman 70.3 triathlon in Cebu City on Sunday, August 6, and she couldn't help but get a bit emotional.
"Right after the race, nakakaiyak pa rin talaga! Pero hindi all-out kasi nakahihiya [sa] maraming tao!!" she wrote in an Instagram post, probably still high on endorphins from her successful 21k run.
In another Instagram post by Kim's older sister Lakambini, Kim proudly showed off her Ironman medal.
Her Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin co-star Gerald Anderson was also spotted at the event, wishing her luck. We know they're just friends, but #Kimerald fans couldn't help but feel kilig over seeing these two together off-screen!
Preparing for a major triathlon such as Ironman is no easy feat. If her Instagram posts are any indication, Kim has made running part of her lifestyle. And it seems that nothing, not even being in unfamiliar territory, can stop her.
"Tried a crazy route yesterday morning!" she captioned her IG post after successfully running 16km in High Park in Toronto.
This isn't her first 21k run, though. Just a few weeks ago, Kim showed off her medal from the takbo.ph Runfest, which happens to be her third half-marathon.
"As the saying goes 'you'll never know unless you try,'" Kim wrote.
Kim also tries to mix up her fitness activities to keep her strong and flexible. She literally kicks ass!

And if there's one thing we can learn from @chinitaprincess, it's that nothing is impossible with a little help from your friends.
