Here's How You Can Get a Chance to Run with Matteo Guidicelli


How Matteo Started Running



As part of Saucony’s initiative to inspire more people to try and start running, he revealed that he never really liked running when he first started. “I used to run before when I was a racer but on a treadmill. I never really enjoyed running outdoors or running long. I started enjoying and loving it when I started triathlon 5 to 6 years ago,” he noted.

Despite being extremely busy with showbiz work from his up and coming show to Wheels TV and Single Single, sports activities like conquering the recently concluded Ironman 70.3 Asia Pacific Championship which consists of a 1.9km swim, 90km bike, and 21km run, and family restaurant business Trattoria Da Gianni, the Dolce Amore star still upholds an active lifestyle. He is even slated to do a sports show soon. When asked how he is able to balance his demanding taping and training schedule, he answered: “You really have to just prioritize what you do. Everything’s my priority though (laughs). But the thing is, when you have work, you just think about work. And when your work’s done, you give time to running. And once you make running a part of your lifestyle, everything becomes natural and it just goes with the flow.”

Matteo’s ultimate running essential



One piece of advice Matteo emphasized for those who want to start running is the importance of wearing the right pair of shoes specifically made for running. “Find a good pair of shoes because you don’t want to get injured. Saucony, the shoes, they’re just beautiful. Aside from how it looks, how it performs, you have so many different kinds to choose from for different kinds of runs, long runs, interval runs, tempo runs. So once you select your good pair of shoes, you’re gonna enjoy your runs better.”

How Matteo Guidicelli Started Running



With big projects this year from releasing his first solo album to being one of the leading actors in primetime television, Matteo still maintains his active lifestyle and his passion for running. Matteo shared with us his running stories and tips.

Q: When did you start running?

M: I started running maybe 5 to 6 years ago. I used to run before when I was a racer but on a treadmill. I never really enjoyed running outdoors or running long. I started enjoying and loving it when I started triathlon 5 to 6 years ago.

Q: How do you balance your taping and the training?

M: You really have to just prioritize what you do. Everything’s my priority though (laughs). But the thing is, when you have work, you just think about work. And when your work’s done, you give time to running. And once you make running a part of your lifestyle, everything becomes more normal, alam mo yon. But once it’s just exercise and you have to put it in your schedule, it’s gonna become too much effort, and it’s gonna be boring, it’s gonna be forceful. But if it becomes (part of) your lifestyle, it becomes natural and it just goes with the flow.

Q: How did Saucony’s mantra Find Your Strong motivate you to run better?

M: Oh it’s really nice. First of all, hashtag Find Your Strong. (It) makes people inspired. Looking for your ‘Strong’, sometimes you wake up in the morning, and ugh, I don’t wanna run, but when you read the phrase “Find Your Strong”, it just extra motivates you already.

Q: What’s your favorite running gear?

M: Saucony, the shoes, they’re just beautiful. Aside from how it looks, how it performs, you have so many different kinds to choose from for different kinds of runs, long runs, interval runs, tempo runs. And the technology of Saucony, how it’s developed, it’s number one. (My favorite running shoes is) the racing flats right now, the Type As or the Kinvara. But I love all the shoes. Like the Zealot, it’s one of my favorites also.

Q: What tips can you give to those people who want to start running?

M: Find a good pair of shoes because you don’t wanna get injured. Once you start getting injured, you’re gonna start complaining, you’re gonna start being lazy, you won’t run anymore. So once you select your good pair of shoes, and you start enjoying, you’re gonna enjoy your runs better. And find a good coach. Find a good team, a good bunch of friends, and then just enjoy running ‘cause running’s beautiful, and there’s so much to learn in running.
