If you're running the "happiest 5km on the planet" next month, you might just spot former Miss Singapore Universe Lynn Tan in the race.

The 25-year-old is the ambassador for The Color Run Singapore, an untimed race where participants are sprinkled with coloured powder at every 1km interval.

My Paper speaks to Ms Tan about the race, her fitness regime and how she motivates herself.

What is your workout routine?
I try to run once or twice a week for half an hour, and lift light weights to tone up. I go for walks outside my house and maintain a healthy diet.

Why are fitness and exercise important?
I placed more emphasis on exercising when I joined the Miss Universe Singapore pageant as I wanted to win the Miss Body Beautiful award.

I think that being healthy allows you to enjoy all that life has to offer and live life to the fullest.

I believe that your physical well-being contributes to your mental state of mind; feeling slim and toned makes me feel more confident.

How do you motivate yourself to stick to your workout routine?
I look in the mirror and paint a mental picture of the body I would like to have before starting my exercise.

Do you have any favourite locations to exercise?
I like to run on a treadmill in air-conditioned places. Singapore is too hot and the recent haze (made it unhealthy to) run outside.

What precautions do you take when exercising?
I don't overdo it.



As the ambassador for The Color Run Singapore,  Lynn Tan hopes to raise awareness and funds for Project Happy Feet, which is a Singapore-based not-for-profit organisation set up to empower underprivileged youth and children in developing countries.

As the ambassador for The Color Run Singapore, what are your hopes for the event?
I hope that we will raise awareness and funds for Project Happy Feet, which is a Singapore-based not-for-profit organisation set up to empower underprivileged youth and children in developing countries.

Is this your first race? How are you preparing for it?
This is my second race. My first run was the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge last year. I haven't been (preparing for it any) differently.

How can The Color Run make an impact on Singaporeans' health and fitness?
As we are expecting 16,000 participants, a 5km run could be invigorating and refreshing for everyone.

For those who run regularly, it will be a breeze.

As for those who don't, perhaps they will enjoy it and it could inspire them to start their own exercise regimes.

Do you have any fitness tips for busy executives?
Watch your diet and weigh yourself once a week.

Be consistent with your exercise and get a workout buddy so that you can motivate each other.

Try to work out at a time when you have the most energy, because fitness experts say that (exercising at such a time will) yield the best results.

Quoting Mother Teresa paid off for Miss Lynn Tan who went on to win the Miss Universe Singapore title yesterday (Sunday) evening.

When a contest judge, local actress Rebecca Lim, asked her what her strongest selling point would be as Singapore’s ambassador, Miss Tan said: “I will be the modern Singapore woman, beautiful, strong and ready to stand for what I believe in.

Yet, I will hold on to my values that have brought me here.

She ended her answer with the quote from Mother Teresa: "Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal."
