Shape (Singapore) - - Men In Shape -

In 2011, Zac took part in the Pe­nang half marathon with­out train­ing for it. He ran fast for the first 10km, and then limped his way to

the end. “Hav­ing some­one to lead me would have helped me man­age my pace at that time,” says the 33-year-old. “The ex­pe­ri­ence made me re­alise that I wan­teed to do the same for oth­ers.”

This is Zac’s first time as a Shape Run pacer. I en­joy run­ning be­cause… It’s me-time, plus I can do it any­time, any­where.

Women who run are… In­spir­ing. They ex­hibit strength in mind and body. The first thing I no­tice about a fe­male run­ner is… Her form. One look and I

can tell whether she’s a strong run­ner or not. Sporty women are sexy be­cause… They’ve got a nat­u­rally healthy, sun-kissed glow. An ac­tive lifestyle also shows that she cares about her­self. My best ad­vice to a first-time run­ner is… Tackle the race one kilo­me­tre at a

time. Fo­cus on short-term achieve­ments like the next wa­ter point!
