Welcome to my blog

Hello and welcome. My blog focuses mostly on running but I will occasionally blog about anything that I feel would be a great topic to share.

My mission is to show that wearing a hijab is not a barrier to being physically active. I want to encourage women to get outdoors and be active, in particular those women who for cultural reasons feel that they can’t be active because of how they dress.

Push yourself because no one else is going to do it for you!
