In the heart of 2012, fate led me to reconnect with an old school friend who ignited my passion for running once more. It was then that I laced up my sneakers and embarked on my official running journey in 2013, starting with a 5K race. From that moment onward, there was no turning back.

Over the years, I’ve conquered various milestones: completing a full marathon, conquering more than 10 half marathons, participating in 2 duathlons, and countless 10Ks and 5Ks. Each step fueled my determination, pushing me to new limits.

In 2017, I joined the Dubai Creek Striders (DCS), a community that would shape my running philosophy. With every stride, I learned that when doubts cloud your mind, it’s your heart that should lead the way. Fridays became my sanctuary for long runs, Mondays for speed sessions, and Wednesdays for interval training—all alongside my fellow club members.

As a woman, I felt a responsibility to inspire other women to embrace running. DCS provided the perfect platform, and I eagerly stepped up to lead the 6:30K pace group, affectionately known as the Social Group then. Guiding others toward their own running achievements became my purpose.

Yet, amidst all the personal victories, nothing has been as fulfilling as giving back to my community. Representing Dubai Creek Striders in the most inspiring way, I’ve witnessed the transformative power of running—a force that unites hearts, strengthens bodies, and uplifts spirits.

So, here’s to the miles we’ve covered, the camaraderie we’ve shared, and the impact we’ve made. My running journey isn’t just about races; it’s about leaving footprints of inspiration wherever I go. 🏃‍♀️💙

There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.”

Every time I run it's with the mindset that if I die at this race, it's OK."

I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”

Never underestimate the power that one good workout can have on your mind. Keeping the dream alive is half the battle.”

The world is actually full of challenges and we need to challenge ourselves. I took a challenge to run that fast. It consumes a lot of energy especially mentally. But I took myself and accepted to be challenged and I challenged the time.”
