Covid-19 Chronicles

Thoughts while I run through this quarantine 🦠 People are cooking and doing laundry more. I smell it and it’s glorious! 👉🏽At first, like the first week, people were out smiling and waving. Typical for us Michigan folks. But now, ppl are just mad or sad and haven’t been as upbeat. Understandably so. I wave and smile regardless. #smilingissunnah 👉🏽 I can’t go out as early as I’d like since I’m staying up late. Then have to fed kids, [...]

London Marathon 2018

If anyone is thinking of Running this epic marathon, to them I say, just do it! This was a very close second to my favorite marathon, Boston. The crowds and energy were very similar to the incredible day I ran Boston. Parts of the course were quiet in which I was thankful to have my headphones on to listen to music. But for the most part, the crowds and high energy were just amazing. The streets of Europe are narrow [...]

Boston Dream Come True

Every runner has heard of The Boston Marathon. It’s every runners dream to run this prestigious, oldest, World Major.

Speed isn’t really a major factor for me I run for the experience and for the thrill of it. So I kinda put Boston in the back burner till that fire sparks in me where I can [...]

How it all began…

Running…my form of “Da3wah” I entered the children’s Museum on Sunday November 8th with my kids and husband, just one day after running the Monumental Marathon. (My fourth marathon). We walked through the World Religions gallery and a huge sign at the beginning of this exuberant gallery was a sign that read “When we learn about the religions of our neighbors, we’re better able to respect and communicate with one anther” Made me think to myself about the whole Runner’s [...]
