Enough about me read up on this beautiful runner below. TBT! 

Q. Tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do for a living?

My name is Rawan Al Sadi, I am 22 years old, Jordanian living in Dubai. I am a co-founder of a modest fashion line called Rozan Designs and I work as an investment consultant for a company named Respect. I am also a basketball player playing with my university team. 

Q. How do you balance your exercise regime and your professional life?

Exercising and running are my “Me “time, they keep me focused and relaxed which is amazing for my career that’s why I make sure to never miss them. I usually go for a run after work hours, around 11 pm and I also join a running group (Nike Running Club) and that keeps me motivated and committed.

Q. What motivates you to go out there, when you do not feel like it?

When I don’t feel like it, I think of how I feel after I finish a run, that always keeps me going. And it never hurts to have a new gear for extra motivation.

Q. What is the longest distance you have ran?

Q. What gives you the confidence to run in the streets?
I feel empowered by people’s energy, and when people stare I run faster and I run better.

Q. What do you think about the lack of exercise among the youth?
It’s really shameful and dangerous.

Q. What was your best running experience?

Running my first 10K race without stopping and finishing 5K race in less than 30 Minutes.

Q. What was your worst running experience?

I hate when I feel lightheaded after a run and it happened twice.

Q. How do you push through the pain?

Mental chanting of “I can do it and I feel no pain”

Q. What advice can you give somebody who wants to start running?

The only person you are doing this for is yourself, never give up on yourself.

Q. Which Social media sites are you on and how can one follow you?

My best running shoes is ..Nike flyknit

I love running ..because it’s liberating.

Injury is ..an obstacle 

My body… is my biggest asset

My running playlist has The Script, Bieber, Shakira, Beyoncé, and some Arabic songs.

I hate running when.. never .. I don’t hate running 

Pain is.. a proof that I am pushing myself.

The road.. Is my companion

Sweat.. is victory

In future, I would like to run.. around the world 

Indie means freedom.

I do not like runners who don’t smile back when we are crossing roads.
