My role model/inspiration: Sir Mo Farah

A running barrier I overcame: My biggest barrier is actually in coaching runners and in particular, leading groups of Asian Muslim women who are generally reluctant to try physical activity and not used to participating in mixed sex activities.

My advice for new coaches? If you can connect with people and can inspire others then coaching is a rewarding and fulfilling career to pursue.
