Women’s Running Cover Features Hijabi Woman

Awesome.

Screen Shot 2016-09-22 at 1.48.18 PMThere’s plenty of negative stories out there right now, so let’s cast a tiny bit of light into the darkness with this Women’s Running cover.

That’s Rahaf Khatib, a runner who created the Instagram account Run Like a Hijabi to inspire people who cover to stay fit and to help cast aside stereotypes about Muslim women.

According to Women’s Running, Khatib is the first Hijabi woman to grace the cover of a health or fitness magazine in the United States. That’s pretty f-ing cool.
