I live in Buckinghamshire and I'm a pharmacist working in the pharmaceutical industry. I started running in 2017 as a complete beginner and ran my 1st half marathon within 6 months of starting.    I'm a runner who wears hijab and that in itself does mean I dress a bit differently when running, but my hijab has never been a barrier for me at all.    I'm not a super fast runner, but I train hard to achieve the running goals I set myself”   New episodes of the Tough Girl Podcast go live every Tuesday and Thursday at 7am UK time - Make sure you hit the subscribe button so you don’t miss out.    The tough girl podcast is sponsorship and ad free thanks to the monthly financial support of patrons.

Our Cultural Connection - See Us Outside, Episode 1
We all have our own profound connection to land and water that should be honored and respected, but all too often, dominant narratives of what it means to be an ‘outdoorsperson’ uplifts just one way to be outdoors. In the first episode of “See Us Outside,” Gabaccia talks with leaders from Brown Girl Surf and Charles Roundtree Bloom Project to help affirm the cultural connection to nature that exists for girls and women of color. _About the series: _ This special She Explores miniseries is made in collaboration with The Cairn Project, and made possible by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation. Host Gabaccia Moreno is our guide in exploring the unique relationships girls and young women of color have with the natural world and outdoor recreation. Through the voices and stories of leaders and participants from diverse outdoor organizations doing the work to help young people of color thrive in the outdoors, this four-part audio miniseries will highlight the joy, connection, and community these girls find in nature, as well as the importance of organizations doing the work to expand outdoor opportunities. This is inclusive of all cis and trans women and girls of color, as well as folks of all gender identities who feel comfortable in spaces that center women. That said, for the most part, when we talk about gender we most often do so in terms of those who are socialized as girls and women in a more heteronormative, binary way. Featured in this episode: Cristal Cisneros, Ki’Amber Thompson, and Mira Manickam-Shirley; _Voice memos included_ in this episode were submitted by Meggy Pyaneeandee and Arlene Huezo _Hosted by Gabaccia Moreno_ _Produced by Gabaccia Moreno, Noël Russell, and Gale Straub_ _A Production of __Ravel Media_ Resources: * The Cairn Project * Website | Instagram | Facebook * Organizations Highlighted * The Charles Roundtree Bloom Project: Website | Instagram * Brown Girl Surf: Website | Instagram | Facebook * Women's Wilderness: Website | Instagram | Facebook * Young Women Who Crush: Website | Instagram * Featured in this episode: * Cristal Cisneros * Ki’Amber Thompson * Mira Manickam-Shirley * Voice Memos Featured * Meggy Pyaneeandee | Instagram * Arlene | Instagram * Host: Gabaccia Moreno * Website | Instagram _All Four Episodes of See Us Outside Are Available Now Wherever You Listen to She Explores_ The opening See Us Outside Compilation includes the voices of Marinel De Jesus, Yakuta Poonawalla, Meggy Pyaneeandee, Fernanda Jardim, Arlene, Chi Pham, Denise Meeker and Doreen Wong and includes Spanish, French, Portuguese, Tagalog, Hindi, Vietnamese, Cantonese, and English. _Music by Joy Ike & Sita via MusicBed_ _Podcast Art by Susana Castro _ _@susdraws_
