    Anushay: Doing hard things is exciting

    Anushay: Doing hard things is exciting

    Anushay has always defined herself as an Academic but struggled to call herself an athlete. She moved to Canada from Pakistan and quickly became involved in the trail running community and with a bit of work is now both an athlete and an ultrarunner. 
    Anushay was inspired to go further and push her body and mind to complete her first 50km last summer. She has an amazing energy and will leave you feeling like doing hard things is exciting.

Love it

I have learned so much from Hilary and her guests! So many inspiring stories. The show has joined me through many long training runs this summer including my first 50k at Finlayson Arm!

Awesomely Canadian

This is a funny, insightful, and informative running podcast. Great to see some Canadian content with some inspiring stories. Also very relatable as a running parent of a toddler. Keep up the great work!
