My real name is Farah, however my close friends and family call me Fairy. Hence, Run Fairy Run. I am a thirty-something woman from Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, who has discovered the love of running after being sedentary for so long.
How did I start running?
After I spent most of 2010 losing weight and getting back into shape, I entered my first 5km run in April 2011. Since then I’ve not stopped and have turned running into a habit. Who knew that it could be so… addictive?
The purpose of this blog
I initially setup this running blog to share my personal experiences with non-runner friends who are intrigued and to exchange tales with runner friends for whom I have great respect. If you’re a back-of-the-packer like me or just enjoy a good running-related story, then this blog may interest you. I’m not technical, I keep it real and just tell it like it is.
As time went on, I felt the need to share the stories of others (particularly women) who are extraordinary in running, hence a segment called “Inspiring Women Who Run” was born. I also review running events and gears which are of interest to me.
I absolutely love writing, especially when it is done to invoke running inspiration. My dream is to one day have my writings published in a reputable running-related magazine and online publication. Some day!

I first picked up running in 2011 after losing 20% of my old weight through playing dance and fitness video games. My favourite running mantra these days is “MAKE IT COUNT!”
