Kayam Moosa

Tell us about yourself?

I’m a father of two and currently work as a Software Engineer.

When did your running journey start?

My running journey started in 2020 during lockdown. Like many others, it was a reason to keep myself physically and mentally fit during this period. With time, my interest and desire to run progressed, pushing me to set new targets for myself. Alhamdulillah in August 2021 I took part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon with other SJ runners.

Why have you decided to join the SJ Running team?

I’ve been running with SJ Running since its inception and during this time I received great support from Ali and Ariff. Coming this far in my running journey, I feel now is the time to give back to the community and especially help the new runners with their running goals.

Nadim Kapadia

Tell us about yourself?

My name is Nadim. I moved to the UK from Singapore with my family a little over two years ago, and currently work as a consultant within the digital transformation space.

When did your running journey start?

While I have been running since my school days, running was always a recreational, weekend activity to try and keep in shape. However, I started running more regularly during the recent lockdown, and the activities organized by the SJ Running Team, in particular the February 2021 winter running challenge motivated me to take running more seriously, explore longer distances and vary my running routine. Running has had a transformative impact for me, and has made me feel more focused, disciplined and alert.

Why have you decided to join the SJ Running team?

The SJ Running activities have been instrumental in motivating me through my running journey, and given the opportunity, I want to support the team in making running a more inclusive, widespread and enjoyable sport within our community. Quoting one of the greatest (and most inspirational) marathon runners, Eluid Kipchoge, “a running community is a happy community” and I believe there is so much running can do for ourselves (physically, mentally and spiritually), our families and our community.
