It takes guts to be the only lady with her hair covered – lots of our fans can attest to the challenge of being the lone wrapper in a community where no one’s familiar with the concept. Rahaf Khatib (above) lives this challenge every day! You may recognize her from our feature of her on the Wrapunzel store Facebook page. Rahaf is making history as the first covered runner to appear on the cover of Women’s Running Magazine! Check out this article to see the cover photo and read more about the reactions she got!

The Wrapunzel staff loves to exercise covered, too! Check out Naomi Herzog’s tutorial for a running tichel, and Andrea’s blog post of tichel solutions for bicyclists. Covering your hair and staying in shape can definitely go hand-in-hand!

  1. I do not cover full-time and I do not run, but I have seen Muslim women running with those caps made of a light elastic material which can be used as underscarves, too. There are caps which cover only your hair (like the one shown in Naomi’s photo) and others that cover the neck, too.

    Naomi, I am just curious: it looks like you are running in a skirt. Are you? Do you find it difficult? (But it does look nice on you.)

  2. I am still the only one in 3 Jewish communities and a large area, well not large like your area wrapping. Sometimes I don’t know why I am being stared at. I still get attitude from other Jews, even orthodox. It is easier on me now. I just can’t wair a keeper with a ball cap and the kids get a kick out of the skirt over the pants at the ranch HA!HA!

  3. No guts gust a Mitzvah ti Hashem. I mostly don’t realize when I am being starred at. I live in my world. I think I will tell you a story. I won’t go into why but a pain center had me on more opiate drugs then a person should be aloud to take 12 yrs. Five months ago my doctor of 30 years told me my intestines had come to a stop and I could not have back surgery or a pain simulator put in my back. That day with out asking any I decided to quit all the drugs and deal with the pain raw. My goal was to be clean for Rash ha-Shanah. I spent 3 months stepping down off the heave stuff then the 1st of September came I bit the bullet and cold turkied the rest . I went done for the count did the D Ts as they say.I held on to to G-d . I came out the other side I now have almost 2 months. I am struggling to get my body in shape. I am almost 68. I deal with the pain that was medicated without drugs and the worst of it now have to eat real food and at home because I have also just been told I have Celiac and it has been medicated. I move through all this with the close relationship I have with Hashem and I cried most of the way through the Rosh ha-Shanah service. The celiac reared it’s head on the 10th day off the drugs. I was in the in the hospital several times no doctors could find the the reason for the extreme pain. Then a women I befriend shoot I found her under a tree in the parking lot in her van on Shabos morning. Rifka had just come across the country from New Your in four days.She came from Israel to work for a year then go back. Rifka is a nurse 3 or 4 weeks into the diagnoses ( she was with me most of the time she noticed I was having reactions to foods and said I should get a celaic blood test. The test takes a week and more to get back but I read the internet and changed my diet then. The pain started calming down. The test came full blown celiac. I met Rifka some would say quit by chance. There are no chance meetings. Oh I forgot to tell you that Rifka is an R.N. who took a plane from Iareal then drove all the way across the United States to a small town to save my life. There is not a day that in my world that I don’t say thank you. When I notice some one staring at me I smile and say thank you To Hashem for my Conversion and for sending this Angle to save my life. You may share this if you like or not. Love to all Tizpporah
