In life, Hannah says she has two passions: running and writing.

A blessing that comes with being a motivated athlete is my tendency to stick to and follow time schedules.
I am not someone who can go into a day with no plan of what I want to achieve, or get done.
I need to know as soon as I wake up what I am doing that day and when it is being done. I know, if this is done,
I will be able to fit everything in, says Hannah.
