The Beirut Marathon Association has opened two extra days for registration for an exceptionally awesome lady, Sarah el Khatib. Sarah was at TEDxLAU this year and delivered an inspiring talk on her fight with cancer, before she died two weeks later. I will be at the Beirut Marathon this year just like every year, and I will be running for Sarah.

For those who missed the deadline and still want to register, here’s a [link] to do so.

ABAAD and Esposa Beirut are asking female participants in the Beirut International Marathon to participate and run the 10KM fun run in a wedding dress in order to raise awareness on early and forced marriages in Lebanon and the Middle East and North Africa region. That’s a pretty cool and fun idea. I just hope women will be able to find cheap wedding dresses.

I think she deserves the win as she was the most beautiful among all contestants. However, she doesn’t look like Georgina Rizk like some people are suggesting online. Sally will represent Lebanon at the Miss World 2014 contest in London on December 14th and at Miss Universe contest in Doral on January 25th.

Before Sally was announced a winner, Miss Lebanon 2013 Karen Ghrawi slipped and fell on stage but she wasn’t hurt in the process.

Here’s what the new Miss Lebanon had to say about her projects and the importance of social media after she won, which is pretty much the same cliché we hear every year. Speaking of social media, LBCI should consider adding the contestants’ social media accounts somewhere because they are always impossible to find.

We desperately needs more bikes and bike lanes in Lebanon to cut down the pollution and the traffic.
