ParkRun Harare

My Relationship With Food

I used to have a very dysfunctional relationship with food until I realised that food was actually not the enemy.  I went on extreme diets at the start of my journey.  I remember I went through a phase where I would not eat a filling supper and settle for a fruit or a small tin…

My Pieces Of Running Gear

I have a dream, to one day own at least half the running gear on my Pinterest Board!  The running gear is sassy, colourful and definitely inspiring.  Why would I not want to go out for a run when I am dressed to the nines like that?  When I started running looking good was the last…

Why You Should Keep A Fitness Journal

I started using a fitness journal at the start of this year.  I don’t recall who introduced me to it but once I do I will thank them profusely.  Owning a fitness journal has been one of the best things that has happened to me so far.  I wish I had known about it earlier…

Running & Photography

Just before the winter came in full swing, towards the end of the month of May, Fitness Bae introduced us to the the Winter Challenge. When she told us about it I thought it would be fairly easy. Running 2K a day when you are used to running 4K to 5K was obviously going to be…

Every woman wants a man who can cook; okay I lie, I love a man who can cook so I will speak for myself on this one.  Imagine getting home to a meal prepared with nothing but tender loving care by your one and only.  Chef Takura (hello beard gang) took some time out to share spinets…

3 Quality Calisthenics Lessons

The first question I get when the word calisthenics rolls off my tongue is, “What is that?” with a hint of skepticism. I do not blame people for being skeptical because calisthenics is pretty mysterious in its nature. The word itself is of Greek origin and is a combination of two words. ‘Kalos’ which means…
