I last got some Zumba workout done close to two months ago.  You can imagine my excitement when I received an email notifying me that Zorro was hosting a free Zumba session! The first thing I did was message my friend Shami to let her know that we were going to be attending this do come rain or shine.  Come Saturday, I was there 30 minutes late and Shami was right on time; shame on me!

We clocked in a good hour of different music genres and danced the morning away.  I was in my zone; dancing makes me happy!

The outing would be incomplete without a selfie with Zorro.  He’s really good at his craft.  The event was mainly to support the underprivileged so people came through with donations of any sort including but not limited to money, clothing and groceries.  I donated a few clothes that don’t fit anymore thanks to all this running I do.

Goofing around 🙂

It’s always great to do something different every now and again, even better if your friends can come along.

What fitness fun did you get up to this weekend?

The Life Colour Run

The number 1 reason I’m going to attend this colour run is because it’s in my neighbourhood and I have zero excuses not to show up!  I’m going to register for the 5K run mainly because I did my 21K just last weekend my body needs a break!

See you at the colour run!

Old Mutual Harare Marathon

One of my new year goals is to run at least 3 half marathons this year.  I know, that’s pretty intense considering I only ran my first half marathon just last month.  The idea is to push my body to the limits and this will certainly do so.  I for one am disappointed with the start time because it’s very hot lately and by 6am my body doesn’t do very well with running, I’m more of a just before the sun comes out runner but I guess I’ll have to make a plan!

Mark your calendar and save the date, will see you on Sunday!

The GloRun

The GloRun is a youth initiative that started last year. It’s a 5km glow in the dark night run that is then followed with a Glow Party. (yes, you read right, Issa Party!!) Last year it was in aid of Magis Zimbabwe Pilgrims who were raising funds to go to the World Youth Day in Poland. After the success of last year, where over 600 tickets were sold in 3 weeks, we decided to continue and have managed to maintain the interest of our previous sponsors and gained a few in the process.

This year The GloRun is in aid of KidzCan Zimbabwe and we would love to raise as much as possible for this worthy cause. The run is on the 19th of August 2017.


The GloRun is being held at The Country Club in Newlands starting at 5:30 pm with registrations at theglow painting booth.  GloRun participants then go under a UV light to activate the paint and will do a short dance warm up around 6 or 6:30pm then start a 5km (9 hole run) around the golf course.

After completion GloRun participants join a glow in the dark foam party with the resident DJ Smith.

ZiFM Stereo is the media partner for this event and they will also be partnering with KidzCan to celebrate Zi@5!

You already know I love all things fitness and I will be at the GloRun party.  It will be my first time attending this event and I am super excited! I am always happy to be part of a worthy cause and I hope you will join me next Saturday for lots of fun, selfies and fitness.

Dare To Skip!

Welcome to the second part of the Winter Challenge.  I know a lot of you are relieved that we don’t have to run every day anymore.  Here is the breakdown for this month’s challenge, sit tight and grab some pen and paper it’s going to be exciting!

1.Floor Work

Make sure you invest in a pair of shoes that has a firm grip, you do not want to trip and fall during your routines. Don’t you just love that there is Rest Day on Saturday and Sunday?

2. Skipping Challenge

Be mindful of where you skip from. Skipping exercise should NOT be done on a carpeted surface or stone or asphalt surface. You should do the exercise on shock-absorbing surfaces, preferably wooden floors or other smooth surfaces to avoid tripping or rubbing, which can lead to injuries.

I also strongly advise that you wear a pair of trainers when you do your skipping.  Do not skip barefoot!  The challenge will be in reverse, we will start from Day 30 making our way to Day 1.  Get ready to sweat buckets!

3. Running

This month we will be running twice a week.  Sunday for #JustDoItSunday 5K and Wednesday for a 3K run.

Nyasha did us all a huge favour and put the information on a very neat spreadsheet.  I suggest you print it, stick it on your fridge, kitchen cupboard, bathroom mirror, heck even stick it on your forehead if it will help you with remembering that you have work to do!

All the best in the July Challenge.  You will get very hungry this month, skipping does that to you BUT please make sure you have a healthy and filling breakfast.  Stay hydrated and make sure you prepare your own meals as often as you can.  You can do this!  If you could run for the most part of June, what’s a few skips in July?

For information on the benefits of skipping please read the link over here.
