Gilbert on Cover of Austin Fit Magazine!
The slogan Run With Joy serves as the motto for the group, and Tuhabonye inserts much of his Burundian roots into the training. One can find his herd running all across town, sometimes singing African chants at the Austin High track: The lion is coming; dont let it catch you! His jovial personality and ability to immediately connect with individual runners has helped Gilberts Gazelles grow into one of the most recognizable brands in the fitness community. The company, which started out with just three women shortly after Tuhabonye won the Capitol 10,000 in 2002, will celebrate its tenth year anniversary in April 2012.

This Voice in My Heart
Co-written with Gary Brozek, This Voice in My Heart: A Genocide Survivor's Story of Escape, Faith, and Forgiveness is Gilbert Tuhabonye's tale of triumph in his own words.
More than just an autobiography, this must-read book recounts Gilbert's journey from holocaust in his native Burundi to hero in his adopted homeland. Full of grace and dignity, this is a story like no other, a story that must not be forgotten.
"This Voice in My Heart" is available now at major book stores and amazon.com.
