Gilbert Takes Cover of Austin Fit MagazineApr 6, 2012
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; don’t let it catch you!”
His jovial personality and ability to immediately connect with individual runners has helped Gilbert’s 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.
