x THE WMN : Ncumisa Pongoma

Thursday, August 06, 2020

Was it a friday evening when I met Ncum? or was it before that friday?? It doesn't matter though, because over the time that I have known her. She has been an inspiration to me... 

It is due to covid-19 that I decided to introduce video interviews into the #RunRevolution platform. If you are familiar with the community, you would know that features on the blog, where reminiscent of a magazine interview. Much like Dr. Nandi's interview
However, the New Normal is here and so is the technology. Going forward expect more video interviews and more diversity on this platform. 

Ncumisa is not a stranger to the platform, in 2019 she did an instagram takeover. Showing us a day in her active life...

I had to collaborate with her for women's month 2020. 

We all need some fitness motivation, especially during Lockdown. Ncumisa has been inspiring me with all her workout videos.  So we had a chat over IG Live about her fitness journey, being vegan, we also discussed issues affecting women in sports. 

It was an insightful conversation and you can view it on the YouTube video below. 

Come to think of it, where are the August winds?
