Sweat in the City: Glow Up

Posted on February 13, 2019 by under Zumba.    

These next few pictures are from the first major Zumba event of 2019, Sweat in the City: Glow Up! It’s kind of a reprise of Joel and Sarah’s super successful Sweat in the City event last summer.

I didn’t take a lot of pictures because I didn’t want to have to keep track of my phone (or risk losing it) so most of these pics are courtesy of other people.

They did a blacklight/glow in the dark theme this time.

I think Mara (middle) had the best outfit, hands down.

Just a silly pic of me with Rose and Amanda.

Fun group photo with local ZINs. (In case you were wondering, ZINs are Zumba instructors who are members of the Zumba Instructor Network.)

I didn’t have to buy a special outfit for this event because I found I had stuff in my closet that actually glowed in the dark. It was a good thing too because I didn’t really have time to buy stuff.

Here’s a pic of me and Brynden. Her shirt was bright!

It was a sea of bright, glowing, colorful bodies!

Here’s a pic of Amanda, Charis, and me that we took while we were waiting for our tacos at the restaurant next door after the Zumba party. We worked up an appetite! Two hours of non-stop dancing will do that. LOL.

Here’s a pic of my tacos. Yum!

I earned my tacos (and my Churn and Burn — more on this in a bit) that night. Joel and Sarah know how to throw a great party! I was bummed we didn’t get commemorative shirts this year but, other than that, I thought this event was even better than the last one. We actually had a live DJ (DJ Hashtag). Sweat in the City just keeps getting better and better!

Since Amanda and I live pretty close to one another, we decided to carpool to the event. The carne asada tacos were super spicy that night so we thought, even though it was freezing, it would be a good idea to stop for ice cream on the way home. Churn and Burn is on the way home and they’re open late — and Amanda had never been there! The stars just happened to align. Anyway, I figured I burned enough calories that day between my two Zumba classes in the morning, pickleball in the afternoon, and the two hours of dancing at Sweat in the City that I could enjoy some ice cream guilt-free. Actually, what am I talking about. I never need justification to eat junk. I enjoy all my foods guilt-free. LOL.

It was such a blast! I can’t wait until we do this again. Great job, Joel and Sarah!
