How much is too much Zumba?

    One of the perks of photography is the awesome people I get to meet along the way! What's great is that I can meet a potential client just about anywhere. For me being a photographer means I need to keep in tip-top shape. (Where is this going? I know you're wondering. I promise I have a point!) If I were to count how many squats or lunges I do in one photo session, I would probably surprise a lot of people - including myself! To help keep up with my fitness and to keep my mind from getting bored, I hopped on the Zumba train. And I have loved every minute of it!

    Through these classes I have met such wonderful people including Adrienne Thoman, a local South Central PA Zumba instructor. Adrienne has so much energy I bet she could outlast the Energizer bunny! Not only is she a firecracker during Zumba class, she carries that inspiration outside of class by supporting a number of charitable causes. How in the world does she balance a full-time job, Zumba classes, and all of her charitable causes? She is certainly someone to look up to!

    When Adrienne had mentioned she was hosting a Zumbathon for ALS. My first thought was - what the heck is a Zumbathon? For those of you who don't know, it's a two hour marathon of Zumba taught by a variety of instructors. Yikes! When I learned that Adrienne was holding this Zumbathon to raise money for a family member who lost his battle with ALS, I couldn't help but donate to her cause.  

    With everything I do I try to come up with a lesson or a takeaway. I learned that the community of Zumba instructors are tightly knit and very supportive. If you entered the Zumbathon in a bad mood, you were not leaving in a bad mood, but you were definitely leaving sweaty! We ended up raising $400 towards #TeamPerry that evening. It was worth all the sweat and sore muscles! So how much is too much Zumba? I can't say there will ever be too much. Here are some photographs from this fun event!
