It has been exactly a year and 18 days since I last posted anything on this blog. Feels like we have so much catching up to do but, I’ll just fill you in on some of the year’s highlights.
We got 2013 off to a great start by promoting iRunThis in Northampton, England thanks to our girl Ashlee. She organized a photoshoot, showed off some t-shirts and told people about the brand. The response was good and, Northampton will be a destination in the future.
In March we teamed up with Namibian singer, Mushe in his quest to win the title of Best Male Artist of the Year at the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMA’s).
We would spend the next few weeks urging people to vote for him and as a result, not only did he win the much coveted Best Male Artist of the Year award, he also won Song of the Year, Radio Song of the Year, Best Afro Pop, Best Kwaito, and Best Single awards to make it six awards in total on what was a memorable night.

In April we celebrated our new t-shirt design by having a “Sharing” competition on Facebook. It wasn’t a big event but, it was the first competition that we ran and worth noting. The winner walked away with the new design making her the first one to own it.
In June we released our first piece of winter clothing in the form of the iRT Varsity Jacket which sold out much faster than expected.
In July we met Shawty-P, a talented young artist. We looked at some of her work and it just reignited that desire in us to showcase talented Namibians for the world to see. You can see her work on her facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pandeinges-Drawings/470383536404427
In November, we showed our support for the awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancers by running a Movember competition. Participants would have to upload a picture of themselves rocking their moustache and push to get as many likes possible.
And then just recently we decided to make our website open to the public. It is still undergoing minor construction but, is ready for action. Have a look in your spare time, and don’t be shy to drop a suggestion. http://www.irunthis.net
The journey continues…………..
