In 2018 one of my major goals for the Too Fat to Run movement was to showcase more of our wonderful community of runners….because for as much as I front up this brand, it so isn’t about me anymore. Of course, we have our runner of the month feature but I didn’t think this went…

Just like I have never been a great runner, I have never been too good at swimming either. I mean I learned to run like everyone else did as a kid, and I was happy enough splashing around in my local pool and at the seaside…but as I progressed into adulthood it became clear I…

Let me ask you a question? When did you go on your first diet and why? Can you even remember? For me, it is all a bit blurry. I can remember when I was still going to dance school at the age or 10 or 11 hearing the mums of other children discussing our changing…

My first ever 10K race was on the mean streets of London back in 2006, so whenever I get an opportunity to reenact that I take it…especially if it involves novelty winter characters like the Winter Run Series races do. I did my first Winter Run in 2015 and fell in love…each year I enjoy…

The runner of the month feature has always brought me enormous joy, being able to showcase runners from all over the place. When I get to showcase an awesome runner who I have been lucky enough to meet in the flesh it makes me even happier. So this month we welcome 38 year old Jo…

This time of year is always a bit grim in the UK right?…and I always long for a bit of winter sun, a break…a couple of days away from the big smoke to re-energise myself…it’s not so much the cold as the lack of sun. What can I say? I am a sunshine and margaritas…

I am a proud Londoner. One of those rare people that have actually lived here their whole life, coming from parents who had too. I know, I know…we do exist ha ha So, yeah I am a proud Londoner and I ADORE the London Marathon. It hasn’t always been the case though because for a large…

Like many people I know…I HATE FEET…especially other peoples, with the exception of small children that is. I don’t like looking at them, I don’t like thinking about them…and heck I sure as hell don’t like touching them, which is why I go for a monthly pedicure. But even then I dismay at the fact…

I have always enjoyed swimming, went a lot as a kid at school and during the summer holidays. Was never a strong swimmer but just reasonably confident in the water….and loved the hot toast afterwards (anyone else get hot buttery toast after swimming or was it just an East End thing?) During my twenties when my…

The irony of a very slow runner reviewing food which is marketed to help you go faster is not lost on me, however I came across Kate Percy at a conference a few years ago and she was so passionate about her product, it always stuck with me as a brand, and it has been…
