This is where it all started out, a humble blog. Feel free to have a nose around the posts from the past four years.

Use the category tabs to help you find information about various aspects of running as a plus sized runner or click here for a selection of my all time favourite blog posts or perhaps you want to read through some of my race reports?

Do not forget to leave a comment on the posts that inspire or interest you and we love it when you share our posts too, so get liking and retweeting.
