It is bloody cold here in the UK. In fact, snowing and icy in many parts. And…. It is now just 2 weeks away from Xmas, so hardly the time to take up exercise you might think. But it just so happens I have well over 160 women around the UK (and a few further…

Running can often feel like a very odd past time especially while you are out the pounding the streets while other people are doing “normal” activities, and let’s not ignore the fact that many folk believe we are rather strange for participating in this sport all together.

I remember the first time I ever got spotted at a race by one of my followers, it was shortly after I started posting photos of myself, because up until that point “The Fat Girls Guide to Running” had been completely anonymous. It was a really funny moment, I was taking part in a race…
