As we continue our Too Fat to Run Clubhouse member blog takeover, todays post is one which I think is going to help a lot of runners out there. I am a massive fan of A-B runs, and when marathon training it is often the ONLY way I can fit in the longer runs. I think…

To celebrate International Women’s Day on social media we are showcasing women from our running community using the hashtag #thisiswhatarunnerlookslike as there has been so much controversy this week about diversity and representation in the sport of running. This month we are also welcoming different clubhouse members to share their stories, their reasons for running, what…

As International Women’s day approaches I have decided that throughout the month of March we will have a Too Fat To Run? Blog takeover, where members of The Clubhouse our awesome online running club for plus size women get the opportunity to share their views, experiences and race recaps. I have been blogging for more than 7 years…

This blog has been edited roughly 18 hours after the first version went out. A report of copy write infringement was made on Facebook for what I can only assume is the use of an ASICS photo which this piece is about. I have removed the photo and instead uploaded a photo of my running…

I went for a short run in the Olympic Park in East London this morning. Nothing new there. It’s where I run. It is my local park after all. While out running I realised that it is actually 10 years (almost to the day) that I moved into my 2 bedroom flat in Stratford. Wow…

OK, so I am not going to lie, this is a difficult post to write. I have been putting off writing it all week. So here goes… In all my years of racing I had never not showed up for a race I have signed up for. Not once. If it is in my diary…
