My fitness journey started for real back in 2006 after returning home from a week long weight loss bootcamp in Devon at a time when I couldn’t even run to the top of the road I lived at…I came home 6lbs lighter, with some new ideas for food and a surprising enjoyment of running up…

On the 14th May a group of fabulous brave, Too Fat to Run ladies from a range of backgrounds will be arriving in Pefkos on the Greek Island of Rhodes to spend a week in a luxury mountain top villa, prioritising their own health and happiness, and investigating the barriers and blockages they may have…
