Lets get a few things clear 1. I am FAT 2. I describe myself as a runner but Heck, sometimes despite my desire to impress everyone with my plussize fitness I simply find myself walking in races…but not only that I find myself looking at other Fat runners thinking “oh look, they’re walking too” however I think…

Last month I changed the look of our Runner of the Month feature to make it easier for people to see who we have heading up this amazing community of plus sized runners, and when I looked at the new layout I realised something so obvious. All of the runners I had featured thus far were white….

So my 10k is tomorrow morning, and really I should be sitting here confident that I have done everything in my power to prepare both my body and mind for this race, instead I am sitting here watching family fortunes and thinking about how much I would like to have a drink tonight. I will…

I feel fine when I am lying or sitting down, and fine when I am standing…but its those moments inbetween that are proving quite painful. Going to the toilet is the worst, I might have to conscider wearing a nappy for the next few days until the pain subsides. I of course say all of…
