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’ve had a bit of a nagging feeling today, a feeling of…I should actually be running. I should. I have a half marathon in a fortnight and a full marathon in just over 2 months and I simply ain’t running. My daughter starts primary school on Thursday so my running routine will return and besides I…

For the past 5 days I have been away from home on a very exciting trip to Israel to report on the incredible sports scene that can be found there. I was invited by the Ministry of Tourism along with 39 other international journalists and bloggers to take part in one of the races at…

So in 2005 after coming dead last in a race and feeling remarkably cross that the finish line had been dismantled before I arrived I started a running blog. At the time I didn’t really know what blogging was, but figured I would use it like a diary and see if it would motivate me…

So it was brought to my attention late last night that yesterday marked the 4 year anniversary of my blog The Fat Girls Guide to Running. Wow. Four Years…who ever would have thunk it? I can remember the day I got myself a wordpress account and haphazardly thought up the blogs name, I think I…
