I remember the first time I went abroad to run a race, it was the Paris 20K about 8 years ago and I was going with a bunch of ladies I’d only met a few months prior at a bootcamp we were all at. Turned out one of the ladies Kim, despite being an Aussie,…

In 77 days 14 nervous but excited ladies from the Too Fat to Run community will be heading to the airport about to embark on adventure….as they join me and my incredible retreat staff for 7 days on the Greek island of Rhodes for a week of fitness, food and fun, and you could be…

I love soup. I could live on soup (clearly I don’t, but I could) I love tinned soup, chilled soup, home made soup…although I draw the line at packet soup. I just find it so convenient, and I never get bored of it. I often make my own soup, but I’m not the greatest cook…
