I realised yesterday one of my biggest problems in life…no its not that I am overweight, or that I am a little bit rubbish at running a business…its that apparently I set my goals too big. This is not a realisation I have had for the first time. However, every time I acknowledge this fact,…

Back in February 2015 we launched The Clubhouse billed as the worlds only virtual running club for plus size runners…the idea was to provide a safe space for women to talk about their running, share their successes and discuss any challenges they were going through.
