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,…

I love running in Central London, and I don’t even mind running in the cold (or rain) so I was excited about having Cancer Research’s Winter Run as my first race of 2016 in my diary…HOWEVER….I didn’t actually do much training in preparation. Well I did lots of cross training, just very few runs…even to…

The Clubhouse (our online running club) is almost a year old…yep launched on the 1st February 2015 we have seen more than 200 women take part in our unique virtual running club to date, from as far afield as Australia and the USA, and from most corners of the UK too. So what the hell…

Lets get a few things clear 1. I am FAT 2.

Well come on…you didn’t expect me to actually go there did you? Really? Well, unlike some media channels I could mention, at The Fat Girls Guide to Running blog we prefer to focus on love not hate, so rather than run through the characteristics of “That” woman, much of which has already been debated, I instead…

Ever since I was a teenager and my mum bought me a filofax like diary for christmas I have taken the last few days of the year to put my thoiughts down on paper about what I think I have achieved, where things have gone wrong and most importantly what my goals are for the…

You might want to grab a cup of tea before attempting this post…or maybe something stronger if you have signed up for a Tough Mudder without knowing what it really is (a bit like my mate Natalie), this post is of epic proportions…but there really is no way of shortening it. Back in about January time…
