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. 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…

Yesterday I sneaked out of bed, dressed in the dark and went out into the cold to tackle the 8 mile training run that was penciled into my diary as part of my preparations for this years London Marathon, in the end my Garmin informed me it was actually 9.3 miles I covered and doing the…

 Each month I feature one of our runners, but this month we have a special treat in the form of 37 year old Joanne Oborn from Bromley, South London who I have had the pleasure of meeting twice now. I first met Joanne when she came along to one of my Fat Girl Run Clinics…
