About Me

please check out the new and improved site over at www.toofattorun.co.uk

My name is Julie and I am an overweight runner.

I am on a mission to get 1 million fat girls running alongside me, fat women with something to prove to them and them alone. Sod other sneering runners, running clubs that leave you behind and idiots who shout abuse – collectively we are on a mission to show that Fat girls run too!!

In May 2013 I launched the #fattymustrunmarathonchallenge for 16 international overweight runners, preparing them for a spring marathon, #fatgirlrunclinics a series of inspirational workshops for women thinking about running and #onbigfatrun the worlds first virtual 5k for overweight runners.

I have spent my whole adult life on some sort of diet or fitness regime, to varying degrees of success. I got into running 10 years ago after a bitter battle with my inner self and have never looked back. I have learned so much about the capabilities of my body and the strength and weaknesses of my mind. I have also met some amazing people along the way and had some phenomenal times trying to achieve my goals.

If you want to know how the blog came about (you know the straw that broke the camels back so to speak) then check out this post.

Why not get on board with this ambitious project? Sign up to receive blog posts directly, book me for a talking engagement or workshop or simply leave a comment and let me know if there is anything I can do to help or support you.

    This blog is a joke.Fat women are lazy and discussting..They shoul be reading blogs on how to lose weight and not about being fat and ‘proud runner’ .. You cant be fat and fit, this is impossible. Go on a diet!
