#FMRMC girl Holley leads the way

In May last year I got this crazy idea that if I could motivate myself as an overweight girl to run a marathon, perhaps I could motivate other overweight ladies to run their first marathon. So I put out a call on the internet I NEED FATTIES¬†and low and behold they came. That was where … Continue reading

Introducing Gemma

Of course I have no favorites in my Fattymustrun Marathon Challenge Recruits , however I think I am secretly most proud of Gemma, and here is why. In the first month of the challenge she was carted off to hospital to have her appendix taken out, and if truth be known I didn’t think she … Continue reading

How to cope with rejection?

We all know that feeling of being picked last in PE, or that “thanks but no thanks” job application response…it’s not nice.

International Fatties

Now we all know that obesity…like poverty is a global issue, the difference between those who have and those who don’t is so apparent, especially if like me you like to travel. I stood out like a sore thumb on my travels around south east Asia last year, children there thought I was a giant…Well … Continue reading

Well maybe you, maybe someone you know…or even someone on the other side of the world, you’ve never met in person but who knows your online you. I am recruiting, in search of fellow fatties to be specific, but fatties with a sense of challenge and of course a sense of humor. They will need … Continue reading
