Fit Fatties: Fat Happy Runners

Gordon: Go on then, run! 
Dennis: Isn’t there some kind of like… special technique? 
Gordon: Well… yeah… you put one leg in front of the other over and over again really really fast.

Happy healthy woman running to music

 This came from a dusty region of my hard drive, so no idea where it came from, sorry.  And no, she’s not fat, but she’s about twice the size of the other women runners I have pics of . *le sigh*

While I’m thinking about it, the Fit Fatties Forum has a growing group for runners.  The site is still new, but there’s already over 500 members & more every day.  New groups are being added & they just started a yoga group.

Just thought some other fat runners, or not so fat runners, might be  interested in an environment where we run because we love it & not as a means to weight loss.  Diet talk & weight worry free!

Fit Fatties

Our group is led by Jayne Williams the Slow Fat Triathlete, author of Slow Fat Triathlete: Live Your Athletic Dreams in the Body You Have Now & The Imperfect Athlete’s Guide to Getting Fit.
