On Being A Fat Happy Runner: My Guest Post At Salty Running


Yes, today I am guest posting at Salty Running.  I was asked to write a post about being a plus-size runner who does not do it to lose weight.  So I would love it if you would join me today over at SR:)  I talk about the how, the why, & the “now what?   I included a list of resources culled from gear threads on the Fit Fatties Forum.

  1. Love this post! This post really spoke to me. As a 5’3″, 200+ pound runner who runs for health and not just for weight loss, you really hit the nail on its head. Although, I haven’t received any negative comments when I tell people I’m a runner. Most people do automatically assume that I am running in order to lose weight or when I’m doing yoga or any other kind of sport. For instance, a few months ago, I was doing my usual 3 miles run around my neighborhood lake when a homeless guy asked me, “how much weight do you planned on losing?” I said, “not much”. Even though, I should’ve asked him how long he plans on being homeless. Ha! Anyways, I’m so happy you wrote this b/c I was thinking of blogging about the same thing. Thanks for the comprehensive post on being a Happy Fat Runner!
