What is One Big Fat Run (OBFR)? The title says it all really; fat people, running, together (virtually or otherwise)! The first OBFR took place on Sunday 25 August 2013, with over 100 participants worldwide and is now a monthly event. Julie's dream is to get one million fat people participating in the virtual collective, which brings both physical and mental health benefits. Julie started running in 2005 and you can read the story behind The Fat Girls Guide to Running here, it's a great source of inspiration. Her website is written in a very down to earth and approachable way, but also contains lots of useful information such as How to Run (for beginners) and suggestions for those running essentials.
If you'd like to take part in the OBFR Xmas Special and future events, you can sign up via Facebook.
