Trick of Treat 

Ghouls, ghosts, mummies, zombies … the Trick or Treat Halloween Run in Richmond Park had them all!  We were entered into the 2k run with kids which started at 10.50 at Robin Hood Gate. Everyone had made a fantastic effort … especially the grim reaper, although frightening passing runners sent him into fits of laughter…

My little trooper!

‘Twas the night before muddness, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse’. Our matching kits were laid out and we were sleeping soundly in preparation for our ‘Over the Top’ extreme mud run at Back 2 the Trenches. ‘Why do you want to do the mud run?’ I…

Wiggle Northern Angel

‘It’s mizzly out there today’ said mum as I dragged my bed head around the kitchen looking for coffee. Is mizzly even a word or did she just make it up. Anyway, it was miserable and drizzly and I really wasn’t sure if this was a good idea – especially since I had to drive…

The Night Before

Today we spent the day writing frantic Facebook posts and sending random whatsapp texts asking everyone what they were taking and what they had packed. As the day drew in the first ‘we’re here’ posts started to pop up alongside the growing feeling of hysteria  and butterflies!  Vagner had packed the support car including full…

Almost ready ….

The kit arrived … So of course we had to go and show off and what better place to do so than Piccadily Circus and Angus Steakhouse. We’ve also got ‘Rex’ logo’d up and he looks amazing with all our sponsors logos and ready to take on the challenge of being our support and film…

Boulters to Bray Thames Swim 2016

Ok – I know we are team Fat but Fit on Wheels but we seem to have branched out …. On Saturday 2nd July we swam the Boulters Mile (which is actually 1600m or 0.9m). They claim it’s similar to the bakers dozen and this works for me! In a Dukes of Hazzard style drive…

Final preparations …

What better way to go through the Macmillan checklist than with friends, plenty of wine and good food? Less than two weeks to go … And we are all getting nervous. The designs have come through for our team kit! Massive thanks to all our sponsors and in particular Derek and his team at D&P…

The Big Push

Now I can say this to my besties, Tim and Vagner, with the full knowledge and confidence in knowing I’m right …. Liar liar pants on fire! I’m not getting thinner … And now that you have seen me in my underwear you’ll have to agree. And don’t be fooled girls … All that mud…

The Gran Fondo Tour of Cambridgshire

I got on the tube today … scruffy old jeans, muffin top, faded t-shirt and the odd few uncontrollable wisps of grey hair! I’m most def the wrong side of 40 but my life, I feel invincible! At the weekend I cycled 84 miles in the gran fondo Tour of Cambridgeshire with my incredible Fat…

Posh Nosh! 

Whilst I was frantically pedalling away but going nowhere (on the turbo), Michael and Vagner headed of to West Malling.       Of course, any outing wouldn’t be complete without some liquid refreshment! You’ll note, that when Tim and I are invited we tend to go to a local pub … But left to their own…

The Jurassic Beast put me in A&E and I was called a Nobber! 

A nobber … Seriously! Me? A nobber! I always thought of myself as sassy, smart and sexy but never a nobber! I’m sat in a&e with my sore arm, a little embarrassed that I fell off my bike and just looking at the times on strava for those who managed to complete the whole Wiggle…

We Are Epic!

Wiggle epic to be precise. On Sunday 10th April the Fat but Fit on Wheels team completed the Wiggle New Forest 130k Epic Sportive challenge! <chest swells with pride!>   Our day began with excited whatsapp group banter. Our team leader, Vagner, decided to post some  wise and thought provoking words of encouragement …. ‘No…
