Like Lindsey Swift, Women’s Running UK’s cover model, I’ve been harassed for daring to move my body in public. It’s time ‘plus-size runner’ stopped being an oxymoron
One of the biggest (if you’ll pardon the pun) double standards we have around body size is exercise. We fatties are constantly told that we should get off our well-cushioned rear ends and “get active”. Yet as soon as we don our Lycra and start bending and stretching, people see it as an opportunity to bully and heckle us for being the “wrong” shape.
My comment: Why do some people feel they have the right to heckle other people, for whatever reason? These hecklers are bullies and should be called out for it.
