If you could sum up Run Fat Bitch Run in three words, what would they be?
Ruth's forthright, humorous and refreshing approach to getting off your ass and doing something about your self dissatisfaction.
Her straight forward, dry humour. For example, when discussing the benefits of increasing your water intake, her statement of "Don't like water? Oh, so your fat and spoilt". Made me laugh loud!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Run Fat Bitch Run?
I used to run and loved it but stopped due to injuries. I will be starting again because of this book.
Which character – as performed by Ruth Field – was your favorite?
The title certainly gives you a clear insight of what you get. Ruth tells it how it is, no mollycoddling here. She pushes all the bullshit diets and exercise programs aside and encourages you to get up, get out of the house and get running.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not a thing.
Any additional comments?
Such a refreshing book, thank you Ruth.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I've been researching ways to improve my running habits and decided to give this a go, because, well, information is good. While some of the assumptions didn't really fit my lifestyle, since I already run, it turned out to be a really good listen, and unexpectedly humorous in parts. The recipes in part two sound tasty, and I'll be giving them a go.
The style might be an acquired taste for some people, but I liked it.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Definitely. It's a short book, and I'll probably listen several times, since it'll be good for motivation. of interesting as well.
I said you'd never see me run. Any other form of exercise was worth trying. Why anyone thought the answer to fitness or life's problems came through pounding sweatily along in public places was beyond me.
I have no idea what made me listen to the sample of RFBR, but it made me laugh out loud and before I knew it I'd bought it and was following the instructions.
Sensible, down to earth, heartfelt advice that bears listening to over and over again. I play a snatch of it as I do my warm up walk and something about Ruth's voice puts me on the right path.
Worth every penny and more.

I have over my adult life tried to find the inspiration and enthusiasm to run. I know that if I do run regularly I lose weight, tone up and like how I look and feel. To often the call of the sofa and the wine glass got the better of me. This book is like having your honest friend speaking to you and encouraging you on with out having any of the complications of friendship get in the way. Ruth Field says that you must have a sense of humour about the book and she is right, it is a no-nonsense, easy and inspirational way of getting back your enthusiasm for moving.

I found that Ruth had no understanding whatsoever of people with mental illness. Specifically people that have lived with / have had eating disorders.
Her methods may work for some, but not many.
found this boring. too many long winded stories. I don't like being spoken to like I'm a dummy.
