#255: Conversation with BIG FIT GIRL Louise Green

Sarah and co-host Adrienne Martini welcome Louise Green, author of the just-published book BIG FIT GIRL: Embrace the Body You Have. The plus-size mother triathlete shares how she became a trailblazing plus-size athlete thanks to a learn-to-run 5K class led by a larger-than-usual run leader. Louise tells how this experience propelled her to find her calling leading people to finish lines and launch Body Exchange, a plus-size fitness boot camp with seven Canadian locations. The gals talk about the importance of having athletes of various shapes and sizes in the visual landscape; as Louise reminds: “You can’t be what you can’t see.” Louise explains the Health at Every Size movement, and why walking through fear is like building a muscle. The BAMRs discuss how to own the label of “athlete,” after all three confess to feeling like posers at times.

Here’s the chicken with grapes (trust us!) recipe Sarah cooked for her book group. Reminder: Help AMR lobby @PeterSagal to be our guest for Father’s Day podcast by tweeting him using hashtag #AMRFathersDay. (And follow @TheMotherRunner @SBSontherun + @MartiniMade while you’re on Twitter!)

  1. I loved listening to Louise. Way to celebrate being you. I am a back of the pack runner at 5 ft 5 and 160. I have never been fast in my life. But I love to run! In the back of the pack I meet runners of every size, shape and age. Great interview. Great message. Thanks
