Today I chat with Jill Angie from Running With Curves. This is one of the most enjoyable interviews I’ve had the pleasure to be part of.

I met Jill online and was struck by her journey to fitness and running.

In her own words, here’s Jill’s story:

“Once upon a time, I was a dedicated couch potato, corporate desk jockey, and addicted to sugar & processed foods.  My weight struggles started in my early teens and despite frequent diets and exercise regimens, I never managed to lose weight and keep it off.  I kept telling myself that as soon as I lost the weight, I could do all the things I wanted to do…until one day I realized that I was 42 years old, was very overweight, and felt sick, tired and dejected most of the time.  And I wasn’t getting any younger.  It was time to take action.”
