What does it take to be at home in a body? How do you have fun moving in a world of body shaming and fat burning? Join Katherine McMahon as she takes you cross country on her journey from the fat kid skiving PE lessons, to a fat, fierce, feminist runner. This is not an inspiring before-and-after picture. It won’t make you thinner, or faster. It is a sometimes moving, sometimes funny, always honest exploration of the complicated business of being in a body. Brought to you by LEAP Sports Scotland, Scottish Book Trust and Edinburgh Front Runners, followed by a panel discussion.
