When celebrated radio personality and columnist Kerre Woodham found herself forty, overweight and depressed she faced two choices - do nothing and probably not make it to fifty or do something and get her life back. Fortunately for all of us, and especially those women who like to eat and dress well, she decided to fight back. Leaving kilos of herself and two bra sizes behind ′somewhere in the Waitakeres′ she embarked on a fitness and training regime, with a goal to complete the Auckland marathon. To the laugh out loud delight and support of her readers and listeners, she battled her way to fitness and achieved her goal - then decided that she didn′t want to stop. With the 2008 New York marathon in her sights, Short Fat Chick documents her life changing decision to get fit and stay fit, eat what she wants and still wear a size 12 dress. With insightful comments and fitness and training tips from her personal trainer, Gaz Brown, Kerre tells it like it is and takes the reader on a journey of self discovery and self discipline we can all admire and emulate.

SFCTMR - Take Two

Have just read this book for the second time. The first was a couple of years ago when I first started running at the age of 57. Kerre's story inspired me to dream about running the NYC Marathon. Two year's on and I'm finalizing my travel plans to run this year's marathon on 2nd November. Thank you Kerre and Gaz for a rollicking good read and for inspiring me and countless thousands of others to take up this wonderful sport.

A bloody good motivational read

Kerre, would make anyone believe they could run a marathon. This book is so funny as she is very straight to the point and doesn't sugar coat anything. Just tells it like it is and yet you find yourself rather motivated.
