Horrible horrible horrible

Some vile human thought it was funny to block my path not once but twice then shout let fatty pass.

Upset is an understatement and I just couldn’t get into it then. I did finish it but on such a low.

Why are people such idiots I wouldn’t dream of doing that to anyone...he was with his wife/partner too and she found it funny !!

So not even my happy I finished it buzz today! Just wanted to get home and hide 😢

Sending virtual hugs 🤗 mezziejay! What a horrible person and experience! So sorry that a complete idiot ruined your end of run buzz BUT you didn’t let it completely throw you and you completed the run so do a mental 🖕to the guy who has to rely on being a t**t to feel relevant. Think about it - throw it away! You are in control of you! 💪

Thank you xx

Where I used to work there was a colleague there who was slim who would hate Thursday lunchtimes as she finished at 12.30 and would have to go past the high school next door to get to the bus stop to go home and even though she is slim she still got called various fat insults!

The fat insults are nothing to do with how much someone weighs physically it's just done to control people as some people are spiteful for the fun of it.


Oh my goodness, what a horrible thing to do 😦. I’m so sorry you had to go through that, obviously a complete ignoramus, with very few brain cells so not worth dwelling on; don’t even give him a second of your thought time.

You are amazing! You’ve got out there - not easy - and you finished that run, despite that moron. WELL DONE YOU!! You should be extremely proud of yourself, you are amazing. 🙌🏻💪 Go You!!!!

Thanks xx

Oh MJ, I’m so sorry to read this, that’s awful!! I actually feeling angry on your behalf. What vile human beings.

Try to remember that what he said says more about him than about you. You’re doing an incredible thing for your health and well being by smashing this programme.

Remember also that people like that are a minority. Many people who see you might not bat an eyelid and others will be bursting with admiration and say, ‘wow, look at that lady bettering herself.’

A massive pat on the back for carry on. Try your damned hardest to put the comment out of your mind because his lowly opinion is worthless. (I say opinion, he hasn’t got enough brain cells to form an opinion, he was just after a cheap laugh).

Your crew have got your back MJ and we’re so proud of your achievements. Run 2 will be better. Big hugs x

Thank you ! I really can’t believe that people can be so vile ! But yes you are tight it says a lot about him and not me. I wasn’t going to post today’s run but I thought better out than keeping it in !! I love you guys !! Xx

I’m glad you shared, it’s important to let it out. Try not to waste your energy dwelling on it. In a month’s time you’ll be happily running a comfy casual 30mins and it will be a distant memory 🌟😜🙌🏼

Hope you have a brighter afternoon. Onwards! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

What a disgusting excuse for a human.

I know it won't feel like much - but you rose above it and still finished the run, that's something to be proud of.


Horrible people!

I'll bet he or his wife couldn't run for 28 mins like you just did.

I know it's upsetting at the time, but don't dwell on the actions of such prats.

Im sooo angry on your behalf - please don't let this horrible human being spoil it for you. They are an idiot. You are not. You have taken it upon yourself to do this whilst all they can do is mock. You should be very very proud of yourself! ;-)

Last year when I worked at my old job I had gone out a couple of lunchtimes for my walk after lunch and had walked past the local high school next door to the offices and I had had things shouted at me on both those days like fat bitch and fatty which is rude and childish but the first day I hadn't done anything about it but the second day what I did was I rang up the headteacher of the school and put in a complaint and told her what was going on.

She had been very nice and had said how that kind of behaviour is rude and they should have more respect for people and I said that they are probably calling fellow pupils those nasty names and how to kids it can be damaging and that it needed to be addressed!

After that incident I still went for walks but went on different routes and if I went on the one near the high school what I did was go up one of the side streets just before the high school and would bypass it on school days and then go back to work!

Please don't let stupid people put you off as I most certainly don't but I do accept it's hurtful though when you get called nasty names and have done nothing to merit that kind of treatment!


Sorry you had to deal with these 💩's. People like these are oxygen thieves, whose heads are so moronicly devoid of active brain cell matter that they resort to this sort of behaviour.

Fortunately, 99.9% of people are nice & these type of clowns are very few and far between.

You are 1 gazillion times better than these life forms (I can't bring myself to use the word people).

So don't let them get you down & most importantly, don't let them stop you doing what you love, running!!!! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️👏👏👍👍

Take care 🤗🤗


I want to run with you next time just so I can bash him!! Imagine having a partner who does stuff like that in public aswell!

But if the only way someone can feel validated is to hurl insults then that person doesn't actually have any self worth and is obviously very insecure themselves.

Don't let anyone blow out your candle, just because they can't handle your light :)

You rock and we all know it, that's all that matters xx

mezziejayGraduate in reply to Burkey46

I’m so bringing you on my next run 🥊🥊🥊🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🔥🔥🔥x

That is disgusting - makes me angry to read this....just remember, anyone who behaves like this probably has a minus IQ. Dont let them affect you, you are doing something amazing - and well done for getting to week 8, im on week three and it’s tough enough, im sure week 8 is a killer! You should be very proud of yourself! Forget about the idiots

Firstly well done for doing the run you have actually made an effort to get fit and lose some weight 👏👏 as for the morons that laughed at you they should be applauding you - how cruel and heartless people can be - don’t give up keep going and know you have everyone’s support here 👍


Oh dear, how horrible. Why do people feel the need to knock other people’s confidence? Trying to make someone else feel or look ‘small’ is a sign of their feelings of inferiority, surely? If they felt great about themselves they wouldn’t need to be vile to other people. Please don’t let them deter you - your achievement is magnificent.

We all think that you’re great, you know that you’re marvellous and you are out there doing something to improve your fitness. Focus on those things and pity the idiots that tried to belittle you today - they only made themselves look ‘small’ xx


People are idiots, well done for finishing though! 💪🏻 I run between 6 and 7 on the morning on black paths around the local allotments just to avoid a lot of people seeing me struggle I've found though most people I pass are friendly and no trouble... There is always the village idiot though and unfortunately you must have found him!

Don't be put off!

Keep it up!


Hearing that makes me feel so angry and I imagine everyone else on here too. What a sad pitiful excuse for a human being that person was. Obviously as insecure as his wife / partner who found it funny.

Don’t let them upset you, rise above it and carry on your journey, we’re all behind you, you’re doing great and today you’ve showed mental as well as physical strength to complete that run, so be proud and turn that negative into a positive to make you even more determined 👏🏻👏🏻💪🏻👍


Fantastic that you kept going. Complete resilience in the face of ignorance or should I say you are pearls before swine. Well done 👏👍🏻


Can't believe I'm reading this ☹️

So sorry you had to put up with that .

I'm actually lost for words .

It makes me so angry ,why can't people just be nice , or at least civil !

Please try and look beyond it and see how far you have come with this program , keep smiling, we are all on your side ,

Good luck with the rest of the program 👍


Pure evil! These people obviously have no idea how much this hurts. It happened to me a few years ago, but it was shouted from a car. Stopped me instantly. DON'T let them win, you are doing an awesome thing, and your much nicer 😀 😄 👍


😱 couldn’t believe what I was reading. How absolutely awful, what a 🤬🤬🤬 excuse for a human being. You did soooooo well to continue and finish. Just think he clearly has many issues of his own and is just jealous as he’s knows he couldn’t achieve what are 😌

Don’t be put off, despite it being so upsetting. Just remember we all have your back and next time you go out imagine we’re all running with you 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

Sending 🤗🤗🤗 and you go out and 👊R2 xx


I have just read you post, and I am appalled that someone could hurl disgusting insults like that at another person.

I have read all the replies that have been sent to you and I only hope that you can take some comfort from the solidarity and words of encouragement that your fellow runners have given you.

Easier said than done, but try not to dwell on one idiots comment .

I’m sure that everyone on this forum thinks what you are doing is amazing.

Dust yourself down, enjoy W8R2 , you are nearly a graduate. Just think of that 😊


The person who blocked and insulted you was demonstrating the intelligence and manners of a decaying slug.

You mezziejay, in contrast, are amazing for finishing your run, and deserve every credit for it. I wish you many hours of happy running in the future :)

nowsterGraduate in reply to Cmoi

That sounds unfair on the slug. 😜

CmoiGraduate in reply to nowster

Hmm, could be. However I hate, loathe and detest slugs to the point of genuine phobia... vile runner-blocking creatures they are! ;)

nowsterGraduate in reply to Cmoi

It's worse barefoot!

CmoiGraduate in reply to nowster

Don't! It rained here overnight and there were evils all over the road when I went for my run this morning.


I'm so sorry you had such a nasty experience on your run today. How awful for you but it says a hell of a lot more about them than you. It sounds like they don't spoil a pair. I really admire how you didn't let them stop your run (I'm not sure I could have continued) and though they robbed you of your post run buzz, you didn't let them win. I hope you don't have the misfortune to ever encounter them again and that your next run is full of lots of positive things


Oh poor you, I am so sorry you experienced this, how horrible. You are right to be angry, but hold your head high, be proud and remember you are in control, not him. Take care. 🤗


What an ignorant pair of t**ts 😡🤬

Please don’t let the minority put you off, you are fabulous and you are doing amazingly! 👍🏃‍♀️👏

Hugs xx


I’m sorry you had to endure such horrible treatment. Fortunately, there are not many people like that and I have found many people have been the opposite and cheering me on when running.

Forget him - he is not worth your attention. You are running and you are improving your health with every run. Well done you.

Fkin scumbag. Don’t let his inferiority complex get you down. Hugs 🤗


A million thank you’s to all of you in here ! I am so touched you have made me feel so much better ! I honestly can’t thank you all enough ! I will be out there on my run 2 with my head held high and not let anyone drag me down. This group is just amazing 💕💕💕



What an absolute sh*thead! 💩

He’s clearly pussy whipped which is why he needed to act like that in front of his other half! 🤣🤣

I want to smash his face in but let’s be honest.... he’s not important!... YOU are!

OMG- I’m not sure if I’m upset or seriously bloody cross!


Then I just look at you and I want to thank you so much for posting this so that we can all jump on and tell you just how awesome and STRONG you are!

You finished your run! ✅ after coming up against such an idiot and being put off your stride like that ... you still finished!... trust me you’re amazing!...

We are your running family and you got this AND we got you! 💕

You’re on week 8... not long now until you graduate...

I’m super bloody proud of you ... I’m not as polite as you and would have done this to both of them! ✌️ (They can have a finger each!)

🙏🏻 Please please PLEASE listen to all the people on here who actually care about you rather than some pussy whipped boy who shows off in front of his other half ... please keep running 👏👏👏


Mezziejay - I am so sorry to read this! Please focus on the fact that you RAN past this ‘ass’ and ‘assette’ on your run!!!! They aren’t worth the dust you left them in!!!

You are amazing and wonderful and have completed an astonishing achievement so far - with only 5 runs to go to graduation.

You have kept me focussed so many times - I just hope you realise how much you have been such a positive influence to me on this programme.

Stay strong Mezziejay 🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️❤️❤️❤️❤️


You, Mezziejay, are a runner. And those people are selfish, envious imbeciles. Well done for rubbing and coming on here to share with us. We are with you as you can see from all the replies! Keep on running and being amazing 🏃‍♀️👍🌞🤗

BonniesRestGraduate in reply to BonniesRest

Oops! Typo - I mean running!!!! 😂 😬


You did great. You ran past them. Not away from them past them. You stuck to the right path. And left them behind you. Your improving. Bettering yourself. They are satisfied to stay as small minded and ignorant. Think where you will be in a month or year by staying on this path to keep heading forward. Your the one that gets the last laugh.

Stick with it your an inspiration.


Oh Mezzie that’s terrible... what vile people, so sorry you had to experience that. So glad you didn’t let them knock your confidence and you kept going and finished. Well done for completing.

Move on.. you are so much better than them! Just think where you have come from and you are in the homeward stretch now 👍🏻🏃‍♀️


What a twat. I'm so sorry this happened to you. I've had people mock my slow running, come on, get a move on... that's not running....we are all doing so much better than any of these idiots who try to steal other people's joy. He must be a very sad person...

Well done for continuing, there's a lot to be said for earbuds and very loud music!

I look forward to reading your graduation post soon. XX


I don’t know how I missed your post mezziejay and sorry this is a late reply as I don’t want to rake up old ground, but to wanted to show my support for you and to say ‘go girl’ 🙌, I’m so pleased that you got out for your next run 🏃‍♀️and didn’t let other people drag you down.

I’m sure what was said to you went deep but they are scum and don’t deserve to inhabit the same space as you. How could anyone think what they did was ok?

You are amazing 😘


He probably hasn't the IQ to even let him contemplate running mezziejay 🤭 these cave dwelling oiks are a special breed👍

Karma. Karma will level the score whether you see it or not. Look at today - you have succeeded in your running goal and he has failed at life. Who's had the best day really? Draw a line under it in your mind and choose to forget it ever happened. Tomorrow is a new day and he will always be an A-hole. xx
