On top of that there's tons of resources for pre and post stretches, as well as real life stories to help inspire that oomf you need.

SHOP NIKE PLUS SIZE APPAREL
I am wearing size 3x in this top and it is really comfortable and the fabric is lovely and soft. The Zipper around the neck is really helpful for keeping you warm as well as allowing you to cool down quickly post run
These are great running tights, they are stretchy but firm which is helpful with them staying up during the run. I love the style of these with the paneling which adds style to the legging.
These are fantastic trainers, they are so lightweight that you hardly feel like you are wearing anything. The foam bottom of the trainer feels really nice when running. My only advise with these is, if you are have wide feet then I recommend going in store to try these on to whether it is best to size up as whilst they have a lot of stretch they foot width is a little narrow.
