James Argent: Celeb on the run


Reality star James 'Arg' Argent, 23, from ITV2 hit show, The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) has managed to marry up marathon training with weight gain and had reportedly soared up to 18st (252lbs) when he had just seven weeks of training to go. Arg has been shown trying to beat the bulge on The Only Way Is Essex and the paparazzi have snapped him looking lardy on numerous occasions.

Unlike most people, it seems he’s not trimming down with training, but he remains optimistic that he’ll get round on the big day. On his Just Giving Page, he says: “Everyone’s saying I can’t do it but I’m determined to prove them wrong!  I may be crazy but this year I’m attempting to complete the Virgin London Marathon to raise money for Cancer Research UK. 26.2 miles is a loooong way but even if I have to crawl the last few miles, I’m determined to get to that finish line!”

According to his Twitter page, training is still going on, if not going strong! On March 22nd 2012 he tweeted, “Think it is safe 2 say today was a day of rest after a great night out in Puerto Banus! That is my last until the Marathon, Leaving Marbs!” But two days later he redeemed himself with this

“Trip to the dentist this morning, Then watched Essex FC @MarkWright_ play football, Then a 10 mile run and now in @nubar_essex Productive!?!...”

The Running Bug says, Good Luck Arg, we’ll be watching!
