Our expert says:
Fat affects speed quite a lot, because it's mass you are carrying that doesn't help you run. So when you run, you have to exert force and if you exert that force against a heavier mass, it accelerates more slowly, and that's why you'll run slower.
So losing fat almost always helps one run faster.
