Run Selfie Repeat. #SportsBraSquad. She Can and She Did. #BQorBust. "I set out to inspire people who were struggling to find a way to feel proud of themselves." Kelly Roberts is in the house! We talk about running, injury, the hot guys in the NYC half marathon, the haters, the sports bra squad and more.
She writes on her site: "When I started a blog called Run, Selfie, Repeat in 2013, I had no idea what the hell I was doing. I had just “gone viral” for taking selfies with "hot guys" behind me while I tried to survive a half marathon. Suddenly, I found myself on Good Morning America and was struggling to navigate the fleeting hurricane that is going viral.
"That’s when my badass lady gang swooped in and encouraged me to start a blog and run with my five seconds of fame.
"I wanted to inspire people who, like me, had a hard time with physical activity (that’s putting it lightly – I used to call myself the President of the "I f*cking hate running club"). I set out to inspire people who were struggling to find a way to feel proud of themselves. And so, I started a running blog because despite the fact that running consistently humbled the hell out of me, it also gave me a way to set a tangible, seemingly impossible goal, and work to make it a reality.
"A lot happened in a very short four years. I met the royals, went from “I don’t think I’m a runner” to a 3 hour and 41 minute marathoner(!!!), started the #SportsBraSquad, landed the cover of Women’s Running Magazine(!!!), and saw thousands of badass women cross their very first finish lines."
