Another Saturday in the city

Who's feeling relaxed, I know I am. I love Saturday. I love Saturday more than any day of the week. You get to lounge and eat. And it's an amazing day in New York, with equal parts sunshine and monsoon.

I just finished my last long run before the Brooklyn half and I was sweating bullets. It takes a while to get used to running in inferno temperatures when you've been locked inside an eternal frozen winter wonderland. It's all good though, I love warm weather because warm weather means bbqs and beer. Which ironically is what my friends and I are doing at the moment. 

warmer temps mean less clothing. Everyone wins.

So I had a pretty interesting end to my week, I had two dates. (Disclaimer I'm real hesitant to share my dating life on here so you can have a taste but I'm not a Carrie Bradshaw. I'll let you use your imagination to color in the details.) Both dates were fun and both guys were great. But I was talking to a friend of mine today about dating in New York and how the date always goes really well, great chemistry, great goodbye kiss, you make plans for a second date AND THEN radio silence. You never hear from them again. She then introduced me to a new word, Ghosting-

Ghosting: when instead of ending a current or prospective relationship you disappear.  

WHAT THE EFF. GHOSTING? It's a thing! New York is ridiculous. Dating in New York is comical. I mean maybe I'm just to fun and I can't tell when nothing's there because I'm busy entertaining and telling jokes, but holy moly. Ghosting. That's a whole new can of worms. I'm exhausted. Datings exhausting. Running is exhausting. Life is exhausting. But hey, that's life in the big city! 

I'm excited for tomorrow we are having a big Mother's Day brunch for our New York mom Deb over in Chelsea which is going to be ridiculously fun. Who doesn't love brunch? !

Happy Saturday friends. Go let your hair down. Until tomorrow #RunSelfieRepeat

My name is Kelly Roberts and I am a 25 year old New York City resident. My story made headlines when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the NYC Half Marathon. My blog, is bursting with humor and personal stories that lend an insight into the world of running and lead you to believe that just about anyone, regardless of their fitness level, can and should fall in love with running. Though currently an avid runner, I never would have predicted I would run marathons. I was the kid who used to hide in the bushes or play dead to get out of running the mile in school. I HATED running. But running has given me a purpose. It’s shown me that I really am limitless. In the two years since I started running, I’ve run multiple half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks, and two full marathons. My mission is to inspire others to find the courage to say yes to themselves all the while making them laugh hysterically because laughing is the solution to everything.
