Let The Wedding Rompus Start

Oh HELLO Run Selfie Repeaters! I'm coming to you poolside with a beer in my hand and the sunshine washing over me. It's a good day. Raven and I came up to Camarillo (where the wedding is happening Sunday) a day early to spend some time before the wedding festivities begin and cause some trouble. (I'll let you know if we need to kick start a fund to bail me out of jail tomorrow. )

First and foremost, a HUGE thank you to my pals over at Women's Health Magazine for the super groovy article. Check it out here.

My day started at 5am because I'm still on east coast time. Luckily it gave me some time to go over my maid of honor speech (Oh and it's quite a speech) and I got to finish my book. If you are looking for a book to read, A Discovery of Witches is where it's at. That book is real good. Real, real, real good. Next up, The Fault In Our Stars, which I hear is another grand slam book. After Raven got up I went out for a quick hill run.

We are spoiled in New York because we have absolutely no hills. Southern California is all canyons, all the time. My legs are really upset about it but it's important to incorporate hills to every training program. Trust me, your butt will eventually thank you.

The hills are alive with the sound of pain

Then it was shower, pack, load the car, que spice girl radio and then we hit the road! It's our last single girls road trip! It's the last time the two of us could scream/sing at the top of our lungs as two unattached single ladies!

ROAD TRIP!

ROAD TRIP!

Then I conveniently located an In N Out burger RIGHT NEAR where we were taking Raven's wedding gown to get steamed. After begging, pleading and bargaining Raven begrudgingly agreed to join the long line at In N Out burger so I could body slam a double double. (She's the best best friend ever.)

A long day's journey through the In N Out drive through.

There is nothing in the world I love more than an In N Out burger. Seriously New York, get it together. SOMEONE. ANYONE. BRING THAT FRANCHISE TO ME.

The face of a happy girl.

Then we checked in the hotel, unloaded the car, cracked open some delicious beer and head down to the pool!

Up to no good.

Up to no good.

Alright friends, I am burning up. I need to go belly flop into the pool. Stay tuned for tomorrow for some mid day shenanigans. We have the rehearsal at noon, more partying and then the rehearsal dinner so I will try to bang something out at the pool. I'll try to take lots of pictures.

SO, it's Friday! Is anyone racing this weekend? ANY FIRST TIME RACERS?! Remember to send me those pics! Email me RunSelfieRepeat@gmail.com or use the hashtag #RunSelfieRepeat. You guys rock, don't ever change. I mean it.

Until tomorrow friends, #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, www.RunSelfieRepeat.com 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.
