10 Other Times I Shouldn't Have Taken A Selfie

Yesterday I was laying in my bed after running the most terrifying 6 miles of my life in the midst of an INSANE lightening storm, quietly reading my book, minding my own business, when I started getting Instagram and Twitter notifications about a health.com article titled "3 Times You Should Never, Ever Take a Selfie." I opened said article and found a certain someone (ME!) equated with the likes of the man who took a selfie during The Running of the Bulls (Ya not even I would do that...) and during catastrophic events (um...what else would you do during a lightening storm...see below's ironic and coincidental picture taken yesterday.) So I thought...why not add 10 other times you PROBABLY shouldn't take a selfie. You know, because there are times you should DEFINITELY take a selfie....

Terrified and about to be electrocuted.

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.
