Fall is without a doubt the best time to run and race because THE WEATHER IS FINALLY ENJOYABLE! And there's something exciting about being able to put your months of hard work and summer suffering to the test. If you're on the East Coast or if you're looking for a reason to come out to the east coast, come run the Runner's World Half Festival in Bethlehem Pennsylvania on October 14-16! There's a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, trail run, and a kids race so there's a little something for everyone! 

And to put some icing on that sweet cake, I'll be one week post Chicago Marathon so you know it's going to be hilarious just watching me walk around the festival! I registered for everything because I LITERALLY have no idea how I'm going to be feeling one week post BQ or Bust. I'm hoping I'll feel strong enough to run the 10K but if I'm feeling fantastic, I'll definitely run the half. (I'm not holding my breath.) Either way, if I'm not running, I'll be out on the course in full force with funny signs so good times are going to be had! The race takes place in Pennsylvania which, according to the race website, is loaded with history so if you're looking for someone to sing some Hamilton with, LET'S MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! If you use code RunSelfieRepeatBlog, you can save 10% on registration fees! YAS SAVING MONEY, YAS! So click here and let's get down in Pennsylvania! 

It's going to be a pretty groovy weekend so come hang out with me and some of my favorite pals like Michele and SarahSee you there?

Until the RWHalf, #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.
