21 Internet Strangers Who Got Me Through My Breakup

We all hate when someone airs their dirty laundry on social media. I silently cringe for them. But I am a firm believer in when life get's you down get outside and get laughing so while I may have been putting myself on blast last month during my #EmailBreakup I am pretty gosh darn glad I did. I am not going to lie, you internet strangers who keep up with me here on Run, Selfie, Repeat or on The Instagram or The Twitter at @KellyKKRoberts are the worlds greatest. I wish I could get little trophies of two hands high fiving or two people chest bumping with the inscription "World's Best Human" on it to distribute to you all. 

The comments, emails and tweets ranged from enlightening, inspiring and supportive to ridiculously and utterly hilarious. I was reading them aloud at dinner last week and everyone was on the floor laughing. Which made me want to share them all with you and thank you for being so wonderful.

Kelly Roberts

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.
