BQ Or Bust 002 Finding a Coach

Finding a coach is a lot like dating. You want to test drive all of your options before making something Facebook official. I knew going into BQ or Bust who I wanted as my coach.

That person is Josh Maio, the coach of Gotham City Runners here in NYC.

The first step when you're looking for a coach is to make a list of things you want. Then set out to find the coach that you feel satisfies that list of requirements. You have to mesh and get along and you have to trust them. For me, that person is Josh. I know he can get me there and I know the process is going to be equal parts fun and traumatizing!

So there we have it! Next up, we asses my fitness level so Josh can see what he's working with.

Until next time, #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.
