BQ Or Bust It's Time To Make Impossible, Possible

After I ran my first painful marathon, I promised myself that I would attempt to do everything that I told myself was impossible. WELL, I think running a 3 hour and 35 minute marathon (which would be the time I would have to run a marathon in to qualify for the Boston Marathon) is impossible. So in 6 months, I'm going to try to make that impossible, possible and I'm going to film the entire journey. Too often we see finish lines and after photos. We don't see the doubts and the tears. This is going to be really f*cking hard and it is probably not going to happen. But I'm going to give it 100% and see what I can do because the only way you'll fail is if you fail to try.

So this is it, I'm putting it out there and I'm bringing you all with me so we can set a HUGE goal together and chase it down because we are stronger together! What's your goal? 6 months may seem really far away but when we break it into weeks, it's not far away at all. Set a goal. Join me. Let's do this.

So what can you expect? Well, at least one video a week (let's be honest, there will probably be more than that) showing you what I'm going through. I anticipate a lot of tears and a lot of f words but we will see. Will you see me talking a lot about pace? I hope not. I don't think that's super interesting but I'm sure it will make it's way in here. My hope is to really just focus on what I'm battling. What feels hard and impossible. What hurts. What works. What doesn't work. My hopes and fears. I'm a work in progress and it's all about the journey!

Step 1 was to get my Physical Therapist Mike Riccardi at Finish Line PT on board. Step 2 is to find a kick ass coach who will help me make impossible, possible. BQ OR BUST!

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.
