Getting Open, Honest and Vulnerable with the Podcast Pace Per Mile

It's never easy opening up about the grief I experience from my brother's passing or my subsequent weight gain and weight loss. I recently had the opportunity to talk with Chris of the incredible podcast Pace Per Mile about how I started running, my loss, my weight gain, how I came up with the idea to take selfies with hot guys during the NYC Half Marathon, and how running has changed my life. It is the most open, honest and vulnerable I've ever been in an interview. The podcast is about 40 minutes long so if you're taking off for a run or have some time, I'd love to hear what you think.

I really want to thank Chris and everyone at Pace Per Mile for having me on and giving me the opportunity to share my story and my new partnership with the charity Save the Children (more on this to come)!

Thank you for listening and 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.
