Watch Out Europe, I'm Running The Berlin Marathon

Big news everyone! I finally get to share what I've had up my sleeves for the last few weeks.

I'm running the Berlin Marathon on September 27th with adidas miCoach!!!!







Now what's so special about Berlin? WELL it is currently the course where the world record for the fastest marathon (2:02:57) is held! You see any marathon is a really big deal in my humble opinion but there are 6 marathons that are apart of the "world marathon majors" and they are a very big deal. They are the Tokyo Marathon, The London Marathon, The Boston Marathon, The New York City Marathon, the Chicago Marathon and The Berlin Marathon.

So this is why I decided and then failed at dropping out of the San Francisco Marathon. (MY BAD!) That means I'm running 3 marathons this year WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. That's terrifying. I'm terrified. But there's a feeling that is outrunning my terror and that's excitement. I've never been outside of the United States before! One of my New Years Resolutions was to run a race in a different country. I never expected that "race" to be THE BERLIN MARATHON!

So here's the good news, I'm in incredibly good hands. I have the total and complete support of the adidas miCoach program to help me recover from that unintentional marathon I ran last month, get me ready to run a sub 4 hour marathon in Berlin and then do it all again 4 weeks later at The New York City Marathon. It's funny, people keep asking me what my goal for the races are. I keep saying, "To have fun" and they all roll their eyes and say, "No really, what's your goal." My goal time is to break four hours but at the end of the day, I want to have fun. I've run painful marathons and really fun marathons and I think it's much more fun to run an easier and fun race than it is to spend four hours in pain. BUT THAT'S JUST ME. We will see if I can do both!

LUCKILY I have the help of the adidas miCoach training platform to get me to that happy medium. I'm using the adidas miCoach smart run with helps track data like heart rate, speed and energy expenditure so that all of my workouts are calculated and taken care of. (The less work I need to do figuring out JUST what I need to be doing, the better!) So I'm excited to use such a groovy program!

It's go time! Adidas and I have all sorts of fun adventures up or sleeves leading into the marathon and I cannot wait to take you with me! We're running back to back to back marathons so buckle up!

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.
