Introducing the Run, Selfie, Repeat Podcast

IT'S HERE! It's finally here! Exciting news podcast lovers, because the Run, Selfie, Repeat podcast is officially live! What is a podcast? GREAT QUESTION, it's this audio feed that is super complicated to figure out how to put onto the internet and then distribute to multiple different apps and feeds. BUT, so far, it is going to live here in the "Podcast" section of Run, Selfie, Repeat, iTunes, and Google Play.

Now, what can you expect from this Podcast? WELL, you can expect weekly talks with author, runner, funny lady, and Run, Selfie, Repeat creator Kelly Roberts (that's me) about life, liberty, and the pursuit of our happiest, strongest and most vulnerable selves. 

Sounds like fun, right? Well, in case you can't tell, I'm really excited about this launch. Being able to talk about the things I write about brings the vulnerability to a whole new level that I'm really excited to explore with all of you.

Episode 1 - Leap of Faith

Episode 2 - Self Confidence

So, do me a favor and go subscribe, give it a listen, and then give it a 5 star review on iTunes or Google Play.

Exciting times!

It all started when a silly joke made headlines back in 2014 when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the New York City Half Marathon. But ironically enough, I haven't always been a runner. As the self-proclaimed former President of the "I f*cking hate running club", I spent most of my life finding ways to avoid physical activity. Growing up, I missed over 70 days of PE my senior year. Working out was something I thought I had to suffer through in order to lose weight. 

Then, in 2009, my younger brother passed away unexpectedly and struggling to manage my grief, I gained more than 75 pounds. With the weight gain came a new fight to regain my sense of self and learn to love the body I saw when I looked in the mirror. Then one Thanksgiving morning, drowning in grief and self doubt, I decided to go for a run. I didn't make it half way down my street before I had to stop to walk but for some reason, struggling forward made more sense than getting back into bed. It turns out that running is a lot like grief, neither ever really get easier, you just get stronger. 

Over time, I realized that while some people are in fact born runners, others are made. I created this blog Run, Selfie, Repeat and my new podcast by the same name with the hopes to inspire others to say yes to themselves while making them laugh hysterically because laughing, in my opinion, is the solution to everything. 

Named by Women's Running as one of twenty women who are changing the sport of running and by Competitor Magazine as one of 12 Influential and inspiring runners under 30, my mission is to inspire others to get embrace a healthy lifestyle and pursue the strongest version of themselves possible.
