The Struggles of Living With A Runner: Being Tricked Into Running A Half Marathon

I am willing to bet that half of all marathon runners were tricked into registering in the first place. I know this because that's how I've gotten every single one of my friends, family members and often strangers that I meet in coffee shops to sign up. I'm normally in running clothes and the conversation casually turns into me convincing them that their lives will change for the better if they run a half marathon. 5 minutes later, high fives are being given and they're officially registered to run their first half marathon.

This is how it happens...

We've all done it! I was tricked into running my first half marathon and I have no regrets! 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, www.RunSelfieRepeat.com 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.
