The NYC Run, Selfie, Repeat NYC Marathon Shakeout Fun Run!

It started in Chicago. I wanted to find a way to get some face time with the amazing people who make Run, Selfie, Repeat possible. So I got in touch with Westin and they agreed to host what I thought were a dozen or two dozen runners during the first ever #SportsBraSquad shakeout run. Then Oiselle, the amazing brand that advocates for women stepped in and offered to provide INCREDIBLE swag to the runners who RSVP'ed. 

Over 130 people showed up. I walked into the lobby and my jaw hit the floor. That morning is a morning I'll never forget. Actually getting to hang out with the Run, Selfie, Repeat community and listen to your stories was nothing short of life changing. I didn't even need to think twice before throwing out that we were doing it again in New York City before the TCS NYC Marathon.

SO,

If you're in New York or anywhere near New York City on Saturday November 5th, come to the shakeout fun run! There will be snacks provided by Vega, recovery tools and NormaTec compression sleeves provided by Finish Line Physical Therapy and 200 of what will soon be your new best friends! Oh and there's a ton of surprises in store so you don't want to miss this!

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.
