Welcome to Daily Vlogs!

WELCOME TO DAILY VLOGS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! If you've seen me recently, you've probably seen me with a camera in my face. That's because BQ Or Bust has gone daily! That's right! Gone are the two or three times a week vlogs, now every single day by 4:00 pm EST, you can expect a 5-10 minute adventure of what I'm going through as I work towards my goal of shaving almost 28 minutes off of my marathon time to run a 3 hour and 32 minute Boston Qualifying time during the Chicago Marathon this year.

Why daily vlogging? To be honest, the entire reason I wanted to share my BQ or Bust experience was because I didn't see anyone sharing the good, the bad, and the TERRIBLY UGLY AND REALISTIC part of their BQ experiences. We saw the highlights and maybe a tough run. I was having a hard time relating so I wanted to share exactly what happened in the build up. What my days are like, how I manage my time, how I survive my workouts, what I eat, what I learn, what I struggle with, and everything that comes along with hardcore marathon training in New York City. 

You've probably noticed the daily videos but I'm doing a TERRIBLE job of posting them here. If you want to follow along with my journey, CLICK THIS LINK and click the subscribe button to subscribe to my YouTube channel. I know it sounds silly but every single subscribe is important. In the meantime, I'll do my best to post them here but here's an example of why you should subscribe, I'm an entire week behind.

So, to make up for the lack of my sharing and to get you caught up, here are all the vlogs you've missed!

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.
