The Worl'ds Largest Gummy Bear Challenge

Gather round friends while I tell you a love story. It's the story between a lady and her better half, someone who was always there for her and who is, shockingly, no more...

It was a crsip June 18th when a box arrived on my desk at work. I thought to myself, "I don't remember buying anything online....how curious." I proceeded to open said parcel only to find one of the most miraculous sights I have ever seen. Grander than the Grand Canyon, brighter than Fourth of July Fireworks, and even sweeter than leftover Halloween Candy. My boyfriend had sent me The World's Largest Gummy Bear.  What is the World's Largest Gummy Bear? THIS is the World's Largest Gummy Bear.

Me and Boris, It was love at first lick.

Me and Boris, It was love at first lick.

I knew this was going to be one of the greatest challenges of my 24 year old life. I've run a marathon, I've graduated college, I've moved across the country to New York but completing the World's Largest Gummy Bear Challenge was my destiny. And so it began, my tête-à-tête with Boris, my 10 inch tall 5 pound gummy bear lover. Boris is the equivalent of 1,400 regular sized gummy bears  and contains 51 servings. I knew my time with Boris was limited, so I wanted to capture our moments together for all of you. Enjoy.

It was touch and go towards the end, drunk on love as Beyonce says, but I savored every moment we had together. I've read about great summer loves before but ours is like none other. It seems like just an hour ago that he was here. I will miss Boris forever but I know he will forever live on in my ass and on my thighs.

Yeah just kidding. Oh man, that was disgusting. I NEVER want to do that again. After the first week I was ready to throw that handsome gummy bear away, but I knew Boris needed me more than I needed him. I'm pretty sure my life will never be the same. And despite what you may assume, I still could go for a bag of haribo gummy bears. Just not the sugarless kind.

Alright friends, until tomorrow #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.
