Ep 31: Embracing the New Powersuit with Sally Bergesen

If you haven't heard of the force of nature that is Sally Bergesen before today, allow me to give you some backstory. 10 years ago, Sally founded Oiselle (pronounced wa-zell), a female apparel line designed by women, for women. Over the past 10 years, Sally has been a voice for both Women's rights as well as Athlete's rights and is a true badass and crusader who is changing the sport of running. 

In February 2016, Sally spoke at the Muse Conference about fashion, feminism, and the new powersuit. 

Put your big girl powersuit on (you too dudes) because in this episode of the RSR podcast, the founder and CEO of Oiselle, Sally Bergesen joins us for a discussion on what exactly it means to embrace the new powersuit.

What is your powersuit? Let me know in the comments below.

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.

Ep 30: You Don't Know You're Beautiful

When we feel beautiful, we look beautiful. If we know that, why do we struggle so much with our body image? Or why do we struggle to know that we're beautiful? SERIOUSLY? Why? Well, I'm back in NYC and I'm looking for love. And beauty is something I've been spending a lot of time thinking about. (Mostly because I don't like to change out of my Oiselle aero running tights...) But let's talk about beauty!

I'm going to pose this question again. Let me know what you think in the comments below. 

What do you think makes someone beautiful? Or what do you think makes you look and feel beautiful?

Ep 27: Redefining Our Pre-Defined Limits

The more we define what we can and can't do, the worse off we are. One of the hardest parts about climbing self doubt mountain is redefining my pre-defined limits. It drives me crazy that before I even try, I can convince myself that I'm going to fail or fall short. One of my favorite parts about running is that it's a constant reminder that it's not about how badly you want something, it's about how hard you're willing to work for it. And you have to believe that you're stronger than you think. Let's talk about how running is helping me redefine my pre-defined limits.

Let me know what your pre-defined limits are and how you work to redefine them in the comments below.

Ep 26: BE BOLD The Pre Race Pep Talk

CAN WE TAKE A SECOND TO TALK ABOUT THE LITTLE VOICE IN THE BACK OF OUR HEADS THAT TELLS US WE AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH, SMART ENOUGH, QUALIFIED ENOUGH, OR PRETTY ENOUGH??? Woah, sorry about the caps. That was aggressive. BUT (sorry, there they are again), I want to talk about the fact that the only thing stopping us from making impossible possible.

Ep 24: Running For Your Life

I think for so many people, running is so much more than a way to chase goals or stay in shape. We're literally running for our lives. But what happens when you start stepping out side of your comfort zone and start chasing an impossible goal? It's possible that the activity that felt like your lifeline may start to feel more like a chore and a job. Can you run for your life and still push your limits? I think it's a balance. Sometimes it's hard to find that balance but change doesn't happen overnight. Dare to fail. Dare to try something new. Don't just run, run for your life.

Ep 23: Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story

There's a lyric in Hamilton, An American Musical that helped me find my voice, "Who lives, who dies, who tells your story." I was watching the Hamilton documentary on KPBS and listening to Lin Manuel Miranda talk about purpose and the importance of preserving our stories changed the way I approached my blog, Run, Selfie, Repeat. Up until that point, I was sharing bits and pieces of my story but I stuck mostly with funny articles. 

All we have is our story. And for me, one of the hardest parts about my grief or even my struggle to lose weight was that I felt alone. So today, let's talk about our stories and why I think it's important that they're shared and preserved. 

Whether you're looking to share your artwork, start a new business, or create your own running blog, take a chance on yourself and make your next move. I honestly don't think I would ever have been able to build a website had it not been for Squarespace. Between their customer support and their beautiful layouts, Squarespace has made the entire process of building a blog, website, portfolio, or business website almost effortless.

Ep 22: The Power of Patience

One of the hardest parts about adopting a healthy lifestyle or becoming a runner is that it can easily feel overwhelming or impossible. Pushing your limits and stepping outside of your comfort zone is hard! Results don’t happen overnight. It’s a slow progression and in the beginning, it's hard to trust that the painful work you’re putting in will eventually pay off. Let's talk about how the power of patience can help you kick ass and take names.

Ep 21: Am I An Athlete?

What makes someone an athlete? 

That's what we're talking about because calling myself an athlete is something I've struggled with since day 1. From feeling "slow" to not feeling like I looked like an athlete, I've come up with every excuse in the book to keep myself from accepting that I am in fact an athlete. So let's talk about why I struggle to assume the identity of an athlete.

Ep 20: What Is Success

How do you define success? Is it monetary? Something that can be measured by your societal status? Or, to steal from the musical Rent, can it be measured in moments and love? Next week, I move back to New York City and if I'm being honest, I'm anxious about the move. New York City is a really tough place to live and after last year, I thought I was done with being chewed up and spit out.

Ep 19: Online Shaming and Compassion

Online bullying and shaming is something I've lived with for the better part of the past 4 years I've spent building Run, Selfie, Repeat but my first experience with it shaped how I view online bullying and shaming for the rest of my life. Today, I'm all about advocating for compassion because regardless of how inexcusable someone's mistakes may be, I don't condone the schadenfreude that surrounds online witch hunts.

I'm serious when I say that I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject. What are your thoughts on the lack of compassion in online comments and message boards? What can we do to make a change?

Ep 18: Chasing Impossible Goals with Dr. Bob

I started chasing my impossible goal to qualify for the Boston Marathon (BQ) in April 2016. In order to qualify, I had to take myself and training seriously in order to take my personal best time from 3 hours and 59 minutes down to 3 hours and 35 minutes. 

Ever wonder what it would be like if an amateur runner had the help of a sports psychologist? Meet Dr. Bob! The former head of Sports Psychology at UCLA and a licensed psychologist, Dr. Bob has helped me battle some of my toughest mental battles. Today, he's checking in with me as I approach my second Boston Marathon qualifying attempt.

Ep 17: Your Weight Doesn't Define You

For so many who struggle with their weight or feel insecure about their weight, it's hard not to let your weight define who you are. Here's the thing, your weight doesn't define you. It isn't your entire story, it's just a chapter or single book in the series that is your life. 

NOW, I want to know what you think about celebrating someone who has made a healthy lifestyle change. Are you pro telling them they look great or pro telling them they look strong, healthy and happy? Let's discuss!

Ep 16: No More Before And After Photos

My issue with ‘Before and After’ photos is that they place the before photos in a context that implies that it’s unacceptable to look like what we look like in our after photos. Newsflash: If you're on a weight loss journey, it doesn't matter how much weight you lose because if you fail to work on a positive body image, you're in for a rude awakening when you look in the mirror and feel inadequate when you reach your goal. 

I'm all for advocating for working towards the strongest version of yourself possible, but when we compare before and after photos, we're implying that there is something implicitly wrong or unattractive about our before selves. And it needs to stop.

Ep 15: My Grief

Loss and the grief that follows it is unimaginable. It's this awful club that none of us really want to belong to. But even though our pain and grief may manifest itself differently, we all know what it's like to have someone taken from us. It's unfair. But it's a huge part of who I am because when I lost my brother, I lost a piece of myself.

There’s nothing I wouldn’t give to have my brother back. It took a long time for my anger to turn into gratitude, but with time and patience, my grief changed the way I see the world and live my life. And honestly, running is a lot like grief. Neither ever gets easier. You just get stronger. And with time, you learn to live with the pain.

Ep 14: Rejection and Embracing No

Let's talk about my arch nemesis, rejection. I think rejection isn’t a death sentence, I think it’s just a reminder to work your patience muscle and keep fighting. Sometimes no does in fact mean no but more often than not, I think no really means not right now. But because our relationship to rejection, failure, and no is built on sand, we crumble and fall apart whenever it happens.

So what do you think? Do you agree that no doesn't always mean no? Let's talk about it!

Ep 13: Stop Saying I'll Start Tomorrow

Stuck in the vicious, "I'll start tomorrow" cycle?

I get it.

It's not just about how badly you want to make a change, sometimes life gets in the way! You're busy! Between work, family, friends, significant others, fur babies, and general life obligations, squeezing in a miserable 30 minute gym session or run can feel impossible.

Let's talk about saying yes to yourself and making a change once and for all.

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.

Ep 12: Authenticity and Our Need To Be Liked

Authenticity is a buzzy word that people LOVE to throw around. But it's hard to be authentic because we live in a hypercritical social media obsessed world where "likes" have created a new form of status and success. For me, being authentic is infinitely more important than being liked because I spent a long time deeply insecure, hiding behind a false sense of self. Then my brother died and I shattered. With time, I realized that it was so much easier to be the person I was instead of convincing the people around me I was someone I wasn't. So let's talk about our quest to be liked, validated, and understood!

What do you think about dragging your baggage into a room, fighting the urge to fix it or change it, and just sitting with it? Easy? Impossible? Let me know in the comments below!
