I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and just realized I still haven’t given it the 5 star review it deserves! Kelly has helped me become a runner and continue to run by fighting the idea that runners have to look a certain way or hit a particular pace. LOVE the guided runs and having a personal cheerleader to motivate and occasionally distract me on the run.

Thank you!

Rank #2: Ep 111: Screw Likable, Be You

Podcast cover
Read more

Look, there’s only one ingredient to likeability and that’s being authentically yourself. EASIER SAID THAN DONE! Why? Because true connection is rooted in truth, bravery, and trust. And when you're feeling unsure of yourself or like an outsider or other, it can feel impossible to believe that who you are is enough. BUT IT IS. Let's talk about why being liked by many isn't as important as it is to have people in your corner who like you for who you are. Scars, imperfections, beauty and all.

Rank #6: Ep 20: What Is Success

Podcast cover

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.

Rank #7: Ep 19: Online Shaming and Compassion

Podcast cover
Read more

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? 

If you haven't already, take a second to subscribe to this podcast on iTunes or Google Play and, if you're feeling extra generous, I would be beside myself with gratitude if you would give it a 5 star review.

Rank #8: Ep 123: BQ or Bust PLOT TWIST

Podcast cover
Read more

I've been chasing my impossible goal for two years. Two years of doubts, setbacks, fears, pain, suffering, and life-changing accomplishments. BQ or Bust, my journey to qualify for the Boston Marathon, started as a stunt. Something to keep me busy. A new goal that I was certain I'd give up on two months in. Two years later, I'm still chasing my BQ. 

I really hate the saying, "How bad do you want it?". Not because I don't believe it, because as someone who used to quit on myself often, it made me feel like a failure. Hearing that now, it doesn't upset me. It reminds me that things worth fighting for take time.

Let's talk about the latest BQ or Bust Plot twist!

Rank #10: Ep 130: The Transformative Power of, "YES I CAN!"

Podcast cover
Read more

I wish I would have known back when I first started running the empowering freedom that comes when you finally throw, "I can't do this" out the window and embrace, "YES I CAN". I STILL forget how transformative it is to assume success instead of bracing for failure. Today's episode of the Run, Selfie, Repeat podcast is all about that mental game and how we can get to a place where you truly believe you're capable of whatever goal you're chasing.

Rank #11: Ep 32: What Are You Insecure About?

Podcast cover
Read more

It all started when I realized that my weight on my State ID card is 140 pounds. Now I'm not even close to 140 pounds on the best day but I was instantly transported back to the 16 year old version of myself.  And it made me think about how insecure I used to be about my weight. I still am today, but it's different. Today I know my own strength and while I sometimes fumble, I mostly strut. So let's talk about what we're insecure about and how not to let our insecurities ruin our lives!

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.

Rank #13: Ep 42: Royally Ashamed: The London Marathon

Podcast cover

To say that the London Marathon wasn't my day is an understatement. I've never wanted to quit a race so badly in my life. But despite the fact that I didn't get the race I wanted, I still believe that the only way you can fail is if you fail to try. Last year, I set an impossible goal. And after one failed attempt, I was ready to make impossible, possible. Do I regret setting an impossible goal? Or why do I feel like I'm braving a breakup? Let's talk about what happened during the London Marathon.

Rank #14: Ep 24: Running For Your Life

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Podcast cover

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.

Why am I running? Why is running and getting motivated to run so hard? I'm coming back from an injury/break and I can't stop comparing and feel defeated about the fact that I used to run so much faster and stronger, WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? Why am I embarrassed about my pace? And why is quitting or throwing in the towel always an option? WELL, those are just a few of the very many things Dr. Robert Corb, the former Director of Sports Psychology at UCLA and a licensed Psychologist, and I talk about in this episode of the Run, Selfie, Repeat podcast. Because the truth is, I'm finally ready to talk to him about how hurt I am about what happened at the end of BQ or Bust. I feel unfocused. And angry. Luckily, Dr. Bob knows how to pull me out of that rabbit hole.

Taking the first steps towards making an impossible goal possible can feel paralyzing. From getting active, making a healthy lifestyle change, losing weight, running your first half marathon or marathon, to running a terrifying time goal like breaking 2 in a half, when your goal is so huge that it feels impossible, if you don't have prior success to call on, it's hard not to expect failure.

Let's talk about how to persevere and kick ass and take names when all signs point to failure.

Enjoying my guided runs? Support the podcast by becoming a Patron of my Patreon page! LEARN MORE Welcome to Week // 8 Run 2 of my new guided runs. TODAY’S WORKOUT: RUN A 5K! My name is Kelly Roberts and for most of my life, I was the self-proclaimed president of the "I f*cking hate running club". I’m not athletic. I spent most of my life trying to find ways to avoid running. The only reason I ever found motivation to get to a gym was to obsessively work to try to lose weight. Then I found myself just desperate enough to become a runner. My life was in a pause. I was drowning in grief after the death of my little brother and struggling to love the skin I was in. I’d just completed a weight loss journey and successfully lost the 75+ pounds I gained after he passed away. But suddenly, I felt numb and out of control. I didn’t see the strength I worked so hard to build. Running was so difficult and painful that I didn’t have time to feel sorry for myself. It took every single ounce of me to put one foot in front of the other. Simply put, becoming a runner saved my life. If you're looking for a new challenge or for a way to get active that won't make you hate yourself, spend the next 8 weeks with me. Run a 5K! It's not going to be easy and yes, it's going to hurt like hell but want to know what hurts more? Quitting. The only way you fail is if you fail to try! My new guided runs are will be available wherever you get your podcasts and each one will follow my free 8-week training plan, “Become a runner in 8 weeks”. Give it a download and then press play. You ready!?

And tell your friends! If you know someone who is looking to start running but doesn’t know where to start, challenge them to give this a try.
