I have my first trail marathon on Saturday. I have been training a ton and am going to this race 6 hours from home all by myself. I’ve done marathons in the past, but this one is going to be really tough! I didn’t think this guided run series would apply to my situation...BUT, as I was listening to the 5k run day I realized that I needed to download this for my race, possibly to listen to on repeat. It will be so awesome to have such a positive encouraging voice in my ear!!! Thanks Kelly ❤️

Rank #1: Week 8 Run 2: RUN YOUR 5K Guided Runs

Podcast cover
Read more
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!?

 

DON'T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE RUN, SELFIE, REPEAT PODCAST ON ITUNES,GOOGLE PLAY, AND SPOTIFY AND, IF YOU'RE FEELING EXTRA INCREDIBLE AND AMAZING, I WOULD APPRECIATE YOU FOREVER IF YOU COULD LEAVE ME A 5-STAR RATING AND REVIEW ON ITUNES. 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.

Podcast cover

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 83: Tina Muir on Health and Life Post Elite Running

Podcast cover
Read more

Today on the Run, Selfie, Repeat podcast, my friend and a badass who is changing the running game, Tina Muir. Tina recently made headlines when, at the top of her game as an elite runner, she decided to not only retire but open up about her struggle with amenorrhea as well. Tina's vulnerability and openness are two of the many reasons why so many women have joined her "Running for Real" community. From life post-retirement to what she hopes for her daughter (after 9 years without her period, Tina is now pregnant with a little girl!!!), this episode is a candid and honest talk about what it's like to run for your life at the top level. For more Tina, you can find her on TinaMuir.comFacebook, Twitter, or Instagram

CRAAAAZZZYYYY how things can change in a year!! I wasn't sure whether to post this, feeling self conscious, and thought people might react negatively, but oh well, here's to being brave.🙊 This time a year ago, I was about to run the #londonmarathon, I ended up smashing my PB of 2:41 to run a 2:37 and finish 2nd in the championship section of the race. I don't know how much I weighed, but I was in the best shape I had been in, both physically and mentally. One year later, and quite a few pounds heavier, I have not run in almost 5 weeks. But I CHOSE this. Last year I achieved some big goals, but now I have an even more important one, recovering from amenorrhea and getting my body ready for a family. I'm not gonna lie and say it's not hard looking at that photo and seeing me right now, BUT I am learning to love my curves, and I am definitely enjoying the food I am eating 😋🍰🎂🍦🍪🍩, allowing myself to let loose, rest, and heal after 14 years of complete dedication.🏃‍♀️ There are many ups and downs in every stage of life, but even in that moment, like that one on the left, I still wanted to look better, I still wasn't totally happy. I don't think we ever will be, all we can do is love our bodies and respect them. I know I am not "big" by any means, but this comparison shows the difference. My body has a new journey to embark on, and I plan to embrace it as best I can. I'm still me, right? *hesitates to push publish*.....aaaand GO

After my brother passed away, my birthday became a tough day to get through. Grief is tough. And on the day where I'm supposed to be celebrating my life, it's hard not to think about how I spent another year without him. But one thing his passing has done is make me aware of how fleeting our time really is.

Today, I want to talk about how important it is that we make the most out of the time we have.

Anything worth doing is going to be hard. YES. But we need to talk about not shying away from the things we really suck at.

Rank #10: Ep 51: FAT

Podcast cover
Read more

On a car ride back from a family reunion, we listened to episode 589 of This American Life titled "Tell Me I'm Fat". The episode started off with this eye opening statistic-- ⅓ of Americans are classified as overweight and another ⅓ are obese. And then, the four acts went on to pose the idea that maybe it’s time to rethink the way we see being fat.

YES. OF COURSE IT'S TIME TO RETHINK THE WORD FAT. The fact most people who are struggling with their weight, fat or not, struggle with such intense feelings of shame, self loathing, and disgust is unacceptable.

I’ve lost so many years of my life consumed with how much I weighed, convinced that I needed to lose X amount of weight in order to be beautiful or happy. I don't care how many times I have to say it, strength doesn't look a certain way, it feels a certain way. 

We don't just need to change the way we feel about the word fat, but we need to change the way we (specifically women) see themselves. Today's episode is a tough one but it's an important one.

Rank #11: Ep 84: Bouncing Back From Failure

Podcast cover
Read more

Sometimes, even when you have every single tool in your toolbox, and you still fail or fall short making whatever you set out to do a reality, it’s hard not to question yourself. Why you’re working towards making your impossible goal, possible. You can't help but ask yourself if you’re good enough. If you’re cut out for it. If it’s worth it. Or if the disappointment and hurt are worth trying again.

And the answer doesn’t always have to be a resounding, "Yes!". Here’s the value in having the courage to crash and burn after giving 100%: Eventually, you'll crawl out of the hell hole you find yourself in with a completely different outlook. You know how hard you can work. You know what it felt like to doubt yourself and prove yourself wrong. You see the power of hard work and persistence. And most importantly, you learn firsthand that anything worth doing isn't just going to be hard, but takes a hell of a lot of time, patience, and persistence.  

Bouncing back from failure isn’t something you can do overnight. I don’t care how many Pinterest quotes you put onto your vision board, you can’t fight through the fog or pull yourself out of the shame cave until you’re ready. You can’t force yourself to move past it. When you’re ready to take the next step, you’ll know. And you’ll be able to see what you can do differently a hell of a lot more clearly.

The only way you'll fail is if you fail to try. I truly believe that. Not every day is going to be the one you worked for. But as long as you keep putting one foot in front of the other, anything is possible.

Don't forget to subscribe to the Run, Selfie, Repeat podcast on iTunes (or you can listen to it on Google Play), and, if you're feeling extra incredible and amazing, I would really appreciate it if you could leave me a 5-star rating and review on iTunes!

Rank #12: Ep 50: 70% of Women Don't Like Their Bodies And It's Not OK

Podcast cover

This week, I'm in Seattle visiting with Oiselle talking Girls on Track (GOT Bras) and what we can do empower the sisterhood. (Hint Hint -- National #SportsBraSquadDay is coming. June 24th. Mark your calendars.) One of the serious badasses here at Oiselle, Megan Murray, shared some sobering statistics with me that broke my heart and it is my hope that they make you really, really angry as well. Ready?

The National Eating Disorders Association found that 70% of women report they don’t like their bodies, and that 89% of women have dieted by age 17. THOSE NUMBERS AREN'T OK. Here's what I want to ask you, at what point will we be happy? What will it take for you to realize that you aren't just good enough but that you're already the best version of yourself possible?

I need to talk about what we can do to make this number disappear.

Rank #15: 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.

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 #18: Ep. 144: Don't Let "Realistic" Goals Stop You From Dreaming

Podcast cover
Read more

One of the emails I get ALL THE TIME goes a little something like this, "I really want to run (insert time or distance goal) this year but I don't think it's (insert "realistic", "doable", or "in the cards for me"). I'm only a (insert self-limiting adjectives here) and I just don't know if it's worth my time." OR this one, "I really want to break 2 hours in the half but I've tried a few times and always finished seconds short. I'm heartbroken and now I'm running so much slower than I was a few months ago. I don't know what to do." Something like that.

It doesn't matter if you aren't athletic and are thinking about running your first 5K, 10K, half marathon or marathon or if you're chasing a seemingly impossible time or distance goal, NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU'RE CAPABLE OF. Not you. Not me. 

And the way I see it, any goal is a realistic goal if you're ready to work for it. Maybe it'll take years to make happen. Maybe it'll take months. Just don't let "realistic" stop you from chasing your dream goal.

Rank #19: Ep 19: Online Shaming and Compassion

Podcast cover

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?

Podcast cover

What do you do when trust is broken? When you make a mistake and discover that you're being vilified online? Do you hide your head in the sand? Pretend you didn't do anything wrong? Or own your mistake and ask for forgiveness?

It's been a rough few days. The cyber bullying I'm facing is nothing short of horrifying and disappointing and in this episode of the Run, Selfie, Repeat podcast, I want to talk about my mistake, the bullying, and forgiveness. 

Mistakes happen. I'm not going to pretend that I didn't let myself, my sponsors, or all of you down. A part of me wants to retreat and give up. But my mission to give the transformative and empowering gift of running to women everywhere is so much bigger than my hurt and my fears.

So let's talk about mistakes, online bullying, and forgiveness.
