About the author:
Kelly Roberts

Kelly Roberts is the former president of the “I Hate Running Club.” While struggling to grieve the loss of her brother and maintain a healthy body weight (after losing over 75 pounds), she thought, “What better way to run from my problems than to actually run from my problems?” Since those painful first runs, she’s conquered everything form marathons to 5Ks and hasn’t looked back. She created her blog RunSelfieRepeat.com to inspire others to get active while making them laugh hysterically – because laughing, in her opinion, is the solution to everything. You can find her on Twitter, Instagram and Spapchat (mostly eating cheeseburgers, taking selfies with handsome men or terrorizing her sister) via @KellyKKRoberts or on her YouTube channel!
