Project Start: Meet Kelly Roberts—The #SportsBraSquad Leader

Welcome to Week 1 of Project Start! This week’s ambassador is blogger and runner Kelly Roberts, @kellykkroberts.

Who Is Kelly Roberts?

Kelly is the creator of running and lifestyle blog, “Run, Selfie, Repeat.” She is also one of Women’s Running‘s contributing bloggers. She is an avid runner, despite not having been an athlete growing up. She has also never been someone who thought of herself as a runner until she started. Through running, Kelly has grieved the loss of her brother, transformed her body, made amazing friends and captured hundreds of stories full of humor and triumph that she now shares via her blog.

Kelly is such an inspiration, and her blog posts always leave us in stitches! Thank you for sharing your story with us, lady!
