Where have you been all my life internet stranger? Don't answer that, it doesn't matter. You're here now. So, let's get to know eachother. My story made headlines when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the NYC Half Marathon in 2014. Despite the fact that I am now 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, helped me grieve a loss, and has helped me maintain a healthy body weight. It’s shown me that I really am limitless. Running has also given me an excellent excuse when I want to be lazy and go to bed early on the weekends. "I can't, I have to run in the morning" is my favorite excuse.

In the two years since I started running, I’ve run multiple half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks, and two full marathons.
I created my blog to help inspire others to find the courage to say yes to themselves all the while making them laugh hysterically because laughing, in my opinion, is the solution to everything. Run, Selfie, Repeat 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. So check it out!
