Kelly Roberts

Kelly Roberts is the creator of the "Run, Selfie, Repeat" podcast, the free fitness movement the Badass Lady Gang and body-positive initiative #SportsBraSquad.

In 2009, Kelly’s younger brother unexpectedly passed away, and struggling to manage her grief, she gained more than 75 pounds. With the weight gain came insecurities and a new fight to regain her sense of self. Then one holiday morning, in an attempt to cope with her brother's absence and manage her grief and anxiety, she decided to go for a run. “I didn’t even reach the end of my block when, out of breath, I had to stop to walk. An hour and a half and three miles later I was home, feeling a sense of ease and clarity that I hadn’t felt since his passing.” Running has given her a way to manage her grief and remove the crippling shame from her body image.

Named by Women's Running as one of 20 women changing the sport of running and gracing the cover of the 2017 body issue, and by Competitor Magazine as one of 12 Influential and inspiring runners under 30, Kelly's mission is to inspire others to get embrace a healthy lifestyle and pursue the strongest version of themselves possible all while making them laugh hysterically.

In this episode we discuss:

-The Badass Lady Gang and how it evolved into such a powerful movement across the world
-How she got into running and coaching
-The types of runners she’s connecting with
-Growing her business
-Combatting the pervasiveness of diet culture in our society (this is her mission)
-Staying connected and motivated during the pandemic
