Hello! Welcome to the Run Eat Repeat podcast… Today I’m talking with Kelly Roberts – creator of ‘Global Sports Bra Squad Day’! *It’s July 13th 2019! She’s amazing and super open with her journey going from hating running to running marathons to creating a worldwide movement helping people love their bodies. And just a head’s up – Kelly and I are on the same page with most things but have very different opinions on a certain California food establishment and it might be a little offensive to some.
The Stretch of the Day is a seated shin stretch… it’s kind of a weird one in that it doesn’t look like a typical stretch but feels good.
Stretch AFTER your run or workout. Be gentle and listen to your body.
Remember – Always consult with your doctor before starting a new diet or exercise program. Stop if there is any pain. Be smart, safe and kind to your body.
Now let’s get running with Kelly Roberts…
Kelly Roberts is an inspiration on social media. But if you don’t read her captions you might not know she’s struggled with body image.
In college her brother passed away very unexpectedly and she shut down. As she tried to deal with the tragedy she gained a lot of weight.
But with support of her family, friends and a professor in her nutrition class she eventually decided to get healthy and lost 75 pounds. Eventually she found running – and shares training, victories and struggles on her website and podcast. Now she’s about to lead the 2nd Global Sports Bra Squad Day and is here to tell us how it all started and how we can participate.

Awards for this week:
1. OB Tampons – they are the best. I think they’re good for the environment because they don’t have an applicator AND they’re easy to stick in your sports bra or key pocket.
Here’s a link to the OB Tampons Multi-Pack with different sizes in one box.
2. Spray sunblock for hard to reach places. This Alba Botanica Spray Sunblock is spf 50 and on sale right now too!
3. Tom’s shoes – I wear them so much I might start running in them!
