Monday Motivation: 13 Funny Selfies For 13.1 Miles

One runner at the March 16 NYC Half Marathon shows us another reason why we could sign up for half marathons: encounters with hot and fit people—duh! Runner and Instagrammer, Kelly Roberts (@kellykkroberts) took 13 selfies with unsuspecting “hot men” for every mile she ran during this year’s NYC Half Marathon, tagging the photos #hotguysofnyc. The Instagram posts were a fun way for Roberts to motivate herself to get to the finish line while taking advantage of the race’s hot eye candy. So the next time you debate signing up for a half marathon, remember, the view can be fairly decent and no we’re not referring to landscape. Roberts finished in just under 2 hours, which isn’t bad considering she took at least 13 short breaks to take all of those selfies. By the way, her Twitter profile leads off with the quote: “There is a 100 percent chance I will regret this in 5 years.”
