Kelly Roberts Shares Why You Just Need To Start—Running

This week’s featured Project Start ambassador and Women’s Running contributing blogger, Kelly Roberts (@kellykkroberts), tells us what inspired her to get started, and how running has changed her life for the better.

Her Message

“I’m able to actually run 5, or 10, or 6,  or 13 miles without stopping makes me feel so unstoppable and empowered. It’s just the best feeling in the world knowing that you’re able to do it, and that it’s just your choice, and that it can be so much fun,” says Kelly.
