This woman spent a whole marathon taking selfies with hot guys

Well, fair play.

RUNNING A MARATHON is not easy, as a lot of Dubliners would have found out last weekend. It’s not easy to run, nevermind take selfies during.

The moment I found @sweatgracenyc one mile after I thought I missed her. I can't get over how kick ass today was. Running a marathon is slightly traumatizing and ridiculously painful but it's infinitely more fun and rewarding. I can't believe I can run a mile yet alone run a marathon. I never thought I could be a runner. I like to think that people are born runners and others are made. #RunSelfieRepeat #TCSNYCMarathon #nycmarathon #np_nyc kellykkroberts kellykkroberts

The New York marathon is 26.2 miles, and Kelly Roberts ran it yesterday. So why is she getting so much attention today?

Look at these selfies she took in pursuit of finding the perfect marathon boyfriend.

Risky business baby. Here we go! Who's ready to play my all time favorite game #baesofthenycmarathon?!?!?!?! Let's find a boyfriend! #tcsnycmarathon #RunSelfieRepeat #nycmarathon kellykkroberts kellykkroberts

Her first selfie, with a guy dressed as Tom Cruise in Risky Business, was captioned:

This guy didn’t look too interested

Mile eighteen and she’s still on baewatch. What a woman

Mile 18 got me like kellykkroberts kellykkroberts

She even managed to get one last bae in her victory shot

I can't believe it happened. I can't even tell you how I feel right now but it's the best feeling in the world. It's been my goal since my first marathon back in 2013 to break 4 hours and it just happened. My body hurts so much right now but my heart couldn't be happier. I did it. I fucking did it. Screw looking for a boyfriend, I'll take this PB any day. #tcsnycmarathon #RunSelfieRepeat #nycmarathon #BAESoftheNYCmarathon kellykkroberts kellykkroberts

On completion, she wrote:

As founder of Run, Selfie, Repeat, Kelly believes that everyone can and should fall in love with sweating, regardless of their fitness level and aims to inspire others to run marathons.

Roberts pulled a similar stunt during a half marathon last year, and while she went viral she was criticised by some who asked would it be so amusing if the gender roles were reversed.
