Friday Five & Purina Dog Lovin’ Giveaway

Who’s having a heat wave? My goodness it’s crazy hot, but it is summer. We’re slowly getting settled into Midwest living – thank you for all the awesome support. I’ve been running to get and know the neighborhood and we are surrounded by greenways. Whoop! Big race is this weekend, great timing huh?

It’s been go, go, go, but it keeps things exciting.

1. I’M WATCHING: The Tour De France as they climbed Alpe d’Huez. Holy beautiful, crazy athleticism. Team #USA with Tejay giving an awesome show. Having seen the Alps in all their glory myself, all I can say is what an adventure for the riders. The fans, the atmosphere, it’s such a beautiful show of stamina. Pleasant torture.


2. I’M READING: Shape’s “What Your Trainer Isn’t Telling You.” Some are downright funny, and some downright mean.

“If you think I’m talking to you, I’m talking to you.”
“Pay attention when I’m correcting your form. I’m doing it for your benefit, not just because I like bossing you around.”

3.I’M PINNING: Welcome to my new obsession, Cost Plus World Market.


4. I’M LISTENING TO: Can Robin Thicke do no wrong? His version of “I Love It” by Icona Pop on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge is amaze.

dog_chow5. We’re Giving Away: Indy wanted me to let your all in on a fun summer giveaway. Listen up dog lovers, Purina wants to share their goodies with your fur babe. I mentioned that the cool folks over at Purina gifted Indiana Jones with some delicious Light Dog Chow and a Light & Healthy puppy pack, including leash, pet pedometer (hilarious), water bowl, etc. The pack came in super handy when we were moving. Don’t forget the dog food he opened on his own.

Now you can enter to win a sweet gift pack for your dog. Your dog would want you to enter. If your dog had thumbs they’d already be entered.

Purina’s Summer Light & Healthy Kit includes samples of Purina Dog Chow Light & Healthy, doggie water bottle, bandanna, and other awesomeness. It’s super cute, trust us.


To Enter:
Comment below with your dog’s favorite summer activity. (Indy lounges in his doggy pool to stay cool.) Tweet your dog’s name (@livefortherun) and favorite toy to me for extra credit. You can follow Purina along as well. Indy will pick a winner next week!

Anybody planning any last minute summer vacays?

  1. We’re always dealing with god aweful heat so I feel your pain! You get used to it though…eventually. Good luck racing! I can’t wait to hear all about it. You’ll kick booty, I know it 🙂

    Well, although she’s slowing down, Izzy still loves to get out and run on a daily basis. She’s been so good adapting to the stroller and I can’t wait for the day she gets to play with Layla!

  2. Congratulations on your race, fast momma! You did amazing!
    Seriously- a pet pedometer?! That’s the cutest thing I’ve heard in a while!
    Although Harold would love to win from Indy, count us out. He has too many food allergies to enjoy the gift 😦
