Pugs who Yelp! + Featured Sneakers #26

This weekend we were able to take Jaeden to his first Yelp Event! He begged his dad for a bath so that he could impress the crowd and prance with swagger 😉

We got to try out a cute local bakery in Seminole Heights, Mikey’s Bakery, and also a pet store called Health Mutt. Jaeden got to meet some of our Yelp friends, including our community manager (Brett) who he immediately high-pawed upon arrival.
I loved that they had healthy treats for the pups to try. Jaeden tore up a bunch of gluten free  as well as meaty duck and salmon treats! I think he even gave me a wink so that I could acknowledge his attempt at healthy eats .. I think 😉
Jaeden made friends with a few Frenchies, even getting many compliments on him being the most active 12 year old pup anyone had ever met. His ego = huge now. I think he can thank Neocell’s Arthropet for that 😉
Oh, and we did take home a treat from Mikey’s: a butter pecan cupcake! At $1.95 we were very impressed and enjoyed our weekend treat!

This week’s Featured Sneakers belong to Megan! Yes, she’s like the 15th Megan I know, but they’re all so lovely 🙂 She’s a fellow dog-lover, runner, and foodie I met doing the Yelp Elite bit – she also loves Disney and running all around the Magic Kingdom! She’s training to run Dopey in 2014 (and said – and I quote “why why why did I do that to myself….”) In November, she’ll get the Triple Crown with the Rock n Roll series in Savannah!

Name: Megan Wood
Blog: I Run For Wine (www.irunforwine.net)
What is your favorite way to workout/exercise: Running! 2nd is Yoga.
What is your #1 cheat food: A Maine Lobster Roll w/ hand cut fries. The bun has to be buttered and toasted or it isn’t real!
What advise do you have for those starting on a fitness journey: Do not compare yourself to others. You started this for a reason and make goals for yourself. Keep a schedule you can continue with. Your workout will become the most important part of your day.

Dream destination race/location: Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon – Running through Wine Country is a dream!
Favorite inspirational fitness personality/trainer: I’ve always looked up to Bob Harper.
Workout apparel must have (+brand): I’m partial to Nike apparel. Asics, Brooks & Saucony for shoes (what I wear depends on distance).
Motivational motto/quote: Don’t freak out if your friends are faster than you. Always remember that you’re faster than those sitting on the couch.

Any questions for Megan or myself?
Do you like to take your fur baby out on the town?

    I’m not going to lie. I got a bit excited thinking J was going to be your MM feature. Riley did, too. Now I have to deal with an upset doggie… 😉

    How fun!! We were supposed to go to the Yelp Elite, but Matthew has not been comfortable around small doggies lately so I didn’t want to take any chances of putting him in an uncomfortable situation! Looks like a blast, though and yum on the cupcake!!

      YAY! I want to rescue another pug, Jaeden is just too old right now! There’s a ton of rescues all of the country for both – huge difference in size, but same stubborn demeanor on both dogs lol

    Fur babies love the park… I think Megan would like the park as well. You all should have made it a group trip. Megan does a lap, pets the pup. Megan does another lap, pup gets a cookie… I think Megan is doing all the work, but the pup had a long day of being swagger certified.
