Virtual Pug Run, Surprising Uses for Avocado & Reebok Skyscapes

Heyyyyyy! Happy Friday, friends!

I have five random things to tell you about this morning. Are you ready?! Here goes!

#1: Be sure to enter the two giveaways running on CNC right now: Win a free week of meals from Blue Apron and win $100 CASH! Cash money, people! Don’t skip this one! I will pick winners for both giveaways on Monday.

#2: Virtual Pug Run

This is the most amazing idea ever. I wish I had thought of it! Haha!

Shannyn from Frugal Beautiful is hosting a virtual pug run with 100% of proceeds benefiting the pug rescue that she volunteers with. Entries are $27 each and all registrants get a diecast pug unicorn medal (with glitter) mailed to their door. Every penny beyond cost goes to the cause and she’s attempting to raise $7,860 to save one pug per mile of the marathon.

The Virtual Pug Run

Shannyn’s fiancé is running his first marathon at the Chicago Marathon this fall, so if they hit their fundraising goal, he will run the entire race in a pug singlet. Amazing. Obviously, I’m already signed up for the virtual 10K. There’s no way I could miss being part of this!

#3: 9 Surprising Ways to Use Avocado

You may love guacamole, but there’s only so much you can eat, right? What else can you do with avocado?

Of course, avocado is delicious on its own (try eating some with a little sea salt as a snack), but it’s also incredibly versatile when it comes to snacking, cooking, and baking. Surprised? Here are 9 ways to use avocado in a whole new way!

#4: Protein-Packed Avocado Brownies. I must make these ASAP!

#5: Reebok Skyscapes. I love, love, love these new kicks from Reebok! They’re so comfy and so adorable! I’m pumped that the weather is starting to turn cooler, so I can wear them all the time now. They’re like slippers on my feet.

  1. I have the gray Skyscapes and I LOVE them. I didn’t know they come in more colors now! The red and white polka dot ones are adorable. I think I need another pair 😉

  2. Yummm those avocado brownies look awesome! I love mixing avocado and greek yogurt for a different version of chicken salad. I’ll do the same avo/yogurt method and mix it with lime, s&p, and cayenne and fill the middle of hard boiled eggs instead of yolk for a different take on deviled eggs”¦so yummy!

  3. Thank you sooooo much for posting about this Tina! It seemed like a longshot that we’d get 375 runners and save 26(.2) pugs, but we’re about to hit 100 runners and over $500 in donations… every runner, every share, every penny, helps so much.

    Seriously, thank you! We’re going to rock this Virtual Run and save some pugs!

  4. Love the polka dot skyscapes! I’ll be running Chicago so I will make sure to look for that pug singlet! I love to eat avocado on toast with an over-medium egg. Not surprising, but oh so good!

  5. I love adding avocado to any chunky salsa recipe to make it more of side salad or nutritious snack! Black bean and corn salsa with added chunks of guac is my fave.

    Also, that pug singlet is hilarious. Would love to see you and Mal in matching pug singlets! 😉

  6. I like to use avocado in my chocolate protein shakes to add some healthy fats and make it seem creamier like a milkshake!

    Skyscapes are cuuute. :]

  7. Ok Tina, I’m taking the plunge after all the skyscape love. Do you have any discount codes? Help this momma out! 🙂

  8. I think the pink poka dot skyscapes are sold out?! They’re not showing up on Reebok any more 🙁 I just needed a day to think about it! haha. wah! I wonder if/when they’ll sell them again?

  9. I haven’t really had time to fit running in lately, but I think I’ll HAVE to at least donate to that. That man MUST run wearing the pug singlet. That. Is. Fantastic.
