I would normally save this announcement for our weekend guide on Thursday, but since I’m 99 percent sure it’ll be sold out by then, I wanted to give you plenty of lead time.
There are really no words for this one, except maybe: wow. Just … WOW.
Look, you don’t have you spend your entire day on Sunday in prep-mode for the week ahead. But if you carve out some time to tackle one or two (or, hey, all) of the things on this list, you’ll set yourself up for the best, easiest, most no-brainer week ever—guaranteed.
Age: 1 to 2 years old
Breed: Pit bull terrier mix
Size: 46 pounds
Background: Chico was found as a stray.
Where you can find him: PAWS Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic in Grays Ferry.
Running style: Tune in, Chico! This dapper pup is all ears for your springtime racing and training goals. He’s got some goals of his own, and the Monster Milers volunteers are working hard to help him get there. At the shelter, Chico is learning how to play nicely and be sociable with other dogs and people, and his new running habit goes hand in hand with his practice of calm, quiet manners for use in his forever home. (Plus, he looks great in a bowtie, don’t you think?)

Here are four lovey-dovey runs to check out this year.
Don’t while away your weekend by sitting around in front of a Netflix marathon. Get out and sweat a little (or a lot!) with our fun fitness picks.

So this post is less for me, and more for those of you who are actually insanely hard-core bike commuters. (Kudos, by the way.)
