I just tested out this week’s workout playlist’s wake-up capabilities, and let me tell you: It does the trick. So, use it, people! May the morning-workout force be with you.
You guys, just look at the EARS on this week’s adoptable running dog, Gladys. You can learn more about this young pup and how to adopt her below. Because how could you not want to?
Last week, we told you guys that Whole Foods had been caught overcharging customers for prepackaged foods (think: nuts, berries, fruit, seafood) in their New York stores. And now, our friends over at BizPhilly have alerted us that co-CEOs Walter Robb and John Mackey have issued a video apology, ’fessing up to overcharging customers, though they say it was unintentional.
It’s summer, guys. Which means cookouts, family reunions, Fourth of July parties, and barbecues galore. (Yay!)

A few weeks ago, we told you about the awesome new Facebook community that is the PHL Distance Walkers, which aims to connect all Philadelphians who enjoy long walks, whether that means three miles or thirteen (now that’s a long walk). Since then, the group has amassed over 370 members on Facebook. Woohoo!

The site will eventually include a blog, tips for distance walking, suggested walking routes, and a full calendar of organized events. So useful, right?
