#BWPSelfie of the Week: “I’m the One Getting the Puppy Kiss”

Meet Amber and

Meet Amber and Boodrick, our #BWPSelfie-takers of the week!

Welcome to the #BWPSelfie of the Week! Read about why we’re celebrating selfies—and the sweaty Philadelphians who take them—below. 

Name: Amber Adamson

Day job: Director of Advancement for the Delaware County SPCA

Where she snapped this: Springfield, Delaware County

What she was doing: Cooling down after training for the Delco SPCA’s Bark in the Park 5K run. I’m the one getting the puppy kiss.

Who she was with: Boodrick is a seven-year-old Boston terrier who has lots and LOTS of energy, unlike his pug (slug?) sister. After coming home to a chewed-up couch (for the second time!), I realized I needed to start including him in my running routine.

Number of races they’ve run together: This is the first one! He’s excited to make his running debut at the Bark in the Park 5K at Rose Tree Park in Media on October 25, which is a two- and four-legged race (and walk, too!) benefiting the Delco SPCA, a lifesaving animal-welfare organization.

Where they train: The hills of Delaware County. He loves running the trails at Ridley Creek State Park.

Why she’s obsessed with animals: It’s hard not to be when I’m surrounded at work by the cutest faces waiting for their forever homes. I dare anyone to visit our Adoption Center in Media and not leave with a new fur baby.

How she stays motivated to sweat: Brunch. I run for brunch. Also, the great running community in the Philly area, but mostly for brunch.

Editor’s note: The #BWPSelfie of the Week is our way to give a virtual high-five to Be Wellers who are sweating up a storm, making deliciously healthy meals, trying new adventures, and having all kinds of fun in and around Philly. So we want you to send us your healthiest, happiest selfies—tag ‘em #BWPSelfie on Instagram and Twitter, or email them—and we could feature you in an upcoming edition.
