Earlier this month, Wally and I decided to the 10k distance of the Scooby-Doo Scoobtober Virtual Run. We did so well last month during the Scooby-Doo Do Good 5k, that we decided to take on the challenge of the extra 3.1 miles for the the Halloween-themed run. I try to be the best dog-mom, but I noticed I haven’t been walking Wally much. The Scooby-Doo run series helped me get Wally out the door which made him a happier pup!


Happy Birthday to you Wally! Yes, I made him a hat and this is him on his actual birthday earlier this month. Hear how he asks for a hotdog treat  here .

On October 1st, Wally turned 9-years-old! In human years, that’s about 56-years-old, which means technically he just entered the senior category of dog ages according to Pet Health Network. Wally still might act like a puppy with his playful ways, but that doesn’t mean he has the stamina of one.

Our Scoobtober 10k effort must be deliberate. We only go for a half a mile maximum. His pace varies from a 14 to a 20 minute mile. Also, even though it’s cooler out, the pavement is still warm. I try to get him outside before noon or after 6 p.m. for our 25 minute average walks.

We only have 4 more walks to go until we reach our goal! The swag he’ll get is really pretty and will look nice against his cream colored fur. I’ll keep you posted on how Wally does on his last leg of this 10k. So far, so good!

Santa came early this year!

I’m proud to announce that I was chosen to be a 2018 BibRave Pro. This group is something I’ve wanted to be a part of for the past few years and I’m in disbelief that they chose me.

You’re probably wondering what is BibRave and what exactly does a BibRave Pro do? Here’s the rundown:

BibRavePro Andrea Heser

BibRave is a running community that connects runners with the best races. It’s a place to research races you are considering signing up for and to leave feedback for races you participated in. They are also a place to connect with other runners and with their group of ambassadors – the BibRave Pros (which I’m now a part of!)

Their pros not only review races and share discount codes but also they review running products — from tech to food — and give honest feedback. See some of my race reviews here: https://www.bibrave.com/users/126267

BibRave also puts out a yearly list of the 100 best races in America with categories like top marathons, halfs, 10ks, 5ks, medals and bling, race management and even course scenery. 

I’m excited for running in the New Year!
