My Thoughts On The Rad Dog Release N Run Leash

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a Release N Run Leash for free from Rad Dog in consideration for a gear review. All opinions are mine and honest in nature

If you've been anywhere near me, then you know that Miles is a huge part of our lives. If you haven't met Miles, here is a picture of him when he was just a baby pup. Miles is a Mountain Cur.

Now, he will be 2 in December, and he's still just as adorable. He thinks he's a huge lap dog. He loves to lay on the back of the couch. It's ridiculous, but we love him.

He is my running buddy, but he's also Hubby's hunting dog. This means that he's outside a lot. When I run with him, he's usually on a leash. When he's with Hubby, he's usually off leash once they are in a safe place away from traffic. Hubby uses a tracking collar, but he needs a leash when they get near roads, or when he needs to make sure that he stays out of certain areas.

I wish we would have had the Release N Run l…

2 Weeks Away

The marathon is just a little over 2 weeks away. I'm back to running this week. I've made it through back to back days of 6 mile runs. They weren't stellar, and I wouldn't win any age group awards. But I feel they were solid 6 mile runs. I don't want to over analyze it as it will just make me nervous.

I'm not sure how I will handle my Long Run this weekend. If I were doing a true 'taper' it would be 12 miles. But at this point my training plan is so messed up, I don't know if I'm coming or going. I don't see myself doing 20. I might do an 18, or a 16. I think I'm going to let my body dictate what to run this weekend. At this point in the game, my goal is not to get injured and to try to stay well. I don't think that pushing through a super long run at this point will really benefit me too much (especially if it pushes me farther back than forward). We'll see. I'm trying not to 'over think it'.

I do know that tomorrow is a rest day. I'm glad since last night didn't bring a lot of sleep. Lil Man is still having a hard time sleeping since he got the flu.

2 Weeks.. wow.. that's not that long...


  1. I think you are wise to just focus on stay healthy rather than trying to get all the miles and training you can get in. With the sickness you just went through, finishing the marathon should be your sole goal. Don't worry about time, just enjoy the journey. By the way, what marathon are you running?

  2. Yep, not worried about time. Thankfully this race doesn't have a time limit. I'm doing the Garden Spot Village Marathon

  3. Good luck with the last two weeks preparation. At this point its better to just go through the game plan. Over doing it now would be a disaster. Good luck, get some rest! - M

    1. Thanks.. I've decided since I'm still hacking a little that I'm going to keep it at 12 tomorrow and hope for the best! :)

  4. I like that idea of letting your body dictate the run during these last two weeks. Go out and just take each mile as it comes and see where it takes you. It is taper regardless of what all has gone on! :) Many good wishes on the race!!! I think I'm running a half in two weeks myself. I need to double-check my calendar. I'm so busy lately I forget what is when!
