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.

One Of Those Days When Life Gets In The Way

Well, today was "one of those days". You know the one, where you are driving down the interstate and your car window gets stuck and won't roll back up. It of course was only 8 degrees and 6:30am. And of all places, I was on my way to register my son for pre-school, which in itself is ridiculous. See, registration opened at 8:45am. But unless you got there super early, then chances were slim that you'd get into the class. At around 6:30ish, I was number 16 at that point.

Yeah, that's how my day started, and the morning didn't seem to get much better. My plans of going to the gym were also side railed. So I tried another option.

I told Lil Man we could watch a movie while I ran on the treadmill. He seemed in agreement with that. So that's just what we did. He is currently into The Polar Express. (He calls it the train movie).


So, he got comfy on the couch while I got in my walk/run. I was actually 'allowed' to run 1.5 miles today during today's walk session. And today's walk/run was 50 minutes instead of 40. Progress people - I see progress. 

Tomorrow's plan is for 4 miles (my longest so far). I'm planning to hopefully finally get outside in the bitter cold and run with some other running buddies (or well at least run part of the time with them.) They are running farther, and possibly faster than me, but at least I will be out there 'with them'. And right now, after today, I think that's exactly what I need.
