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.

Wanna Dance? Ballroom Dance Mastery System Giveaway

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

As most of you know I have no rhythm, and two left feet, remember Zumba? (I Zigged When They Zagged)

But I've always admired the grace of those who could dance whether it's ballroom dancing, salsa, hip-hop - you name it. So I was curious to see if someone like me could learn ballroom dancing from a video.

I was given the opportunity to try the Dance Crazy presents Ballroom Dance Mastery System for beginners. (And a quick sigh of relief that it was for beginners!) I'm not going to lie, I was a little nervous when I put the DVD in. But I was home alone, and no one was watching (except Tula the Maltese and I think she snickered.)

The video started, and there was a quick introduction of the Foxtrot. The dancers demonstrated the step which didn't seem overly complicated. But I did have a 'Huh?' moment once the move was finished.

But to my surprise the step was demonstrated again, and then again from another angle, and once again and several more times. And it was slow enough to see what was being taught, but not so overly slow that I wanted to 'hurry them up'.  However, I learned the step for the lead. Then I had to 're-learn' the step to 'follow'. Yeah, I'm not so great with switching up left and right. But once the 'lead' portion was demonstrated. Then the 'follow' was demonstrated.

The DVD can be played from beginning to end, or you can choose the different sections. So for anyone who catches on faster than me, you can move ahead. For anyone who needs a little refresher you can choose a particular section to watch.

Oh, and did I mention there are 7 DVDs in this set? It includes the Foxtrot, volumes 1 and 2 of the Waltz, volumes 1 and 2 of the Swing, and volumes 1 and 2 of the Rumba.

I don't see me ever being a professional, but I do a have a little confidence that with these DVDs I might be able to bust a ballroom dance move :)
