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…

When The Road Calls

There are some days that the treadmill just won't cut it. You know what I mean? Well today was one of those days. I had planned on attempting my first 5 miler (since injury). And the thoughts of being in my basement, on the treadmill just didn't sound like the way that I wanted to do it.

I had originally planned to meet some friends at 5:30am, but those plans changed. Instead, I was able to run an hour later (hello daylight)  However, I had my (affiliate link) Knuckle Lights ready. I love my knuckle lights and use them quite often. I actually forget I'm even carrying them.

So I got dressed to attempt my 5 miles, opened the door, and it was snowing.


I smiled, kissed Lil Man and Hubby goodbye and
off I went. The first mile or two, the snow was falling at a steady rate. After that it eased up. But it was beautiful, and it was what I needed today.

Nothing like a bone chilling running to clear your head.... :) 

Slower than pre-injury, but I'm trying to focus on each new milestone with this injury. 


So I'm pleased with myself for 5 miles today. And I'm glad that I was able to get outside for today's outdoor workout with the #LJFitChallenge

So, do you exercise outside in the winter?

  1. Good for you! I run outside year round, but I draw the line at zero. Today we're below so it was the mill for me.
