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.

Freak Tape Kinesiology Tape

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

As you know, this year I'm including more trail running and strength training into my routine (#TuesdayTidbit - Trail Running Tips for Beginners) and I'm finding that my ankles aren't as strong as I thought they were.  My trainer is really helping me with strength building, but I'm finding that I could use a little extra support (especially when I'm on the trail).

I had the opportunity to try Freak Tape Kinesiology tape.

I need to watch some more "how-to" videos on different ways to wrap, but right now this is one that works best for me. It's simple and quick. 

My thoughts? It was easy to apply, stayed on very well, and seemed to have a lot of 'stretch' to it when I applied it. I had to make sure that I didn't pull too hard and  get too much tension. So I think I will be able to use less of this tape compared to others. I usually try not to have any lotion on when I apply it, but I forgot and put lotion on earlier that morning. I didn't think the Freak Tape Kinesio tape would stick, but to my surprise it did. And it stayed on without any issues (now keep in mine that I had socks on over it). 

But overall, I feel that the Freak Tape Kinesiology tape helps provide some stability while I'm out on the trail, or when doing activities that require a little more stability. If you are in the market for some kinesio tape, or you've never tried tape before, I encourage you to check out Freak Tape
