My Thoughts On The Rad Dog Release N Run Leash

Image
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…

Do You Know About WTRMLN WTR?

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.

I had hoped to get some time to write while we were away these last 3 weeks. I think this the longest that I've ever been away from home, and we had a great trip. However, I just couldn't seem to fit in writing. We were really just too busy working on projects.

I've lived in Pennsylvania for almost 8 years now, and I know that I have acclimated to the climate here. I was not prepared for the heat and humidity in Mississippi and Texas.

My morning runs were less than stellar. In fact, I had barely made it a quarter of a mile some days when I felt the need to walk. I had 30 minutes to get in a workout before our day began (due to sunrise). So my workouts were usually shorter than normal.




As we were doing outside work in Texas, I knew the importance of hydration and keeping my electrolytes balanced. I'm not a fan of sports drinks. First of all, I really don't like the taste. Second, have you read the ingredients? I can't pronounce most of them. But by the 3rd or 4th day of working outside, my legs had started cramping ... and I mean bad. I knew it was past time for something other than water. Because it was all that I had at the time, I turned to a traditional sports drink. I encourage you not to underestimate the importance of electrolytes, but I believe you should also know what you are putting into your body - including chemicals in sports drinks.

And I believe I may have found a healthy alternative to traditional sports drinks. It's called WTRMLN WTR



It's cold pressed watermelon juice, with watermelon rind and a touch of organic lemon. It has 6 times the electrolytes of most traditional sports drinks. It contains 60% daily value of vitamin C, plus contains lycopene and L-Citrulline, and zero (that's right) zero added sugar. 

One serving has 60 calories (a bottle is 1.5 servings) with 740mg of potassium per serving. 

How did it taste? I gave it a try after a hot evening run once we were back home in PA. 


And I liked it. I am not a huge watermelon fan, but I liked it. The lemon was a nice touch. It didn't leave an aftertaste, and I definitely felt refreshed after drinking it. 

Would I use it in place of a traditional sports drink? I sure will. This is what I will also be giving Hubby when he needs more than just water. 

I really encourage you to check it out - I'm definitely a new fan of WTRMLN WTR
