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.

Just Get Outside And Run

Since my last snowy adventure on the Appalachian Trail (you can read that here) I haven't been back out running. I don't mind (so much) the cold on the trail, but running in the cold on the road, just hasn't seemed like fun. And, I'm pretty much over the treadmill at the moment.

So I've been cross training

But, with an upcoming race, I know I need to get some mileage in.

So today, I forced myself outside.
The temps were the low 30's so it wasn't terribly cold, but I had to give myself a pep talk to get out there. I wasn't feeling 100% (pesky hormones!)

But I'm glad I forced myself outside.

It was slow.

That's ok.

It wasn't necessarily easy.

That's ok.

Because, I got myself dressed, out the door, and ran. And today, that was exactly what I needed.

How about you? Did you take time for yourself today?

  1. Some good points here. When the weather isn't being too agreeable, it can be difficult to get yourself out there. But it's important to do it! Nothing beats a run outside. Looks like you saw some great views while out, too.

  2. Cross training! Sounds nice!Love your pictures!
