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…

Summer, Running, Training and Blogging

I can't believe that Lil Man has graduated from pre-school. It's been a great year for us. Truly, it's been wonderful, and I am sad to see it come to an end. Both Lil Man and I are struggling with leaving his awesome pre-school, but I know a new chapter awaits. And, I'm sure it will be great also. It's just a change. You know how that is.. change can be scary.. even if it's good.

But here comes summer.. and summer activities... and the balancing act of trying to figure out how to fit it all in.

In the past, the first thing that has been skipped has been my strength training.. or running.. or cross-training.. or all of the above.

I've added childcare back to my gym membership, and I'm planning on signing up for some personal training. I think this will help (or I hope) to keep me on track with my workouts. But I also know that's only once a week. So I've been charting out my tentative (and hopefully realistic) plan.

I plan to run 3 days a week (no specific mileage), cross train 2 days (but that may mean walking the amusement park or taking Lil Man to the swimming pool - trust me although it's fun, it can definitely be exhausting and a workout). And lift weights 3-5 days a week depending on what we have going on that week.

It looks like I'll be back to early morning workouts before Hubby goes to work. Now... to just force myself to get up... that's the hard part ... especially when I'm not getting a lot of sleep... but I know once I get back into the routine that it will be easier to continue to get up early.

As far as blogging goes, I'll be here. Truthfully, it's very discouraging to see the #'s or I should say lack of #'s when I look at stats when it comes to this tiny blog... but you know what... this is mine.... I've put a lot of time, energy, sweat and tears, but it's something that I enjoy... and for those 2 or 3 who read it.. thank you :) I plan to continue to write.. and to share 'me' with those of you who care to read it.

My family life is totally re-arranged during the summer... and it's a balancing act... but I wouldn't have it any other way...
