The Stunt Puppy “Stunt Runner” leash is the second hands-free leash I’ve owned, and is far superior to the first one I tried. The major difference between it and many others is that the main leash part is stretchy (stretches from 35 to 51 inches) to absorb pulling from your dog. This is great for controlling my sweet but unruly 70 lb. chocolate lab. Other features include:
- Black metal D-Ring on waist belt slides to preferred running position
- Waist belt adjusts 28”-49”, custom sizing available
- Simple, light weight design will not slow you down
If you are looking into trying compression, you have likely looked at a wall of products and wondered whether you should get socks or sleeves. There are pros and cons of both and it is important to do your research and determine what is best for you.
I’ve now tested both the socks and sleeves made by Legend Compression Wear. You can read my previous post for my thoughts on their socks. But basically, I like their products because they are “right not tight,” meaning that the level of compression is comfortable, not painfully restricting like some brands I’ve worn.
If you’re a runner or an athlete, chances are you’ve tried pain relief gels like Icy Cold or Tiger Balm before. I have personally tried a couple brands previously for muscle soreness during softball tournaments and more recently for running recovery. Pro tip: don’t apply to areas that are sunburned.
I’m no stranger to BUFF® Headwear, but this was the first time I’ve tried their merino wool version. The Merino Wool BUFF® is made of 100% natural merino wool, as compared to the usual microfibre polyester of the Original. Although merino wool is typically regarding as a moisture-wicking, winter fabric, it can also keep you cool in the summer. Merino will is also water repellent, odor resistant, flameproof, durable,and provides UV protection.
Earlier this year I reviewed the XX2i Bermuda1 sunglasses and loved them! I wear them all the time and they are my go-to pair of sunglasses for everything … running, driving, going to the beach. Naturally I jumped at the chance to review another pair from their lifestyle line, the XX2i Brazil1.
