Summer Running… Yuck!

I’m over it! I am ready for fall. Summer has made me sleepier than normal and hot. I don’t think I enjoy summer running at all. 

June was better than July and July was way better than August has been thus far lol!

I also can’t decide if I love or loathe this run streak either. I don’t want to run right now and so I loathe it but I know that if it weren’t for the streak I would not be running right now and so I think I love it lol!

The run streak has definitely has kept me accountable.  I can’t say I am killing my runs or even running much more than a mile a day but I am getting out there swimming, I mean running, through the thick humid summer air!

In June I managed to run 146 miles and 101 miles in July.  I am pretty happy with that! Last year I ran 54 miles in June and 74 miles in July, they were two of my lowest mileage months. Looks like I am trending lol!

I’ve been giving myself some grace. Since I am not really training for anything yet I am cutting myself some slack and just listen to my body and not push too hard or too far. 

I am super ready for fall though! Bring on the cool crisp running air!!

How do you stay cool on your summer runs? What’s the best summer running tip you have?

Stunt Puppy Go Dog Glo™ Harness Review - LeRoy's feedback included ;)

Disclaimer: I received the Stunt Puppy Go Dog Glo™ Harness to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

This puppy of mine is so freaking cute I can hardly stand it! He absolutely goes nuts when I tell him he has mail. I knew that the Stunt Puppy Go Dog Glo™ Harness had arrived and when we got home I told him he had a package. He seriously knows what that means and made a bee line to the house. He was so excited to find out what had come in the mail for him. 

Watch his unboxing video:

LeRoy is a little pup, he is a soon to be two year old Havanese. I kind of can’t believe he is already almost two!! While he is not cut out for long runs with me (his cute little legs just can’t) he loves to go on my short easy run days!! I typically take him with me on Monday’s. For my run streak this year we have made Monday’s our easy day and so we run one mail to maintain the streak and walk two miles to shake out our legs from the weekend’s long runs. 

Truth be told we haven’t done many long runs this summer, it is so hot and we have been a bit slack since we aren’t in the midst of training for anything. This is how we feel about summer lol:

I feel in love with Stunt Puppy products when we tested out the Stunt Puppy Stunt Runner, we also carry with us all the time the Stunt Puppy Nano Bowl, I actually keep this in my car at all times, but we had not yet tried out the harness. 

We have tried so many harnesses but they all fit LeRoy funny. Again he is little but has a longer torso with short legs. A lot of harnesses are bulk, heavy or are cut weird around his legs and they seem uncomfortable for him. If he could only talk… LOL!

As of late we have just used his collar which I also don’t love for runs because he get excited (like me) and starts off too fast, pulling and then making that heavy breath/choking sound that dogs do! Ugggg it’s the worst!

I was a bit worried about the sizing. I consider him a small dog but there are dogs much smaller. I ordered the size small and it actually fit perfectly. 

It is fully adjustable and so I was able to adjust to make it just right for him. 

He loves it!! I love it! It is now our go to harness for all activities where he is on the leash!

We both highly recommend you check out Stunt Puppy Go Dog Glo™ Harness and all of their awesome products!!
