Once I figured out the problem, I quickly updated my information and I'm back on track and received my January Stridebox a couple weeks ago.
Disclaimer - I have no relationship with Stridebox. I signed up and pay for my subscription on my own.
What's In The Box?
I had to list this one first because it is my favorite item in the box. I had a ton of slap bracelets as a kid! This reminds me of my childhood and will keep me safe during my evening runs! Bonus! This one is good because it is big enough that I can wear it around my ankle or around my massive (ok not so massive) bicep. Either way, safety is fun kids!
Retail: $22.50/18 Bars
Omg! These were delicious! They were like a rice crispy treat dipped in chocolate and caramel. So good! And I guess it's cool that they have 8g of protein in them.
Retail: $33.36/24 Gels
I'm not a fan of energy gels. The consistency just doesn't work for me. But The Hubbo volunteered to try this out for me. He said the texture looks and feels just like honey. Hence the name, I guess. He also said the vanilla flavor was light. He'd use these again if they were around but he'd probably stick with GU. I know that I can also pick these up individually at my local running store.
Retail: $9.99/10 Wipes
I haven't use this product yet, but I plan to drop it in my gym bag and take it with me. I workout during my lunch break 3-4 times a week and there have times this would have been super handy to have.
Retail: $31.95/12 Bars
Eh, no a fan. The consistency reminds me of a typical diet bar snack thingy.
Retail: $23.99/12 Pouches
I haven't tried these yet, but the package labels these as a "3" which indicates you should eat them after your activity of choice.
Here's the description:
A gel filled chew with a 2:1 glucose o fructose blend for high energy. Have 1-3 pieces every 10 minutes during training or racing.
Every 10 minutes?! No one has time to be eating that much during a race! No Thanks!
Retail: $19.50/6 Packets
I haven't tried this yet, but here's the description:
A unique sports drink powered by SuperScratch to provide consistent energy, without spikes, crashes and gastric distress.
Retail: $22.50/15 Packets
Clearly, I failed at preparing for this review because I haven't tried this one either. Oh well, #redhairdontcare.
Also, I don't know how I feel about Pineapple Coconut water, but here's the description:
Dehydrated coconut water with natural electrolyte nutrients.
I like coconut water, I like pineapple so surely I'd like the combination, right? I'm still skeptical.
