Stridebox Review – First Box

The Stride Box Un-Opened!

The Stride Box Un-Opened!

For father’s day, my family thought a fantastic gift for their Runner Dad, would be a running gift!  (Runner Dads are like normal dads… but cooler.)   After much research, thought and debating (I can only assume that part), they settled on a StrideBox subscription.

So what is StrideBox?   Think of it as a grab-bagbox of running stuff.  Usually there is one “item” of some sort, then different snacks/drink powders/GU/etc.   As an example, I just happen to have pictures for my July box! (I may not have been blogging – but I was thinking about blogging!)

The box wasn’t very big when it arrived, so I was prepared to be underwhelmed.2014-07-12 08.25.59  Yet when it actually arrived, I was very pleasantly surprised!   The picture to the left is the very first box.   While a water bottle doesn’t seem like a nifty item – I didn’t’ realize how important it was going to be.  Inside were NUUN and(See the purple square at the bottom of the picture?) several other drink mixes, of the electrolyte and protein varieties!

They also (usually) include a sheet that describes everything you have received in the box.  This may seem silly, but some of the nifty items don’t have a brand-name, and you may need a second flashy arm band (spoiler alert there for a future review of last nights box!!!!)

So far its been neat, I have received 4 or 5 of these and I have to admit – I get super excited.


I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
