September Stridebox

So it seems I have somehow never posted about Stridebox.  I have NO idea how that has slipped through!

When the box arrives, its like a pleasant schrodinger's cat! No risk of dead things, just an unknown amount of cool stuff!

For Father’s Day last year (that’s right, I’ve been getting these for over a year and never posted), I received a subscription to Stridebox.  What is stride box?  According to their marketing blurb on their website:

StrideBox is a fun and exciting way to discover running products and accessories. Each month, as a member, you will receive a curated box of apparel, accessories, and nutrition products to fuel your training sessions, workouts, and races.

According to me – its like a runner’s grab bag!  It will contain one gadgetry thingy (lights for my shoes, stretching band, no-tie shoe laces, water bottle, etc), some sort of race-refueling stuff (gels, powders, bars, etc) and who knows what else?

The funny part, is that my whole family looks forward to seeing what is in it each month!   We aren’t the greatest at emptying our mailbox (it’s a long way down the parking lot) regularly – so I get it at some point in the first half of the month.

When you open the box, everything looks gift wrapped!


Like a present!

Normally after lifting the paper its like a big reveal.. but this time –


Packaging was blocking the view… ADDED MYSTERY!!!!!!!   Although I did notice (as you can see in the picture) there was a powder all over everything.. It seems something leaked!  Lets look at what was in the box, and see if we cand find the leaker-


Not a bad-looking selection, and an item I had wanted to try, as well as one that I know my wife will appreciate!

Just in case you aren't sure of what something is - they do include a card that describes it!

The item I am sure my wife will love: Sneaker Balls!


“Let’s face it, sometimes your favorite shoes don’t have your favorite smell. Sneaker Balls are made to help absorb and refresh even the stinkiest smelling shoes. You can use them in any small place where odors try to hide.

The one I have wanted to try – as it seems that eventually all sports clothes retain that.. umm.. “gym smell”

Sweat X – Sports Detergent –


High performance sports detergent that is designed to lift stains, remove bacteria and eliminate odor from your favorite running gear.

Other items included:

MET-RX Energy Gummy – Dark Cherry


Clif Organic Energy Food – Banana Beet Ginger (I’m not sure about this one!) and the GOMacro Bar – Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip


Calsura – Calcium Supplement & Everlast Fuel (which sadly, I don’t get to try as mine was leaking..)

The yellow powder that was all over everything  came from the Everlast Fuel!

There was also a Ryte Fuel – Vanilla Creme protein powder that somehow I forgot to get a picture of.

As I try these things out, I will let you know what I think of the products!


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.
