Happy Birthday Stridebox!

It's been eons since I've shown off a Stridebox hasn't it? Yep. Slacker. February marks their one year anniversary! In celebration, they sent to their first subscribers an EXTRA BOX! Imagine that? Soooo I am going to first show you my anniversary gift and then the February box. Let's go!

They sent this super cute birthday card thanking me for being an early subscriber instead of an info card.

The first (and biggest) item was a water bottle that's so much more than a water bottle! It unscrews at the top AND bottom for easy cleaning (awesome right?). But the best part, it has a little handle/pocket type thing with room for your smartphone, a key, some gels, and your ID/money. I think it's amazing. Seriously.

Next up is a protein powder. I haven't actually tried it yet, but it's birthday cake flavor, so how could that not be awesome? Get it? Birthday cake flavor for their birthday! Cute, Stridebox, cute.

And the last item, you KNOW I love. Another slap wrap! It's reflective so perfect for road running.

Many thanks to Stridebox for the awesome anniversary gifts! It was so unexpected. What a great surprise!

So now, on to February's box! My box this month actually got lost, so Stridebox sent me a replacement. They said if the first one shows up to pass it on to a friend or enjoy it myself. It never did show up, but it's so nice of them to be so generous!

As always the info card is right on top when you open it:

First look, I love the heart paper for Valentine's day and the cute sticker:

First item is a chap stick. Such a great item for this time of year! Every time I run outside in the cold, I wind up with chapped lips. Every. Time.

Next is a Rise protein bar in almond and honey flavor. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks delicious!

I was super excited to see this Pocket Fuel in the box. I'm getting low on gels and coffee flavored ones are my FAVORITE!

This Cerasport item is an electrolyte drink mix. I'm excited to try it!

I CANNOT wait to try these Sharkies. They're gummies shaped like SHARKS! Yes!

Skratch has been included a few times in my Stridebox, and it's a great product! It's a very light flavor, not super sweet like some of the other mixes can be.

This foot gel sounds really interesting. I think it's both a moisturizer and a liniment for achy feet. Sounds like a must have to me! I look forward to trying it out!

You all know how much I love the "stuff" items in Stridebox. You know the thing that's not edible and use can use more than once. Well this month is no exception! Since it's still dark all the time, this little light is perfect for outdoor running this time of year. It's just a little clip on guy, but it's super bright! It can either stay on totally, or be set to flash. Great little trinket!

And last but not least, Stridebox always includes a sticker or two. I love the Valentine's day theme this month!

So there you have it! If you're interested in signing up for Stridebox, it's $15.00 a month including shipping. Just click here! I don't think they have a referral program but feel free to tell them I sent you :)
Happy Running!
