Some exciting things came in the mail yesterday! One was my very first StrideBox ….
…and the other was my new Go Sport ID.
I’ll start with the July StrideBox. I love the packaging. It makes for a great presentation. The tissue paper makes it feel like you’re opening a little gift, which you pretty much are. Great timing since my birthday is next week!
Inside I found some nutrition bars, an energy gel, some kinesiology tape, and a StrideBox hydration bottle full of hydration options – perfect for the summer heat!
The box also came with two Stride Guides that tell you a bit about each of the products, what the retail price is, and where to find them on the internet.
Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside. I will link to each of the product’s websites listed on the Stride Guide to keep this from getting lengthy.
The products outside of the hydration bottle included a Bearded Brothers Fabulous Ginger Peach energy bar, an apple pie flavored PR Bar, a double espresso Body Glove Surge Gel, and some SpiderTech pre-cut kinesiology tape.
Inside the hydration bottle I found a sampler of six different hydration products. The top row has a tri-berry GU Brew electrolyte tablet, a berry flavored ZYM sport drink tablet, and a grape flavored Nuun electrolyte tablet. The bottom row consists of some HDX grape flavored hydration mix, some lemon lime Vega Sport hydrator mix, and a packet of tropical punch flavor Healthy To Go! acai energy mix.
I am excited to try out each of these products. The main reason I signed up for StrideBox is to try out some different hydration and fuel products. Each month, you receive a box with an assortment of running gear, accessories, and nutritional products. It costs $15/month and you can cancel at any time. And now on to my new Go Sport ID!
I first became aware of this product through Sweaty Emily and her post about gear. I had been on the hunt for some type of ID to wear while running and this was exactly what I was looking for!
I have the Inspire band which allowed me to put a motivational quote on one side and my ICE info on the other side. I liked that I could make my ID a “functional” accessory that I can wear on a daily basis.
I utilized my favorite inspirational quote from 2 Chronicles (also on the right sidebar of my blog). My favorite color is currently purple, but that has a tendency to change. So naturally I had to get the 8-pack of bands so that I could switch it out as my little heart desires.
That orange band will become very important this fall as I cheer on my Hokies at football games! How could I not be decked out from head to toe in maroon and orange, including my Go Sport ID? If only they specifically made it in burnt orange. Official Virginia Tech colors are Chicago maroon and burnt orange… but I’m sure you knew that 🙂
Disclosure: I was not compensated by StrideBox or Go Sport ID for this post. I purchased these products with my own/Barry’s money (what’s yours is mine, honey) at full price and these companies probably do not even know I have a blog. I just thought I’d share about my new stuff!
Do you subscribe to StrideBox or any “surprise” boxes?
Do you have an ID like the Go Sport ID that you use while out exercising?
Have you ever tried any of the products in this month’s StrideBox? Do you use any of them regularly?
