Oh hey, February (and almost March). We’ve had a couple REALLY nice weekends this winter. We normally do, and then the weather changes by 40 degrees the next day. It’s in the mid-70’s today, which I took full advantage of and went running this morning. Half marathon training starts in 2 weeks!
GU Energy Gel: GU is a brand that’s regularly sent by Stridebox, and we’re okay with this! I don’t love gels, but this Cucumber Mint flavor has me super intrigued. This flavor has caffeine.
Vegan, Gluten free
Detour Simple Protein Bar: I love when Stridebox sends protein bars! This one has 20g of protein and only 4g of sugar-so it checks off some personal requirements for a good protein bar. The chocolate caramel flavor sounds good, too.
Gluten free, Whey Protein
Bumbleroot Superfood Hydration Mix: This hydration mix is made with Baobab, monkfruit and dried coconut water to bring you electrolytes and antioxidants. I love getting hydration mixes and this one is lemongrass flavor.
Made with organic ingredients
Honey Stinger Gluten Free Waffle: Honey Stinger is another brand Stridebox sends out fairly often and it’s a brand that we love. We really like their waffles as a quick snack before or after a workout. I don’t worry about cutting gluten out of my diet, so that doesn’t matter so much to me. The cinnamon flavor is a win, though.
ThinkSport Shampoo & Body Wash: Nothing feels better than a refreshing shower after a good workout (and maybe food), so this is a great addition to the box. I don’t normally use 2-in-1 shower products like this, but I’ll still give it a go. They also donate 10% of orders to one of five charities!
Doc Spartan Combat Ready Ointment: At first I thought this was chapstick, but nope! It’s an ointment used to help heal scrapes, cuts, blisters and chaffing. The lid has a clip if you wanted to attach it to something, too. I’ll be the first to admit I don’t like using Neosporin because of how goopy it is, so this will be a great alternative.
LED Flashing Slap Bracelet: Stridebox has sent out a variety of light-up wearables, and while they’re certainly appreciated… I’m starting to have a collection of them. It has two different flashing states and a solid state.
I’m really happy with this month’s box! I can’t wait to chow down and try these products.
