Stridebox – April ’15 Review

April 15, 2015

I love it when my Stridebox arrives, especially now that it’s warm out. I made my triathlon training schedule, so I know I’ll be taking full advantage of the goodies in the boxes!

Ultima Replenisher: This is orange flavored electrolyte powder a plant-based product. I like orange flavored drinks, so win for me.
Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan
Value: $1.00

Arctic Ease Instant Cold Wrap: What a neat thing to include! I think Tim will get more use of out this than I will, but it’s reusable so we both get to try it out.
Value: $6-7

Zing Nutrition Bar: I love getting bars in my Stridebox! And, uh, double nut brownie flavor? Count me in. I know it’s a nutrition bar and not a protein bar, but for only having 10 g of protein the amount of calories (200) and grams of sugar (10) are a bit high for what I prefer.
Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan
Value: $2.67

Spenco Gel Heel Cushions: I think this is another really neat item to include, even though I don’t use cushions in my shoes. I could see maybe trying them out when I’m on a rocky trail or a long run, though. Tim may get some use out of these, too.
Value: $7

Movit Energy Gummies: Gummies are my go-to item for energy on long run/cycle days, so I love getting them. I also love how Stridebox included two flavors! That means I get to try both or Tim and I each get one. Oh, and they also contain caffeine.
Value: $2.84 ($1.42 each)

Squeaky Cheeks Body & Foot Powder: Thankfully I haven’t had problems with chafing, but I know Tim has so this will be good for him to try out.
Value: $1.00

Vega Endurance Gel: This is another plant-based brand and product. Tim likes gels, but I don’t so this is a miss for me. Another thing about this brand, is that I really don’t care for the taste of their protein powders. So that makes me hesitant to even try this product even though I love orange flavored things.
Dairy, Gluten and Soy Free
Value: $2.00

Stridebox literally stuffed the box full this month! I also love the addition of the “Run Local” sticker! Big River Running Company is a local running shop here in town that I really try and support.  Though I may not use a couple items, I still think this is a great box with a total of 8 items and a $22 value. Thumbs up.
