Stridebox – July ’15

July 18, 2015

Summer finally arrived in St. Louis. It’s been above 90 all but one day this past week, and the humidity has made it 100x worse. I actually skipped running speed camp this past week because it was still 95 degrees at 7PM. And even though I’ve been doing minimal/recovery workouts this week, I’ll take all the extra hydration and energy I can get with the heat. Thank you July Stridebox for arriving just in time.

Water bottle: The description on the Stride Guide is kind of hilarious… “Advanced Desktop Hydration Delivery Vessel.” One can never have too many water bottles.
17 oz.
Value: $6.00

Rock Tape: Kinesiology tape made to reduce stress, inflammation and swelling. Comes with an application guide.
Value: $2.00

Dermasport: After-activity skincare products for athletes. I kind of love this. It comes with a facial cleanser, moisturizer and eye cream samples.
Not quite sure on value of samples, but the full 4-step set retails for almost $80.

Youth Infusion Drink Mix: Formulated with vitamins and minerals for a natural source of energy. I love drink mixes that give me energy!
Value: $1.45

Mediterra Sesame Energy Bar: I think this is the item I’m most excited about. Bars like this are great to keep in my desk drawer or to throw in my purse. Of the six flavors, I received the pistachio & honey flavor.
All Natural, Gluten free
Value: $2.00

Huma Chia Energy Gel: I keep trying to like gels, but so far I’ve only been able to stomach one or two kinds. I’ll give this one a go, too. I like lemon flavor, so that’s a plus!
All natural, gluten free, vegan
Value: $2.25

Salba Chia Seed Boosts: With more nutrients than regular chia seeds, add to smoothies, yogurt, juice or a salad. I like chia seeds in moderation, so these will get used.
Raw, vegan, gluten free
Value: $1.00

Purps: A multi-vitamin supplement drink mix co-founded by pro surfer Kelly Slater. I’m going to be honest in that I didn’t love the flavor of this mix. Tasted like sugary purple candy, which is about my least favorite flavor.
Gluten free, dairy free, soy free
Value: $2.00

GU Hydration Drink Tab: I love using tabs (vs powders) in my water bottle during longer bike rides. However, I don’t love watermelon flavored things so I’m going to be passing this to Tim. These suckers are pricey for tabs, too.
Value: $4.00

I really liked the variety of things in this months box! Between Tim and myself, we’ll definitely use everything.
