I actually got the box at midnight. Hubby and I had been out on a "date" so that my grown daughter could have some of her friends over without Mom and Dad around. Her friends were still here - and I couldn't wait to open my box - which is why you get my outdated comforter as a backdrop :)
I was pretty excited when I saw the Foot Rubz - 'cause let's face it - middle aged runners need all the massage tools they can get!
|sorry, I covered up the Pocket Fuel with the Get Out and Run Sticker. I do like that StrideBox includes an inspirational sticker in every order.|
But then I saw the Lock Laces and I actually did a little happy dance. I have a pair of Lock Laces that I really like, and have been wanting to get another set for a different pair of shoes. But they are 8 bucks!! So, to have them included in my $15 box made me feel - well - HAPPY!
Side Story: I have a hate/love relationship with Lock Laces.

Here is a listing of all in the box:
- I think the PowerICE freezer bars are an excellent idea in the summer. I sure wish I had had these after my long run - in 90 degree heat - on Saturday!
- I have never actually used or needed anti-chafe cream. But I LOVE that the Blue Steel Anti-Chafe cream comes in single use packs! This makes it easy to take with me on long runs or races (where a sudden need for anti-chafe cream would be just my luck!) And they included 3 of them! Nice!
So, by rough estimate $28 worth of product in my $15 box - and several products I am very excited about - STRIDEBOX SCORE!
