Tonight I had something extra to look forward to at the end of my run home from work. Last month after learning about StrideBox on #runchat I decided to join in order to test it out.

For those of you not familiar with StrideBox, for $15 per month or $20 for those of us in Canada, you receive a box of samples. I think this is a great idea and was looking forward to receiving my first box ever since I saw their tweet saying that boxes for May had been mailed.

So what did I get in my first StrideBox? There is a recovery bar, a gel, a packet of protein powder, Sport Beans, Honey Stinger Energy Chews, an energy bar called Bonk Breaker, some blister bands, a water bottle cleaner tablet and a Klitch footwear clip .

Without even having tried any of the products I am pleased with what I received. The nutrition products, most of which I have never tried before, alone will save me a couple of tips to the store and the shoe clip that will allow me to clip my shoes to my backpack is a great idea.

To top it all off, I was sent a bonus box in error so I get to enjoy all of the products twice!

    1. I have 20 km scheduled for this Sunday. In the past I think I’ve done anywhere from 16-20 km the last Sunday before the marathon.

      Hope your training is going well!

      1. Thanks for sharing Pat. I had written down on my plan to run 16 – but maybe will do closer to 20.

        Training has been pretty good. I’m very excited and feel ready.
