August Stride Box Review

Posted by CheapRunnerRhoda

Good mooorning!

So about a week and a half ago, I received the August Stride Box! As usual I opened it immediately!

There were lots if goodies!

A couple snack bars and I looove snacks!


HealthWarrior

KindBar

Some energy and endurance supplies which we all could use from time to time.


GEndurance-chews and thirst quenchers.

A couple different gel thingys.


2ndSurge-Double Expresso

IslandBoost-Passion Fruit Flavor

Lastly there was also a Post Run Cooling Towel. To use this you soak it, squeeze it out and them place it around neck or wherever. It is actually surprisingly very refreshing!!


StrideCool.com

All in all I am once again very happy with Stride Box this month. I will use everything.

Another item I have started to try out-not ready to reveal my verdict on them yet....


CWX compression pants!!

Anyone ever use a cooling towel before?

This was a first for me and I liked it.

Compression gear anyone??

  2. I've never used a cooling towel but I used to freeze washcloths when I lived in Guam for after a long,hot run. I like your pants! I just ordered a pair of 110% compression pants. Can't wait to get them. I love my compression socks so I figure these will be great as well! (I really got them for the long ride home after MCM)

    Stridebox is one box I haven't ordered before. Maybe I should check it out! I've never used a cooling towel before, but that sounds really neat! Those pants are adorable, and so are your toes! :)

  10. What is a strife box? I have been thinking about getting a cooling rag for after my long Saturday runs in Georgia. They have been killin me! And Compress? I compress everyday. Addicted.

  11. I tried that Chia Bar yesterday. I really liked the flavour. The texture takes a bit of getting used to.
