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!



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!!


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??

    Looks like a great box...And I am LOVING the color of your toes!!!

  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! :)

    I love Chia bars! I haven't tried compression gear, but I have heard good things about them! I'm anxious to hear your review on them!

  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.

  12. If you go to Stridebox.com you learn more about it. You subscribe to it and receive a box monthly and it's all running/fitness related items.

  13. Cwx compression is the bomb.com. I have 6 pairs..... 2shorts, 3 3/4/s and 1 long
