Tis the season to buy some of your favorite running gear for your running friends and family–for ideas check out our previous blog. As an alternative, if you need a last minute gift idea that will ship right to your recipient’s door, check out this fun option: Stride Box. I came home from work one afternoon to find this fun little surprise in my mailbox!
Inside is a fun assortment of goodies geared for runners: hydration tablets, energy gel, homeopathic pain relief gels, snacks, metal straws, and even a recipe and workout card. It was a fun way to try out some products I had never heard of. I enjoyed the Protes protein popcorn immediately upon opening. The hydration/energy tablets were a new find, called Pep Pod, similar to Nuun which is my favorite hydration supplement. I have particularly enjoyed the stainless steel straws, which come with a cleaning brush. Somehow drinking from a straw makes it easier to reach my daily goal of at least 100oz of water. Each box also contains a card with product descriptions and where to find them online. This box was a great gift, and I may end up subscribing to receive more boxes (at $15 a month, it’s not a bad deal).
