There are so many things out there in our world today that make things easier on people. Online shopping, drive thru coffee shops, getting your groceries delivered, etc. One of the things I've been especially interested in is getting organic produce delivered to my house once a month. I've heard of friends who have this service where they get a box delivered every month with an assortment of organic vegetables and some fruits. They don't know what they are getting so they are sure to try out a variety of things they might not otherwise have bought from the store.
But what about Running Specific Deliveries??!
When I was contacted by a company called StrideBox about doing a review of their service, I was excited to hear what they had to offer. Instead of getting organic produce delivered to your door every month, how fun and useful would it be to get a box full of RUNNING related (and other endurance-related sports) goodies to try out?!
Here's some quick facts about StrideBox that they sent on a Quick Fact Sheet in my February Box:
Who's It For?
StrideBox is specifically curated for runners, but could be used for other endurance athletes and active people as well.
What's In It?
The contents are different each month. Subscribers can expect nutrition products, running accessories and other cool stuff.
How Much Is It?
StrideBox is $15/month (includes shipping)
It was fun getting my February StrideBox in the mail. I know it might seem silly to some but even the way it was wrapped up so nicely in tissue paper made it feel special. It was like getting a present! Again, each month your StrideBox will be filled with different products to try out. Every month has a card telling you what is included and offering you discount codes some of those products if you decided you liked them enough to buy more.
Here's what StrideBox had to say about February's box on their StrideBox Blog:
We stuffed this box full of cool running nutrition and accessories… here’s what was in the February 2013 StrideBox:
One of my favorite things to try out in this box is certainly my new favorite gel: Honey Stinger Organic Energy Gel and the Lock Laces for my shoes! I'm sure I'll try out all the other products very shortly too...they are things that I will use...or at least try. Some of the contents are new brands that I've never heard of and some are my favorite things. I can add them all to my Running Fuel "STASH".
StrideBox would like to give one of YOU an opportunity to try out their March Box. I'm changing things up a bit here with how I do this giveaway thing since I want to give you an opportunity to comment on here AND on Facebook...whatever works for you. I know some of you don't like to use Facebook but some of you don't like to or can't leave comments on the blog post for some reason. So, follow me here...Trust me..I'm all about making these things EASY. Good grief, how many hoops does one want to jump through just to enter a giveaway, right? :) All this requires is thinking of a number from 1 to 1000 before your comment or comments (depending on how many you leave..only one required).
So...for every comment (here or on the link to this giveaway on Runninghood's facebook page) just preface it with a number from 1 to 1000. I'm going to use a random generator to choose a number and the person closest in number to my number I choose will WIN! If you choose the same number as another person then I'll draw from a hat old school style. Sounds good to me.
- Follow StrideBox on Facebook or Twitter. Then let me know you did (on here or on Runninghood's facebook link to this giveaway)! Just give me that number between 1 and 1000 first. Example: "356. I followed StrideBox on Facebook."
- Tell me (on here or Runninghood's FB wall) WHY you think you'd love STRIDEBOX! Again, remember to preface it with another number. Example: "432. I'd love StrideBox because I'm new to running and racing and this gives me a chance to be introduced to some great running-related products!"
- Share this review and giveaway about StrideBox on Facebook or Twitter and let me know you did in a comment (either here or on Runninghood's FB link to this post). Again, remember to preface your comment with a number from 1 to 1000 (different from before). Example: "999. I shared on Facebook."
Easy Peezy. Good Luck to you! I'm looking forward to hearing what you guys think about this service. I haven't seen anything like it.
Giveaway ends on February 18th.
