StrideBox Review: February 2014

Hey hey!

Well, I finally got to meet my nephew! I’m now an Auntie X 6! It feels a little more surreal though having a nephew from my side. I can’t believe my brother is now a DAD! Completely amazing and beautiful.


He is absolutely perfect in every way!



I think I could stare at him all day long, but I guess I’m a little biased 🙂





I can’t wait to watch him grow, and see what kind of little boy adventures he gets into. Hard to believe he’s officially a part of our family, and no doubt will be a huge blessing to all of our lives from here on out!

Anyways! Enough baby talk! Don’t worry, there will be plenty more 🙂

Stridebox Review: February 2014

I’m a little behind on my StrideBox reviews, so thought I’d catch you up on last month’s fantastic collection! It might be my favorite yet! I’m anxiously awaiting springtime and warmer temperatures so I can run outside more and test out all of these goodies! I know I can still test them out at the gym, but I’d rather be able to use them on some nice outdoor long runs!

Check out some of the goods…



Super excited to try this Pineapple electrolyte drink mix from Skratch Labs!


This revitalizing lip therapy lip balm is in fact, the bomb.com.



Foot Synergy Gel? Yes please!


Inside every StrideBox is a DETAILED list of what each product is, as well as a pricing guide. Two thumbs up, StrideBox!


Truckee then got in on the action with this clip on flashing L.E.D. light! Of course, it’s intended for humans, but putting it on her collar just seemed genius! This would be PERFECT to keep on her when we let her out at night, or if I’m walking her at dusk! I don’t typically run at night, so I’m thinking the pups will get more use out of this than me.



She loved it.

I guarantee if you sign up for StrideBox, you won’t be disappointed! (I’m not affiliated, I just love it that much!)

The photographer’s from the Little Rock Half Marathon finally posted the pictures from the race. And as usual, I look like a hot mess.

My legs are finally loosening up – and I might even do a little jog in the morning to get the day started. Unless of course my pillow has other plans, in which case, I will gladly sleep in. After Tuesday’s nightmare experience, I treated myself to a day full of treats, and totally deserved it! Buuuut, I know I should probably do something active tomorrow to even things back out again! Plus, I need to stay loose for next Saturday’s 10K! Woohoo!

    Oh my gosh your nephew is a little angel!! Seriously though–so adorable. I love monthly subscription boxes–I currently get Birchbox but am tempted to sign up for so many others!

    Lol! Love that you’re checking your Garmin as soon as you cross the finish line! Love that teal zip up shirt as well.

    I was overall pretty happy with the photos they took. I made a huge conscious effort to smile when I saw them standing on their platforms, and it turned out a-okay!

    Girl, you don’t look a hot mess! You look like you are determined.

    I love the idea of putting a LED light on the dog. I’m going to pass that tip on to my sister who has a giant backyard and is always losing her dog at night.

    I’m really wanting to get in on one of these boxes but there are so many to chose from! How did you chose the StrideBox over others?
