Hi Everyone! I am more than halfway done with my 10k training, and I have my first 10k race coming up on August 13th! I am very thankful that StrideBox gifted me with this subscription for my review. It always helps keep me motivated, and lets me check out fun new products. StrideBox is a monthly subscription box that costs $15 dollars per month.  It is filled with fuel to keep you going and fun gear.
