I did treat myself to something cool I found out about this week. There is a service called Runnerbox that is similar to those beer a month or coffee a month type clubs. For $20 every other month you get a box full of running related goodies and samplers. The also have a $10 monthly version. I ordered my box on Wednesday and didn't know what their shipping cycle was for the next bimonthly order... well I was quite surprised to get an email a half hour later asking for my shoe size so they could send me socks. The box itself arrived today(Friday)!
So what did I get?
That bright flash in the photo would be the reflective shoelaces they included. They do their job well it seems.
The shoe size was so they could give me Iniji socks. I have a pair already and they are good socks for Vibrams or any other shoe
There is something called Skin Strong Slik which is a spray on skin lubricant for sports and 2 samples of Slather which is used to prevent foot blisters

I'm really excited to get all these things to try out. I've never been much for the energy products, but I should probably start experimenting and finding what is right for me for the Chicago Marathon. I'm really interested in the Huma Chia Gel. It is made from fruit puree and chia seeds. The reviews I've read have said it is great tasting and easy on the stomach. I'm already a fan of chia seeds as a supplement so I will have to give it a shot. I look forward to what the next box brings in 2 months.
