How awesome is it to get new running gear in the mail? It is great to get something that you know will help or enhance your training and running. Whether it’s equipment, food or clothing, it is always exciting to get something new to try and use. Well I found a way to have that feeling happen at least every other month. The RunnerBox has taken the best part of getting new running gear and packaged it in a neat box that shows up at your door every other month.
The RunnerBox partners with a bunch of companies that focus on improving your training and running and boxes up their samples. Bi-monthly they send out a box filled with samples of food, drinks, training equipment and accessories to their subscribers. I received mine at the beginning of January and immediately put that little box to work. I got everything from protein bars and powders, to a natural energy drink, to hand warmers. Lucky for me, winter in Minnesota is cold, so that night when I went for a run I could use the hand warmers. Then when I got home, I was able to try the new tea that I got to warm up. I also got some protein bars which were delicious and I was able to bring them with on my travel day when I had to go down to New Orleans for work. I also received some interesting items, like a chickpea mac & cheese pasta and shots an all natural energy drink. I won’t say that I loved everything I received, but that’s the beauty of this subscription.
The coolest part about The RunnersBox is that they are sending you samples. Meaning, I can try them out before having to spend money on committing to the product or the brand. With so many products out there that can help your running, it becomes very hard trying to decide which ones are best for you. This is a simple way to try a bunch of stuff. For under $25, I am trying 5 – 10 new products when otherwise I would spend over $100 on everything in that box.
Other than being able to try a variety of different products for runners, The RunnerBox has options for cyclists and tri-athletes with The CycleBox and The TriBox. Most runners aren’t just runners so this is an opportunity for them to try some other gear too. These boxes are great for yourself and for gifts. Kind of a simple no brainier.
Watch out all my runner friends, I think you all know what is coming for your birthdays!
