For almost a year, I’ve been subscribed to a different monthly “box” type services. First I subscribed to Naturebox, then I tested out Bulu, and somewhere in between I won a giveaway for a monthly installment of Bestowed. Each box had a few items that I enjoyed, but I didn’t always think every item in these were something I would buy or try again. My personal favorite has been my current subscription, which belongs to Runnerbox.
I’ll tell you why I am such a big fan. There are over a dozen different items in each box that are geared directly to me as a runner. I’ve received everything, from sports chews, fuel, goos, anti-chaffing cream, sunscreen, energy bars and snacks for on the go. It’s been one of the best ways for me to taste-test and sample products that I am not familiar with or haven’t had the opportunity to try yet.
I was an instant fan when one of my boxes came with a pumpkin flavored Clif Bar. (Delicious, BTW)
Tuesday, when I opened up the mailbox, I immediately smiled and felt a wave of anticipation when I noticed the box with the familiar packaging. I didn’t get the chance to open it until later that evening, but it was well worth the wait when I discovered all the goodies inside.
Can you believe how many amazing items came with this installment?
I was definitely amazed. This has been one of the best installments yet. And all of these items are extremely practical for me right now since I’m in the middle of half marathon training. The ChapStick is going in my gym bag immediately, and I can’t wait to test out the difference snacks, vitamins and fuels.
