Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hopefully this day brings your joy and happiness. As Charles Shulz once said, “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt!” Well, how about a story about a box instead. ”A box?” you say. Yes, a box. Read on my friends, you won’t be disappointed.
Sitting on my door step one day not too long ago was a box. A box, with an impressively logo’d sticker, resting on my stoop. Was it here for me, or was it simply resting on its journey else where? It was a simple box, a plain box…one might even say a boring box. One might even pass over said box, in a sea of other boxes. I am not “one” however. I saw that this was a special box…well constructed, new, “shiny”…just waiting patiently yet eagerly to be opened…with a label that said “You’re a runner…I’m a RunnerBox…open me!” And so, not wanting to be rude to said box, I brought this box inside to help it fulfill its destiny.
Slowly I lifted the lid of the box, not sure what I would find. To my surprise, I was immediately greeted with an insightful quote: “The task ahead of you is never greater than the strength within you.” This made me ask the question…did I have the strength within to carry forward on my journey to expose this box to the world? I looked deep within, and determined I did. And so, I removed the postcard of wisdom, peeled back the veil of secrecy, and what I found inside was beyond my wildest dreams…
OK, perhaps not my wildest dreams (those usually involve flying and levitation), but definitely filled with treasures worthy of a runner. As you can see above, said box fulfilled its destiny by providing me the spoils of a running treasure box. Energy mixes, chews, gum, protein bars, gel, and sports beans…not to mention some useful gear like a blinking reflector and headphone cord wrap for tunes on the go.
So where did this magical box come from? The folks over at TheRunnerBox.com were kind enough to send me a box to review. From their website:
RunnerBox is a subscription based box for runners, triathletes and other active people. It is a mini shoebox filled with running products, mailed to your front door. It has everything from energy products, gels, chews, protein shakes/supplements, nutrition bars, skincare, and other accessories! Some products will be brand new (but personally tested) on the market, and some will be tried and true favorites. With so many products coming out on the market, leave the trials and testing to us, we’ll search out the best and send them to you!
They’ve got different subscription options, including bi-monthly, six month, and a one time box purchase. You can even send one as a gift…hint hint. The product is pretty awesome, and I think it’s worth checking out. My only qualm with RunnerBox is their pricing structure. It would be nice to see discounted pricing for a longer subscription commitment…some kind of tiered structure. All in all however I’d definitely recommend checking them out.
