For the holidays, my friend gifted me a subscription to Runnerbox. It was a pleasant surprise and I decided to revisit my thoughts about subscription boxes.
The first box I received had some yummy goodies-- I was excited and tried everything. I found a few awesome products I love. A few weren't my jam, but it was still fun to try something new.
|Merry Christmas to me! The purely elizabeth cereal was delish!|
A month later, I was was once again pleasantly surprised when I received a second box. Once again, I was excited to try some new goodies. Runnerbox definitely knows what runners like and includes some really good products.

|These are delicious!|
|A full size bottle of vitamins? Yes, please. (I haven't tried them yet)|
I still have one more box coming from my Christmas gift. I am looking forward to seeing what things I get. It has been fun to try new products. I have been pleasantly surprised by a few of the things. Clif beet flavored energy didn't appeal to me but it has become one of my new running favorites. I was also apprehensive about the Munk Pack oatmeal (I'm weird about textures) but I really enjoyed it.
But then comes my dilemma.
Once I find a product I like, I stick with it. I have the "if it's not broken, why fix it" mentality. That is one of the reasons I cancelled my subscription I previously had. I was sticking with the products I love and not trying new things. I might be missing out on some great items, but I also know I'm using what works for me. I do think subscription boxes are a great way to try new items and I'm definitely glad that I've tried them. When I was subscribing before, I was getting one every month. For me, that was a little too frequently. I've enjoyed getting a box every two months from Runnerbox and plan on continuing it after my gift "runs out."
Have you ever tried a subscription box? Did you like it?
Until next time, happy running!
