This box is sold by Runnerbox, Mike enjoys receiving this box. The box costs $19.95 + $6.95 s&h and arrives 6 days after my account is charged. They ship via USPS priority and do not send out tracking information. The box includes the signature Runnerbox tissue paper.
This month the items did not fit in the box and some were placed in the shipping envelope. I was really excited for Mike to see all his goodies. The first item in the envelope was a tire tube. He says this is the brand a local bike shop carries. He can only use this one on his front tire. Mike assures me he can use it when he changes his tires this weekend. Price is $5.99.
They also included the Allergease ($5.99) and SK Energy bottle ($2.50) in the envelope. The allergease lozenges will be used when the cold weather begins. Mike doesn’t have allergies, but he uses a decongestant during the winter to avoid a drippy nose on early morning rides. Energy options are always welcome, he says little bottles are easy to use while riding. He was happy to give this a try.
They included three items for energy and protein. The Quest Protein Chips ($2.39) are BBQ flavor and I know Mike will let me know how they tasted soon. This will have to be an after ride snack or before an afternoon ride. The high protein Orgain nutritional shake ($3.69) will be a good on the go protein shake. Mike has used the Gu shots ($1.25) before and he likes root beer. He likes to try new flavors and it will be a great item for the Tour de Gruene.
Mike has never tried these bars and quickly dropped them in his cycling snack bin. He hasn’t really liked the Nuun tabs he’s tried in the past. Yet, he didn’t seem to unhappy with these being in the box. The Powerful Yogurt bar retails for $2.89, the 18 Rabbits bar retails for $1.20, and the Nuun tablets are $0.75 each.
There was a Runnerbox lip balm ($2.99), which will definitely be used. The Momentum motivate wrap ($20) will be mine, not the best item to include for Mike. The other bracelet is from the Powerful Yogurt brand and it’s kind of cute.
I was happy to see Mike once again received items he hasn’t tried yet. I tend to pick up random samples for him to try and this is a great way for him to discover new items. The value was over $30 of items for him and the $20 wrap, well above the cost of the box and shipping. This has definitely been a great subscription for Mike. They also included several coupon codes. Definitely a great gift idea for any runner, cyclist, or triathlete.
