Here's the Box Breakdown

Our first glimpse inside the Fun Run Box and we have this super cool "tissue" paper 
I am impressed that this box seems very gender neutral, I like that a guy could receive this and not feel like it's feminine but at the same time it isn't masculine either

Another first look at the Fun Run Box's goodies!

Here is everything that we received in the beginner Fun Run Box
Just to kind of sum up how Fun Run Works, the box is customized to your level of ability and then there are little challenges that you do to move to the next "level". Once you've completed all the challenges you'll receive a finishers shirt and a medal!


So what is all this stuff?


Inserts & Monthly Challenge
This card outlines how to make running a part of your routine which could very well be the hardest part of the whole deal  (in my opinion)

On the left is our card that explains our challenge. 1 point for each of the 28 days we complete the workout (on the right) They are simple (ex: jog 1 min walk 2 min x7) and are broken into weeks. Each week there is a day for rest but gradually the times increase until finally, you are jogging for 8 minutes and walking 2 minutes 4 times. Also comes with a cool Fun Run Box pen!



Tech Training Shirt
This lightweight tee has the Fun Run Box logo on it and definitely is made from a breathable material

You guys know me, I  was so pumped this was gray and orange

The back of the shirt

This is a really nice shirt, made with wicking material that is designed to pull moisture away from skin.


Gatorade Thirst Quench Powder
Awesome inclusion in a running box. A classic sports drink to keep our electrolytes up!


Larabar
While these are really popular I had never tried one before. This Larabar was in the "Peanut Butter Cookie" flavor

It looks a lot like a typical protein bar and tastes really good. The peanut butter was pretty good. It was really filling as well, which is to be expected with this type of bar



Fun Run Box Magnet
So you can make sure your challenge is somewhere in plain sight. Remember out of sight, out of mind.



Banana Boat Sport
Awesome for anyone who actually wants their sunscreen to stay in place this Banana Boat Sport Sunscreen comes with Powerstay Technology. What's best is - this won't get in your eyes!


Body Glide
This body lubricant stops blisters and chafing caused by rubbing. Free of dyes and perfumes this scent is safe for people with sensitive skin

It's kind of a bit like a stick of deodorant, you push up on the bottom and the little stick comes out. It has a texture that is quite slick and I can totally see how it would prevent you from chafing. 


Biofreeze Gel
This soothing menthol cold therapy pain relief is great for arthritis, back pain, sore muscles and joints

I haven't had a chance to use this yet because I want to wait until I actually have a pain that warrants it... if it works I may be a customer for life!


Chapstick
What run in the winter would be complete without a tube of Chapstick? We received the Original flavor. We can always use more Chapstick!


Emerald Almonds
The best almonds! Cocoa Roasted Almonds. I just said the other day after I tried some lime almonds that I didn't think I'd ever tried a flavored almond, guys I'm such a liar

This 100 calorie pack is a perfect way to get a little healthy energy boost!

And these are DELICIOUS!

So in summary


We look for three things in  a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The presentation of the Fun Run Box is awesome, we surely will not forget their name.. and it all ties this great box together. The quality of everything is wonderful. We are really fond of the shirt and finding out about a few new products we hadn't heard of before! And curation, this is an excellent way to get into the habit! A box like this is a perfect gift for someone trying or keeping up with a running regimen. We love the challenge and how each box brings you closer to completing the "series".
It's really well planned and thought out and the subscribers will reap the benefits of that. This box is perfect for anyone who may need a little extra training motivation, monthly!

As far as box economy, the Fun Run Box is $35 and while we can't really figure out the price of most of these items we do feel like a lot of what we pay for is the challenge and the reward of implementing a training routine into your life.
