UnBoxing! The Runner Crate – October

We are almost completely caught up on our unboxings! Yay!  Now, if I could only get through all the products to tell you guys about those. LOL! I’m working though them and will have another empties review for you soon!dsc_0233

Now up we have the October Runner Crate! The total value of this month’s box is just over $57, a definite value improvement from our September box! As always click the picture to see if the product is available on Amazon.com

Without further ado – check out the goodies we got this month!

In the box:

Runner Crate “Coffee, Poop, Run” Emoji Coffee Mug – MSRP $14; www.runnercrate.com
This is our emoji coffee mug that is limited edition.

This one made me giggle as soon as I saw it in the box.  It’s so relatable – except I’m not a “coffee before running” runner.  I know plenty of them though!

RXBars – MSRP $4 for 2 bars; www.rxbar.com
You love us for what’s inside.  So we decided to be upfront about it. First things first, our exclusive, powerful cor ingredients: egg whites, fruits and nuts.  our 100% natural flavors and our one-of-a-kinf promise: No B.S. loud and clear.

The trend of giving us two flavors of the same product in our boxes continues! This time we got Blueberry and Peanut Butter.  You may recall that an RXBar was included in the first RunnerBox I received.  It was a Salted Caramel – hopefully I’ll like the less fancy flavors better.

Saltstick Fastchews – MSRP $3; www.saltstick.com
Fastchews feature a scientifically-derived, proprietary high-performance formulation thst provides a balanced supply of biovailable sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Sodium is derived from sodium citrate, a proven source that has the added benefit of soothing the stomach. The formulation mirrors the electrolyte profile lost in sweat, in  a form and quantity the body can absorb. It’s non-GMO ingredients are all natural, gluten-free, vegetarian, and without artificial sweeteners or colors.

I’ve actually been pretty curious about SaltStick products but have never tried them before. These aren’t something that I would consider a cooler/colder weather product though so I’m not sure how useful these will be in my fall/ winter training.

Foods Alive Lemon Chia Crunch – MSRP $7; www.foodsalive.com
Lemon Crunch Power Crackers are a mix of nutrient rich almonds and wlanuts, flax and sunflower seeds and reishi mushrooms blended with maca, lucuma, coconut, vanilla and lemon. With superior taste, texture, and clean plant based organic ingredients, everyone will love our new vegan power crackers.  Since these power crackers contain fiber and protein, they are the perfect snack to give your body the power it’s looking for.

You had me until mushrooms…

Cabela’s 22″x 22″ Cotton Bandana – MSRP $9; www.cabelas.com
Use it as a headband, hatband, headcover, bndage, sling, hot pad, washcloth, or towel. Constructed of 100% cotton with rolled-hem stitching to prevent fraying. High-quality dyes ensure it will keep its colors through years of use. Made in the USA.

This product actually confuses me… first it’s a cotton bandana… and it’s deer themed… and I’m not impressed by either of those things.  I do have a friend who runs with a bandana tied to her water bottle as a sweat “towel” or to blow her nose. So perhaps that’s where they were going with this?

F*** This! I’m going running! Sticker – MSRP $7.50 for 2 stickers; http://www.runnercrate.com
Use it as a headband, hatband, headcover, got something stuck on your mind? Can’t get out of a funk? Here’s what we all do when we need a reminder.  Use this sticker.

Yup… what else is there to say? I’ve definitely been there…

Bio Coffee – Alkalizing Coffee with Wheatgrass – MSRP $30 for a 15 pack; www.foodsalive.com
Get back at the jitters, addicition and amounts of caffiene that are illegal in 32 states.  Food for Life Supreme Bio-Coffee is exactly what it sounds like; food to promote life, which is bio-engineered like no other coffee in the world. Made specifically to alkalize your body and jumpstart your digestive system. It is literally the healthiest coffee in the world.

I’m hoping this one is better than our buttered coffee from a couple months back.

Organic Hemp & Chia Herbal Lip Balm – MSRP $3; www.foodsalive.com
Made with Foods Alive’s Artisan Cold-Pressed Chia Oil and Hemp Oil to nourish and protect your lips~ Help your lips feel revived and alive with Foods Alive’s nourishing Hemp & Chia Lip Balm. the aromatic herbal mint will awaken your senses while the cold-pressed chia seed oil and hemp seed oil will hydrate and protect your lips from the elements. 

There are a lot of Foods Alive products in this month’s box. I’m always in need of more lip balm though. I’m forever losing mine. 🙂

Apollo Energy Gum  – MSRP $8; www.apolloenergygum.com
Apollo Energy Gum is the fastest, most portable energy source on the planet! It is the only energy gum in the world with a liquid center and xylitol shell that is good for your body, immune system, cognitive functions and teeth! And it tastes great too! Our ingredients and formula are the result of 8 years of development and has been specifically designed to provide a healthier, more portable energy source for everyone, anytime, anywhere. 
dsc_0199I’ve seen a few people using this type of gum recently and have been pretty intrigued by it. I’m a fan of energy on the go so I’ll definitely let you know what I think!

And that wraps up our October Runner Crate! I hope you enjoyed the unboxing and Happy Running!
