So after deferring my Chicago Marathon race entry, I lost some of my running motivation. I was still getting out there to do some speed work and got in most of my runs, but the long runs weren't quite so long and my focus was wandering. I needed something to help me put some pep in my runs.
So enter the Fun Run Box!
It's a subscription box that shows up at your door full of fun challenges, a t-shirt, and a bunch of goodies. I got the 5 Mile Dachs box!
It had a fun hat, a travel foam roller, a granola bar, a container of IPA jelly beans, and a t-shirt. Look at all these goodies!
So this is part running and part sharing fun pictures. You can actually win another Fun Run Box if your picture (you take a pic that is on the sheet of paper they also included) earns the most votes on the page for that race challenge.
I ran my 5 miles and then it was time to snap some pics!
Each of the photos that count towards the challenge also go into a team pool, I was on Team Diggity!
I can't tell you how much fun I had when I got the box and got to explore it. It was so much... well.. FUN! It was like a little runner birthday present in the middle of September.
Will I order another? Yeah! IT was just the thing that helped boost some motivation and to infuse some fun into my normal runs.
