In the good ole days, it was a good idea to be a decent runner. As you had to be able to hunt your own prey and avoid Sabre-toothed Tigers. Or at the very least you probably had a long run to the nearest safe watering hole. An actual watering hole I mean, not a pub.
We have different stresses nowadays. The 9-5 grind, meetings, deadlines, and the dreaded commute to get there. So it is not always easy to fit exercise in, and I am not a fan of the treadmill. I like to do my running outside.
Enter IAMRUNBOX. Founded in 2014, with the aim of producing products to make exercise easier whilst commuting and travelling. Their garment carriers and backpacks are designed to carry work clothes, and keep them wrinkle free whilst you are running or cycling to and from work. The main problem I have here is that my work shirt will probably not be going into my backpack wrinkle free, as my ironing skills are pretty limited. IAMRUNBOX can’t be blamed for that though.
Run commuting definitely seems to be on the rise, and I think running in general is in a good place at the moment. I am looking to do a mixture of 10k’s, half and full marathons this year and participation seems high.
Yet it is easy to let work and life get in the way. So I believe run commuting could be a good option for people to at least try. Then if you like it, IAMRUNBOX can certainly help you out. I am really pleased to be an ambassador for them, and I am currently putting the Backpack Pro through its paces. I am also going to test it out in environments it probably wasn’t designed for, to see how it copes. For example I will take it hiking and camping.
I will do a full review of the Backpack Pro in a few weeks, to see how it has done.
