Road ID

If you are anything like me, you worry all the time.  When I run, I used to stuff my SPIbelt with my phone, keys and my Vera Bradley wristlet, because I did not want to be without my ID in case of an accident.  Anything can happen when we are out running—vehicle accidents and falls just to name a few.  If I did not carry all that stuff in my SPI, how would emergency help know who I was if I was hurt and could not speak for myself.  These things scared me a lot, until I got my Road ID. 
According to their website, Road ID is a durable, rugged, athletic, fashionable line of identification gear. Road ID was created on the concept that active people should wear ID as part of their gear when participating in outdoor activities. It was started by a couple of guys who began to wonder "why in the heck don't we have ID on us when we go out for a run or a ride.  If we had an unexpected accident, while running or cycling, we would be in bad shape - nobody would know who we were or who to contact. That freaked us out."
It freaks me out too.  I have a lot of responsibilities at home, with an 8 year old son and 2 year old special needs daughter.  If something were to happen to me, I want my husband and my mom to know right away.  Knowing who I am makes it possible for my family to make the best possible medical decisions and get me better, quicker.  Getting a Road ID was a no brainer for me.  When I did my 10 miler on the Rail Trail a few weeks ago, I wore my Road ID.  Not only did I feel safer knowing that if I was hurt, emergency personal would know who I am, I know my family would know where I was too. 
The Road ID bracelet I chose is the Road ID Wrist ID Sport…in pink, of course!  I put my basic information on it—my name, my address and birthday, along with my husband and mom’s cell phone numbers.  The Road ID bracelet was comfortable to wear during my long run.  What made the run even more comfortable is that my SPI was not so packed!  I left my Vera wristlet in the car because I had my Road ID on. 
Road ID wants all of my reader to be safe when they run.  If you like what you see and want to order one of your own, use coupon code:  ThanksAmy8727236.  This code will get you $1 off any Road ID order.  Don’t wait, its only good until 9/20/2011 or until it is used 20 times. 
A dream is a wish…
