**Thank you for your well-wishes and prayers!  They worked!  Headed to the gym now to sweat the rest of this gunk out.  Just in time for Tuesday Trainer too – don’t forget to submit your LEG moves by tonight!**

Don’t you just hate it when you get hit by a car while you’re out running?  Then they take you to the hospital and nobody knows who you are or who to contact?!?!

Are you tired of having to run with your Kate Spade purse in hand, just so you can have your driver’s license around if you need it??

Those shoes that don’t have a cool id.  They’re sad.

Bare wrists, begging for some identification.

All HUGE problems. 

With one tiny solution.

I was recently asked if I wanted to get my own RoadID – ummm, duh, yes!   Read their story here.

If I’m going to be logging mileage for this upcoming half mary, I’d better have some protection.  And if having a RoadID makes it easier for my mom to sleep at night, I’m in!!

The Top 10 reasons you should wear ID when doing ANY outdoor sport (not just running!):

1. If you can’t speak for yourself, Road ID will speak for you.
2. Road ID enables First Responders to immediately contact family members and friends.
3. Road ID enables family members to provide additional details about your health or give consent for potentially life saving procedures.
4. Road ID enables hospital staff to locate vital medical records.
5. Road ID can communicate medical conditions or allergy information to medical staff.
6. Road ID can prevent serious delays in treatment by saving crucial time during the “golden hour” of medical treatment.
7. It’s far better to have Road ID and not need it than to need Road ID and not have it. It’s not just a piece of gear, it’s peace of mind.
8. Accidents happen far more than you think they do. Each year approximately 450,000 of us are taken to hospitals unconscious and without identification.
9. Road ID looks good on and makes a statement about your athletic lifestyle – not to mention that studies would probably prove that people that wear Road ID are considerably smarter than those that don’t.
10. Road ID can save your Life. Period.

You can customize everything about your ID!!  I’ll take you through my own customization process, minus the part where Clara laughs and spits semi-chewed string cheese on the computer screen while I’m trying to type in my information.  I’ll leave that curds and whey part out of the story.

First, decide how you want to WEAR your RoadID – on your wrist, your ankle or your shoe. 

ROADID

When designing my own, I chose the shoe option.  I knew I didn’t want to have to hassle with remembering to bring it along.  Much like a my close friend, Richard Marx, would say – on my shoe, my RoadID would be right there waiting for me.

Next up, select the COLOR you want.  I chose blue.  (wishing they had a green option <-favorite color).

After that, you tell them what information you want on the ID.  On each line, I was given some suggestions of what to write, then I simply filled in each line with my own information.

  • My name/Date of Birth
  • City, State
  • Contact 1 Name and Phone Number/Relationship
  • Contact 2 Name and Phone Number/Relationship
  • Motto

(So tempted to write 867-5309, but didn’t.)

I was going to have “Get UP and move” as my motto, but the more I thought about it, I like to get OUT of the house and go.  So guess that’s my motto – “Get OUT and MOVE!”.  I like it.

It wasn’t long before my sweet little ID came in the mail.  I immediately took her for a 5 mile run.

It hasn’t come off.  You can’t feel it.  The RoadID is just there for peace of mind in case something goes wrong while I’m out running. 

->Funny story – my ID came in handy the other day when I left my shoes in the Fitness Center locker room.  Not 30 minutes after I left them, I got a call from someone saying they found my shoes. 

And ONE sock ?!?!  #mommybrain

    In the winter time I HAVE to run with sleeves that cover my hands. For some reason I have to be able to pull my sleeves over my hands. To top off the weirdness-I hate gloves and will tuck my sleeves over my hands instead!

  2. Katie W. says:

    I always run with an ID, credit card, and phone! When it’s cold outside that’s easy, but summer time it’s a little harder…

    Also, I tweeted your giveaway! @Emancipated

  3. Jo says:

    As an asthmatic I always need my inhaler to run. In fact if I forget to take it with me you can guarantee that day will be run I need it most.

  4. @PavementRunner says:

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    My must have is my Garmin watch. I feel lost w/out knowing how far I’ve gona and how my pace is. There are occasions where I run w/out it to feel more “free,” but it’s something I use 97% of the time.

    I also tweeted and posted to my FB

  5. julie says:

    don’t enter me because i never run and someone who runs should win haha but i wanted to say that i bought one for deej for xmas and she LOVEDDDDDDDDDD it. i got the red one and wrote ‘boo ya’ on it because it’s what she screams everytime the giants score a touchdown

  6. Cellabella says:

    I always make sure I bring my city’s access card on my runs. It’s how I get into all the city’s bathroom so I don’t have to have potty breaks in the woods ;)

  7. Haley says:

    I need my wedding band! I don’t know what it is, b/c I don’t think anyone is going to be checking me out – especially since I run sans makeup (yikes!) and hair pulled back! But, I guess I wear it in case, God forbid, anything ever did happen, someone would know that I have a husband and try to get in contact with him??? #thisgirlneedsroadid

  8. Bridget B. says:

    I MUST have a headband to run. The hair flying in my face or even just grazing my cheeks can be really distracting. Haha. This is a great idea! My mom always tells me to be careful when running outside too.

  9. Alicia from Poise in Parma says:

    I am really attached to my iPod, but am surprised how well my runs go when I don’t have it. It also depends on where I’m running: if I’m in my neighborhood, I take less stuff. When on a public trial, I make sure to take my license, but would prefer a Road ID instead!

  10. STUFT Mama says:

    Oops- did not mean to comment twice before. But… just tweeted! :) And… already submitted my Tuesday Trainer video. Soo excited it’s back (and that you’re feeling better)!!!

  11. STUFT Mama says:

    Oh man. I love Road ID. I have the necklace, but to be honest have no idea where it is. Oops. I need one I can just keep on my shoe too! AWESOME giveaway!!! So glad you’re feeling better!!!

  12. STUFT Mama says:

    I need to have my Running Room jacket, otherwise there is no way I’d be able to run in the -20 degree weather up here in Ontario, Canada!
