Road ID

I have been tossing around the idea of buying the Road ID for some time, and I finally broke down and did it last week. I usually ran with nothing, but sometimes would put my drivers license in my pocket and hope that it did not fall out.

With this it is much easier. I strap it on my wrist and have nothing to worry about. I got the yellow one, because I like to be noticed. It straps pretty snug on your wrist with Velcro. It is very comfortable, but I would like it to fit loose like a bracelet rather than snug like a watch and I am thinking about ordering the larger size band for it. The metal tag is removable and compatible with the other Road ID products.

I think that this is a pretty smart piece of equipment to have, considering you never know what is going to happen. I have had a couple close calls in my short time of running, and it makes me think "what if?"

Hopefully I never have to rely on this thing, but I am glad that I have it.

It's always good to have ID. I ended up putting my info on my garmin. I'm cheap that way.

I have one too for my ankle. It's great.
Except we've moved and now the address is no longer valid. Oh well. At least my hubby's cell is still on there.

Wow, that's a pretty neat idea. If I really start to seriously jog, I'll have to get one.

i'm sure your family is glad you have one. my parents were appreciative of it when i got one although they still don't like me running at 5am alone. fyi, you'll definitely want to toss it in the wash after awhile! :) i always take the tag off but i don't know if you really have to.
