Road ID Review

A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to pick any Road ID of my choosing. I had been wanting one for awhile, and knew exactly the one for me. The shoe ID. As a runner we need to be so cautious of our surroundings, and also aware that it’s not the safest sport considering you usually do it alone. I myself never carry my cell phone or really anything but my ipod for that matter and so a Road ID is a great idea. I chose the shoe ID so that it would always be attached to my sneaks and I’d never need to remember to wear it (the other styles are bracelets). Here it is on my shoe:

It has my name, year of birth, and emergency contacts. For some reason I had trouble figuring out the right way for it to go on, and wasn’t expecting velcro, but once I put it on the laces, it stayed for good. I’m glad the Road ID has really made its way around the blogging community since safety as a trend is never a bad thing.

Do you have a Road ID or run with a phone or license?

    Pretty sure if I got attacked/kidnapped/beat up/had a heart attack during a run it would take a minimum of three weeks for anyone to identify me. The Road ID is a really good idea!!

    Have you seen these yet? We joked about getting this for my sister’s 21st birthday in case her overindulgence in alcohol made it difficult for her to identify home. http://tinyurl.com/374wrmj

    I don’t have one!! But during my races when I see people getting taken away by ambulances… I have found myself thinking (because I feel like I should be taken away too! LOL) “maybe I should get one of those ID’s”.
