Through my years of running, I have varied the time of day I log my miles. Some miles in the morning, some in the afternoon, and not as much in the evening…but still a chance. No matter the time of the day there is always a small risk that I may be injured in some way, shape or form along the way. Accidents happen…
What if I am hurt in a way that I cannot tell someone who I am? How will my family know what is happening or where to find me? Beyond running, what it I lose my kid in a crowd or dog out of our yard? How could I be contacted in those situations?
If any of these fears have EVER slipped into your mind, you need to check out getting a Road ID. Check it out!
While I am a runner advocating for runners to consider purchasing a Road ID, it is certainly not just for runners. Road ID is for you, your significant other, your kids and yes, even your dog — anyone or any being in your family that needs to carry identification needs to have a Road ID.
As a runner, it is a hassle to have to carry my drivers license or other form of identification in case of an emergency. With a Road ID on my wrist or shoe, there is no longer a need for me to carry additional things on the run.
Road ID is a small metal badge that can be ordered to fit on several different straps. Whether you want a nice leather look or a simple colored stretch band, Road ID has a wrist ID that will work for you!
If you would rather add your Road ID to your fitness tracker, they have you covered there as well!
With 5-6 lines of text (depending on the width of the badge), your Road ID can inform first responders of the most important information about you. I have listed :
- year of birth
- city, state, country where I live
- an emergency contact’s name, phone number, and relationship
- blood type
- any allergies
But you can also list :
- additional emergency contacts
- a mantra or tagline
- additional health related information
Whether I am wearing my fitness tracker and Road ID Sidekick or my Wrist ID alone, I will always have a Road ID on my body in case of an accident or emergency. And you better believe everyone in my immediate family will be wearing their Road ID too!
My fellow BibRave Pro’s also went through various features on their review posts as well. Be sure to check them out!
