I’ve been meaning to order a RoadID for years. Literally years. I tell myself after every close call with a car that seemed to swerve towards me instead of away from me, after every creepy noise I hear behind me at 5:30 am, every time I take two of my kids on a run with me – that I need a RoadID.

My Road ID Keeps This Little Guy Safe Too!
What’s a RoadID? It’s a nifty little gadget created by the father and son duo of Mike and Edward Wimmer, that carries important information on it, should something happen to you while you are out running, cycling, swimming, hiking, you name it! It helps first responders identify who you are faster and learn of any pertinent medical information, as well as alerting them who to contact immediately. In bad situations time is often of the essence, so having such information on you can be vital.

I finally bit the bullet, so they say, and ordered one – and guess what? I love it even more than I thought I would. I’m not a huge fan of walking around in athletic gear all day, when I go to race expos I wear jeans and typically a shirt from J Crew, no previous race jackets for me. I always find myself however secretly wanting people to know that I run. Road ID. Not only is this little thing functional but it’s pretty ‘cool’ looking in my opinion – so I’ve just been wearing it around town. Honestly maybe something could happen to me in line at Starbucks?! You just never know. I’ll be safe rather than sorry from now on, and maybe just maybe someone will see it and know that I secretly want them to know that I run.

In honor of the 26.2 miles I will be running next Saturday 3.26.2011 – I will be giving away a FREE Road ID of your choice!!

    I can totally relate. I have been telling myself I need to get one too for a couple years now but still haven't done it! I liked them on facebook.

  2. Pemberton Family says:

    I would probably have to go with the blue band and my favorite bible verse Proverbs 4:5-6

  3. If I win, I'd get the Original in pink. My inspirational words would be "Let your sparkle out."

  4. I tweeted! Great idea and what a fun giveaway…I'm a newer reader to your blog but am inspired by all you do with a family (I'm married w/no kids). Thanks for this chance to win and run safer!

  5. I also just "liked" Road ID on facebook and updated my status. Hoping to spread the word (and thanks for another entry!).

  6. Good website. I think I would get the red one (loved the yellow but it'd probably get dirtier a lot faster! 😉 and would get my catch phrase, "Huck it huge!" (kind of life "go for it!"), inspired by my favorite verse, John 10:10.

  7. Beachgirlrunning says:

    Such a great product! I've been meaning to order for awhile – yes – its on the neverending
    "to-do-list";). I love the one that goes on your shoe. Knowing me – it I had the bracelet, I would forget to put it on. As for a phrase – "Go – Mommy – go" would totally motivate me! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  10. Momma K and her Krew says:

    I like the wrist elite I think..and yellow to match my Minuzos unless I go all crazy and go orange. I always tell myself Believe…and just GO so I might put that on there…but I would really have to think. It is important to me so I want to make it count.

  11. carljsamuelson™ says:

    I followed/tweeted and liked/posted status update.

    I'd order the "Ankle ID", in black. Besides info & ICE; I'd have one of my favorite phrases inscribed: The first step…

    As in, "A marathon starts with the first step", or "Getting off the couch is the first step", etc., etc.
