Essential Runner Equipment

November 23, 2011 — 1 Comment

I wrote a while back that I’ve started building my “runner’s necessities”, but this is one that was a non-negotiable…essential item.  [The example above is what mine looks like, except with correct phone numbers!]

I saw an ad for Road ID In Runner’s World and ordered one a while back.  I opted for the “Wrist ID – slim“, since it is about the since of the leather bracelet that I already wear.  It’s about the size of those “cause” bracelets, though a little more heavy duty.  It is comfortable and I really don’t notice that I have it on.  I originally ordered a large, but found that it was too big and now wear a medium.  (The large will come in handy if I want to wear the bracelet over a long-sleeved shirt or jacket  while running.)

Road ID is a father/son company started to address the “getting hurt without ID” situation.  You can read their story here.

If you are a runner, cyclist, walker, or just want to wear an ID bracelet, consider picking one of these up.  They have several types – if you’re not into wearing bracelets.

When I ordered, they gave me a coupon that I could pass along to friends.  The coupon is good for $1 off any Road ID order.  Since I’ve placed two orders, I have a total of 40 $1 coupons:

  • Coupon #1: ThanksDennis9390334 (good until: 12/07/2011) – To order, simply go to or click here.
  • Coupon #2: ThanksDennis9393865 (good until: 12/14/2011) – To order, simply go to or click here.

Enjoy & be safe!
