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 RoadID.com or click here.
- Coupon #2: ThanksDennis9393865 (good until: 12/14/2011) – To order, simply go to RoadID.com or click here.
Enjoy & be safe!
