Road ID Review and Sweepstakes!

In the spirit of being thankful (as apparently we are already coming up on Thanksgiving, pretty crazy, huh?), I think it is time for yet another Sweepstakes.  Why not, right?  I am sure you all are not complaining.  I personally can't get enough of them.  And I love you all so much, no I am being serious, you guys are the best, that I can't help but offer you, what I believe, is another great product and this one might literally save your life!

This summer I was reading through my blogs when I read a sad story about a blogger tri-athlete that an awful accident while out biking.  She crashed her bike and blacked out.  Luckily, someone found her and she had her cell phone on her and called her husband.  This story, thank G-d, actually turned out ok.  This woman is totally amazing!  But it really got me thinking, when I used to run, I never carried a cell phone.  What if something were to happen to me...this is no good. I can see my Grandmother freaking out my computer now as I write this.

But don't worry Grandma, I shaped up!  This was not a safe way to go about things.  In comes Road ID.  This company must have been thought up by a mother/grandmother/athlete who knew more than me and thought about how to stay safe while running, biking, swimming etc.  They realized that going out on "athletic outings" without ID is a BIG no-no.  But also realized that it is not practical for us athletes to always carry cell phones or IDs.  So they devised this nifty little product:


This "Road ID" is a bracelet used by runners or athletes when they are out and about, but don't want to handle a phone or other ID.  It comes in multiple forms and colors (you could even attach something to your shoe laces kind of like a timing chip), but this one is the one I got and it is absolutely my favorite.  It has a place for your name, your "in case of emergency people" and their phone numbers, any sort of medications you take, allergies, or conditions, AND room for a mantra.  Mine has my name, Aaron's name and phone number, my dad's name and phone number, and my mantra: 26.2 (short and simple!).

So now that we put my grandmother at ease knowing that I am safe with my bracelet (and my running buddy), what are the other benefits of this thing? Well, first it is blue (you can pick your own color) so it matches my racing shirt, shorts, and sneakers (never hurts to be fashionable, come on who does not like to match).  There are also a bunch of different styles, not just the one I got.  Second, it is so lightweight you never even notice it except when you want to look at your mantra.  I have tons of shoulder problems so I always worry about wearing something on my wrist but this does not bother me in the least.  Plus, when I take it off, it is as if it was never there.  In other words, no chafing! Score for Road ID.

That is really it.  It may be plain and simple but let me tell you this thing is a life saver and I don't leave home without it.  You better bet I wore it all 26.2 miles, would not have had it any other way!  Road ID has also been nice enough to sponsor a Sweepstakes of this product.  Not bad huh...which means time for the rules....
