Road ID Review And Giveaway

If you run alone any time of day or night and have not checked out Road ID yet, I highly recommend that you do.  I have been running with a Road ID for nearly a year now and have been very happy with it.  I have luckily not needed to use it yet for an emergency which I am happy for but I still strap it on each time I head out the door by myself... day or night.

 Some may say that I can't prove it is needed because I haven't had to use it yet, but just like life insurance or a fire alarm you don't want to be caught without them when the dreaded time comes.  I don;t have any medical issues, but I would like my wife to know quickly in the event something does happen rather than them trying to figure out who I am while my family sits at home either worrying or maybe even not knowing what is going on.


When I first got a Road ID in September of last year I opted for the Wrist ID Elite.  I liked the clean look of it and it matched more of my clothes considering I opted for the black one.  I can't tell you how important it is that I match completely each time I head out the door at 5:00 am.... you just never know when you run into someone you know, or heaven forbid they run into you.

I have been very happy with the Wrist ID Elite and have wore it more times than I can count.  In January I had my only issue with my Wrist ID Elite when the clasp fell apart.  It didn't fall apart to the point where it was unusable because it was the safety catch, but I wanted to get it replaced so I didn't loose it somewhere on a run. When I contacted Road ID they quickly replaced it without any questions asked.

Recently I was contacted and asked to review the Road ID.  I opted to try one of the different products so I went with the Wrist ID Sport this time. I ordered the color red so it would stand out better in the event it was needed.  I am throwing caution to the wind concerning being caught with a Road ID that doesn't match my clothes.  I had thought about one of the other products but considering I run with so many different shoes I couldn't go with a Shoe ID, and the Ankle ID is just not for me since I spent too many years wearing an ankle tether and just can't get past the phobias (OK, this isn't true, even though it may have been easy to believe)

I really like the Wrist ID Sport just as much as the Wrist ID Elite, I now can say that I truly don't have a preference and I can base it solely on matching what I am wearing.  Like I mentioned earlier, I have not had the need to use it for an emergency, but if I ever do I will make sure I check back in with you and let you know how it goes.

Going through the process of building the tag information and making the purchase is very easy and I was through it really quick.  I chose name, address, and my wife's name and phone numbers.  Since I had an extra line I also went ahead and put my one medicine allergy since it could be something they would try to use in the case of an emergency.  I ran out of lines so I couldn't put the fact that I was also allergic to being hit by a car...... so I hope that never happens.
