RoadID

I just went to order my RoadID, since I officially signed up for my second half marathon, it was time to make sure I was safe when I was out running.  I was looking at them this morning before I left for work when my daughter said she needed one also.   Simple enough.....green for me and pink for Evie.  All of that seems simple until you get this message:


My favorite part is the last paragraph! It made me chuckle! I didn't order it this morning since both the colors and size we want are back ordered, but will soon.

Last night I hit the gym to get my workout in. The workout was slow and sluggish my legs felt like lead weights and my lungs were like an 80 year old smoker! I completed 2.5 miles on the treadmill then started the push up challenge. Initial test - completed 6 push ups. I figured I might as well start day one and completed the sets 6, 6, 4, 4, and 5, by the last set my arms were feeling it.  When I did this challenge before I did assisted push ups and at the start of that challenge I could only do 1 real push up and that was barely. Baby steps to improvement!

Do you have a RoadId or another form of identification when you are out on runs?

  3. No, I don't and everytime I see the Road ID ad in the back of runners' world I think...I really should get one of these. That's hilarious the last paragraph! Good cop, bad cop.

  4. I have the shoe Road ID. Glad you are getting one.

    Don't you love a company that understands your frustration with a back order? I work in purchasing and thought that last paragraph was great.

  6. Yeah, I have a road ID, as does my SIL who is my running partner. The idea is a great one and the company is super too. I have a quote from my 'coach' on mine (see my blog). It says "meow!"

  7. No, but I've been thinking about getting one. I usually carry my driver's license in my small waist pack when I run since I have to drive to my favorite trails (I hate running on the busy streets around my house) and have to carry my car keys anyway. I keep a map of the park I'm running in, too, since I seem to be amazing at finding the only closed section of trail in the entire park. lol
