A little boy is happily playing at a crowded water park. Suddenly, he looks up and realizes that he can't find his parents. He frantically races around, searching everywhere for his mom or dad. He finds an employee, but he's too young to remember his parents' phone numbers. Meanwhile, the child is frightened and alone. The parents are probably somewhere in the water park, distraught at the thought that their child is missing. I saw this take place just a few weeks ago at a water park.
A woman gets up nearly every morning and runs before the sun even comes up. Cars pass her without so much as a glance. This girl wears reflective running gear, but it's possible that one day a car might not see her and could actually hit her. That girl running bright and early in the morning so happens to be me. =)
And because this is a personal style blog:
Hat: Nike, Sports Authority
Shirt: Saucony, Running Wild
Shorts: Champion, Target
Shoes: Brooks Adrenaline 11, Running Wild
What is the common factor of these scenarios? In each of these scenarios, had the person been wearing a Road ID, contacting their family would have been simple! Road ID is a band that is customized with your name, any phone numbers you want contacted in case of an emergency and any information you deem important. I am so incredibly excited to introduce you to this product!
My husband is always training for something and is currently training for his first Ironman. He wears his Road ID all the time! If he evers overexerts himself and passes out, I'll know right away. If he (God forbid!) ever gets hit by a car, the paramedics will immediately know his name and who to call.
If that little boy at the water park had been wearing a Road ID, the water park employee could have quickly called the little boy's parents and they would have been reunited within minutes. My Little Guy (who is four) now has his own Road ID and he wears it every time we're out and about!
I also have my own Road ID and I love it! Not only is it cute (it's pink and I can change out the band to wear different colors!), but it's also practical! If anything were to ever happen to me while out running and I were unresponsive for some reason, the paramedics or people passing by would be able to quickly alert my husband. I also listed my allergies on the ID, so that I don't receive something to which I'm allergic.
It's a brilliant concept, right? Typically, when you're involved in an outdoor sport, you don't really have a good place to carry ID. So, more often than not, rather than try to wedge your ID into your shoe or somewhere in your shorts, you just forego identification, because you think there's no need for it. However, there is a great need for it! When my husband almost got hit by a car, we realized that he needed a way to carry his ID asap and that is when we found Road ID! I believe (and they do too!) that every runner, surfer, hiker, cyclist, outdoor enthusiast and child should be wearing a Road ID!
And you know what? Road ID wants to give one of YOU your very own Road ID and a Road ID t-shirt! I've got my own Road ID, but I don't have a shirt! So, you are very lucky indeed. =)
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
All you have to do is comment on this post how you would use your ID. Are you a runner, a hiker, a cyclist or a surfer? Is there some other outdoor sport for which this Road ID might come in handy?
