Road ID Review and Giveaway!

on July 31, 2012

Giveaway is now CLOSED.  Thanks!  Winner will be announced 8/12/2012

****RFYHP now has 200 followers on Facebook!  Thanks so much :****

ROAD ID!!!  If you don’t know what it is, you should.

Run Find your Happy Pace is VERY excited to be partnering with Road ID for this awesome giveaway to one (1) lucky winner of a Road ID Bracelet!  The “must have” item for EVERY runner!  I know I like to joke around and not take myself too seriously.  But when it comes to safety, it’s no joke.  First off I want to thank Road ID.  After sharing why my bracelet is so important to me, they contacted me and offered to partner with RFYHP for this giveaway.  I was more than happy to share because I truly believe in this product.

What is Road ID you might ask?  Well I refer to it as my safeguard, running pal and ultra cool running bracelet. My bracelet lists my name, year of birth, city, two emergency contact numbers and of course my mantra FIND YOUR HAPPY PACE :).  (yes even the little smile)  But you can customize your bracelet with whatever you need, name, medical condition, etc.  This small bracelet can make a HUGE difference to you and ER personnel in an emergency situation.

Road ID speaks when you can’t.

The concept of ROAD ID came from Mike Wimmer (father) and Edward Wimmer (son)
Co-Owners of Road ID.  
If you want the true back story behind Road ID you can click here…. Road ID Our Story.

Why is Road ID the must have item for every runner?  Well if you can answer yes to any of the following questions (and I bet you can) you need one:

1)  I sometimes/always run alone

2) I have a medical condition

3)  I run alone with my young children

4) My spouse is often deployed / away on business

5) There is a chance of me being involved in an accident while running

6) I live alone

I know we can all answer yes to at least #5.  Running is awesome but unfortunately there is always a chance of accident/injury.  I personally can answer yes to at least 4 of the above.  I am a military wife and mother of three. I wear my Road ID every day!  In fact other than taking it off for the above picture, I never take it off.  I don’t even realize its there.

I wear the Wrist ID Slim (click for details) in purple, but it comes in many different colors and styles.  I just love purple.  If you look close in the following pictures you can see mine. Its on my left arm usually right next to my Garmin.  (at the Shamrock, Diva and and of course anytime I “Sweat Pink” )  I hope I never need it but I know I wouldn’t be without it.

that's me on the right

Road ID at the Diva Half

Now you can own one too, personalized to you, in your favorite color.  Road ID has given me a promotion code to pass along to one (1) lucky winner.

Even if you don’t win please consider purchasing one of your own.

My Road ID was less than $20 but nothing can put a price on my piece of mind.

Please visit Road ID  and  Road ID on Facebook and please let them know Run Find your Happy Pace sent you.

Since I believe in this product so much I am going to make this giveaway really simple for everyone.  

1) Become a follower of my blog.  That’s it.  One entry per person.  (and if your new come join us on Facebook too!)

2) Already a follower leave me a post on this blog.  Thank you everyone!

****T his giveaway will end at midnight on Saturday August 11th EST. Thanks!****

Please feel free to share this blog and Road ID with all your running friends.

Run Find your Happy Pace…with Road ID.

    Following– and I have to echo everything you said about Road ID. I’ve worked in social work for too long to tell you that there is a reason why scary things are called “the unexpected.” Having that kind of identification and emergency contact information on you so anyone helping you should something happen can make a world of difference in your outcome. Thanks for spreading the word!

  21. I will follow your blog now! I have been on the lookout for some sort of personal identification label as I too run alone (and often late at night). This seems perfect!

  31. kellicbaker says:

    I have bought one for my oldest Who runs and rides with me sometimes. I am eventually going to get one for my youngest and husband. I feel the entire family should have a ROAD ID.

  32. Beckie Moore says:

    Love your blog!

  33. Mercedes Smith says:

    Road ID is awesome! I have a purple one & a new green slim ID. Always wear one or the other when running.

  34. Following on FB and your blog!

  35. I am leaving this post, not just to win RoadID, but because I use them now. I was a flt. attendant for years, I would run out of hotels with nothing but a room key. If something happened, they would have no way of knowing who I was, espec. in other countries. Or, even if you travel! Plus, I have son, who used to take in stroller, but still walks with me, if something happened to both of us, God forbid, then, I have his first name on their too. Or, now, you can actually purchase shoe id with just initials and phone no. ect. for lil’ ones. But, it is a great idea! I have had great cust. service from them! Thanks! Keep up great work! Love the site, blog! Happy Running/Walking!

  36. fitnstitchin says:

    I love your blog! I’m so glad I came across it on facebook. I just started running and the RoadID sounds like a great “safe” idea. Thanks again for all of the great inspiration and info on your blog! ~Happy Running

  37. Erica H. says:

    Just found your blog today but I love it! I am currently training for my first half marathon and the Road ID sounds so great! I can’t wait to check out all the different styles and colors!

  38. mamajourney says:

    I now subscribe to your blog. I would love to win a Road ID. Thanks for the chance!

  39. Lisa Avery says:

  43. Kristen Warren says:

    I sooooooooooooooo need one of these! My husband travels alot on business! He is currently gone on a 5 week trip. I either run alone or have my 2 boys with me. Having a Road ID would put so mnay of my family and friends at ease while I am out and about getting my run on!
