My Favorite Things – Road ID

My Favorite Things


It’s FriYAY! First Friday in March and spring is here.  The pollen count is super high here in Florida, and I am thanking my lucky stars that I discovered how AMAZING Shaklee Alfalfa is for allergies 2 years ago.  But that’s a story for another day, today is all about my TOP running/outdoor activity essential…. a Road ID band! Do you have one of these?  There are a few different types of them, but the main idea is to store your information and emergency contact information should anything happen to you while you are out running, biking, hiking, exploring outdoors.  Honestly, if you workout alone in a gym, these are great to wear, too.  They allow you to be identified immediately should you encounter an obvious driver or have an unexpected medical response that renders you unable to share your information with emergency personnel.  It’s a little scary to think about, but unfortunately terrible things happen.  Fortunately, you can do something to help out during that time just by wearing one of these simple IDs! I personally like this one that has a unique ID on the back that connects to information like medications you are taking, multiple emergency contacts, your insurance, allergies, etc and you keep it updated.  There are other options for bands that have information printed directly on them.



I wear my band every time I go out! I just cannot express how truly important wearing one of these can be in saving your life.  The faster that emergency personnel can get your information, the faster they can help you in the best way possible.  These are SO affordable and everyone that engages in outdoor activities – whether alone or with a group – or workouts alone should wear one of these.  I know a lot of people out there commute to work via foot and public transportation and would benefit from having more information right on their person.
