why I love my RoadID ...

Since I told you all about Doodle's RoadID obsession earlier this week, I thought I would share why I love my RoadIDs so much (I have pink, yellow and purple ones). A few weeks ago, Scott at OutsidePR and the people at RoadID helped to make me a safer runner, wife and mother. They sent me this beauty (which I haven't taken off since it arrived).

It's pretty, right? Thought so. That's why Doodle wanted one so bad. (And I did get her and her sisters each one. Although, they all decided pink was the best choice for them.) Anyway, so unless you have been living in a dark hole, you know that EVERYONE needs a RoadID. And by everyone, I mean everyone. (What? You don't have one yet? What are you thinking? Get to shopping. In fact, here's a coupon code for $1 off - ThanksJeremy746525)

If you ever step out of your house, for any reason whatsoever, you would be safer if you wore a RoadID. It speaks for you, when you can't speak for yourself. And that is just one reason why I love mine. But there are plenty more ...

I love my RoadID because it allows me to run worry-free.

I love my RoadID because it doesn't clash with my outfits.

I love my RoadID because I believe in the owners' mission - to educate all outdoor enthusiasts about the vital importance of ID.

I love my RoadID because it doesn't chafe me.

I love my RoadID because it's design allows for choices. Like which color band will I wear today? Purple, yellow, blue, green, black ...

I love my RoadID because it comes with top notch customer service. Something that is often hard to find.

I love my RoadID because life happens. And there is nothing you can do to stop it. So, why do you love your RoadID?

I keep saying I am going to get one and I haven't. Keep bugging me to do it! I love your second reason!

Hmm, never really thought of just wearing it for everyday reasons... great idea!

And that one is PRETTY!

I love mine because it is pink and cute and it really does give me a sense of calm when I am running. My friend and I almost got hit the other day and all I kept thinking is I am glad that I have my ID on.
P.S. my three year old wants a purple one like yours, she said it is prettier than my pink one. Girls!!!!!

I had been thinking about getting one and I don't know why I put it off. Since reading your blog and you posting about them, I did buy one and its on its way now! Thank you for reminding us runners that saftey comes first!

Ok this is getting weird. I think we're Stepford wives. First the floral skirt, now the purple Road ID (love it). Just the knee highs and you have a running twin!

I keep meaning to get one because I live out in the middle of nowhere and run country roads. Thanks for reminding me to look into it.

My husband and I both have one. I love it because it makes me feel just a little bit safer when I go out for a run or bike ride by myself. No matter how safe you are, it's usually the other people that you have to worry about. You never know what can happen.

I just got one and have another on the way. I wish hubby would wear one but he refuses. My oldest is begging for one; it will be a birthday present in November if he still wants one.

I love mine. I've been wearing it for at least 2 years. Ordered one for my dad last year after he passed out from high blood pressure. He wears his everywhere he goes. My 6 year old wants one too. When I take him out for a walk, he insists on wearing mine. He thinks he has to have it on when he works out. Too cute!! I'm thinking about ordering one for him and his little brother to wear when we go to the zoo and seaworld this summer.

I bought one as a gift for my BF. He commutes by bike to work and it made me feel better knowing my phone # was on it. And his allergies! A few months later, I bought my own. :)
