Road ID--- You need it when you're physically active

Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP posted:
I have a terrific resource for people who are physically active, especially outdoors. If you were to run into trouble (e.g. an accident--- you fall and sustain an injury; someone hits you while riding your bike or running/walking, you're older and have chest pains) someone needs to know your name and your emergency contact information. I thought about this while training for my first triathlons. What would happen if I had a problem in the water or the road whether I'm in my neighborhood or miles away? Then, I thought what if something were to happen at the gym or the park?
So, I heard about this inexpensive way to help me feel more secure. It's called Road ID. It was originally meant for outdoor athletes but I have found it's great for everyone.
I bought a couple of these and prefer the wrist version, although there are ankle and knee options as well. There is a customized engraved plate that's easy to read. Mine is a simple screaming yellow velcro strap with my name, my hubby's name and phone as well as my BFF's as a back up. Then you can even add a line of inspiration to power you through a challenging workout.
I wear mine whenever I workout. It's waterproof and keeps me feeling secure that if, heaven forbid, something were to happen to me, people would know who to call.
I think this is a really valuable resource and the only one out there. I would highly recommend everyone scope this out.

Road ID's are important for anyone who are out and about without their wallet or usual ID information. Easy to get and now they even have slimmer versions for small wrists. You can do this online with easy instructions to follow. Not expensive and well worth it. May save your life.

You got that right!!! I swear by them. They now even come with a chip with your important personal and medical information. Everyone needs this as they go outdoors and to the gym and become more physically active.
