Road ID Review & Giveaway

You know that saying "Safety first?"  Well, it's uber important for an athlete...especially when out on the open road.  Since we aren't in that age where our medical info or identification is embedded in a microchip under our skin yet (I think?), the next best thing is to wear an ID of some sort.  A Road ID in particular.

Goober's is pink, mine's purple. Awwww.
I've had my Wrist ID Elite Road ID for some time now, prior to being contacted by OutsidePR for a review.  But when I was asked to test Road ID out for real, I jumped at the chance:  Goober goes running with me now, and she needed her own ID just in case.  I designed a Wrist ID Sport in girly pink for Miss Goober, and also ordered a bright blue Firefly for my night runs.  Sorry flashing blue Aetna light...I just don't like chasing you down the street.

Goober's ID has her name, full birthdate, hometown, 3 emergency phone numbers, a "NKA" (No Known Allergies) and "Baby Goober" for good measure.  My Road ID has my name, year of birth, hometown, 2 emergency contacts, my penicillin allergy alert and "Angelfish - LiveLoveLaugh" for luck.  That's some really important information in case anything happens to me during one of my solo runs with the Goob monster.  I truly hope my Road ID is never put to use...
"Don't go into the light, Carolann!"
The blue Firefly is pretty awesome.  It either blinks or is a constant LED light for all your night running safety needs.  I clip this bad boy on the back of my running hat and it stays put (unlike some other blue flashing lights that shall remain anonymous...).  My only gripe would be that turning the light on and off by twisting the top kind of hurts.  I always have to use my shirt as a buffer.  Owie.
 

I want you to be safe out there!!  And now for the giveaway!
One lucky winner will receive a $35 gift code for a Road ID.
