If Found, Please Call

I didn't want to do my run today, which is when I know I really NEED to run. So, I procrastinated until this evening, and then went out around 7 pm for a 6 miler. It was a good run -- the evening was cool and temperate -- and I was glad I got it done.

The best thing about my run this evening was that I took my new Road ID for its maiden voyage! I got a giftcard for Road ID for my b-day last month, and I ordered the sport ID in pink, and it arrived earlier this week. And it is pur-ty! (I would take a pic and show it to you but it has vital, personal info on it -- like my address and home phone number and I don't need one of you lurking outside my bedroom window at 2 am.) It's kinda like dog tags for a human: If I'm lost, injured or dead while running, people know to contact Jerry.

The only thing about wearing it was that having something on my wrist instinctively made me feel like I was wearing a Garmin -- which, sadly I was not. (By the time I got around to having the time to contacting customer service about the Garmin, it was past their calling hours, so I sent an email. Hope to get a response soon. Or, better yet, hope the Garmin arrives soon!)

Add me to the list of people who need to get off their butts and get one. Sigh.

I ordered a pink one too! Should be coming soon!

Any rumors of me lurking outside your window are... unsubstantiated...

I didn't know they had pink ones! I have 1 black and 1 red.
Reassuring, isn't it?

Did you call about the Garmin? It is taking a long time! Hang in there.

I still haven't started wearing my RoadId...I guess that defeats the point of getting it, huh? Tomorrow I will wear it!

Good reminder I need to update mine!

I just use a marker to write all of the pertinent info on my body!

No need for a picture of your RoadID - I have already checked you out on Google Maps - Street View!

i went with the foot road id because I was worried about something else on my wrist, but I really love having it

Definitely a good thing to have... and a cute accessory too!
