I have a confession about running, and although it isn't tragic or terrible, it is something that might bite me in the ass someday. I don't run with ID. I don't run with a phone, I don't run with my license, I don't run with much of anything that would identify me if I was unable to speak for myself. The only think I usually have is my iPod which if you went into "contacts" would have my name and address...but even then, it is kind of hidden and I don't always run with it.
I know it isn't smart and I know that if I either got hit by a car or randomly went down on a run, it would be tough for emergency workers to ID me and to get in touch with the people who need to know where I am and what happened to me. I also know that it is easily remedied by carrying ID- but that is just one more step in getting myself out the door. I've been thinking about getting a RoadID for a couple of years now but haven't done it yet.
Since I'm feeling a little more serious about getting the RoadID, here's my question- would it be better to get one that has my emergency information on it very visibly (but that would need to be replaced whenever that information changed) or the one that is "flexible" and allows you to update the relevant information online BUT that emergency workers would need to call a number to access that information? (here's the link to the product comparison)
(and just so I don't sound as bad, Jordan doesn't run with ID either...and he runs on rural roads...I might have to get him a RoadID too)
