Both hubby and I don’t carry anything with us when we run. We don’t take our wallets or our phones – if something should happen to us – we have no ID. This has always been a nagging concern of mine..
While we were on holidays I made sure that we ran with at least our phones. Mainly for a little reassurance if we got lost or needed to be contacted. I bought spi belt from rebel sport for us. About $25.
It easily fits a phone and a set of keys. The pouch is made from a lycra type fabric and it sits tight against your body so it doesn’t bounce. The adjustable belt is a thick elastic so it is very comfortable.
But I didn’t want to have to wear this all the time. Through a a little more research I came across the company Road ID. They make ID products designed for sporty people.
I ordered an ID bracelet for both of us and I am very impressed with them.
My bracelet consists of an engraved tag and a wrist band. You can choose from quite a few colours (mine is pink) but it will also fit on any standard wristband.
Hubbys is wider and sits on a rubber bracelet that has a clasp similar to a watch band.
And CHEAP too. Mine was $16 and his was $30. Postage was a measly $2.95 form the US and was surprisingly quick.
We both try to be very careful when we run but some motorists are not as attentive as us. Just yesterday jogging on the footpath two cars backed out of their driveways in front of me. I saw one and luckily the other one saw me.
I have just ordered two bands for the kids too and am waiting for them to arrive. I put their names, ages and our contact numbers. We have just bought season tickets to “the worlds” and it will give me a little more peace of mind if they are wearing them and they get separated form us.
