But, flash forward 4 years and I have now followed my Dad's advice and I've got my ID.
|The nice shiny tin it was delivered in|
was super simple and quick.
The site also includes testimony after testimony of how an ID quite literally saved someone's life.
|Listed all my vitals and an inspirational phrase|
"If you can't speak for yourself, Road ID will speak for you."The quote says it all. I've been very lucky that I haven't been in a situation where I couldn't speak for myself. But now, me and my family can rest easier knowing I'll have a voice wrapped around my wrist when I'm "out there."
|The voice to speak for me|
I don't have any major medical condtions or allegies so I had a little more room for an inspirational phrase. I chose to put a note to my son. I had limited characters so I struggled to get it just right.
That little boy is my muse. He's been there since my first mile, watching me push myself pass my previous abilities. My heart's desire is that this will help him grow to know that he shouldn't limit himself, he should dream big, and mostly never give up. When I'm struggling to get up a hill, when I'm out of breath, or when I'm just completely spent, he's the thought that enters my mind. And then somehow the strength to push through shows up.

And most importantly I believe with my whole heart:
Philippians 4:13 (New International Version, ©2010)
13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
I think I got my money's worth on the last two lines of the ID.
The worst thing that's happened to me this season was when I fell and scraped up my knee. I was all alone and more embarrassed than hurt. I snapped a pic and sent it to my husband (ahhh....living in a world with smart phones...), told him where I was and ran home. Now if it had been my head instead, who knows what might have happened. I also have run in other cities this season. Whether in a race or just in a neighborhood, there wasn't anyone near who could have spoken for me.

If the answer is no, my friends at Road ID want to help you out. They are going to give one of you an eCard to road ID. With the card you can order any ID of your choice.
So here's what you need to do:
Leave comments letting me know:
1. What model you would choose if you won (Check the site http://RoadID.com)
2. What fun phrase would you include as a motivator on your ID
3. You "Liked" them on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/RoadID)
4. You follow them on Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/roadid)5. You think I'm awesome. (okay, that won't help you win, but it'll make me happy)
Each one of those tasks will get you a separate entry into a random drawing for the eCard. I will hold the drawing in one week. Good luck everyone, and be safe out there!
