I was heading out for one of my runs last week. It was around 7:30pm (had to wait until my son went to bed), so needless to say it was dark. My husband always gets a little worried about me running alone at night, but that is one of the only ways to get my runs in.
So, he hands me a flashlight to carry with me as he tells me his normal concerns...be careful, don't get run over etc. I turned to him and said..."what I really need is a Road ID?"
Him not being a runner I explained to him what it was and what I had read about them....I told him that if I would get run over, they would be able to identify me by my Road ID. Well, of course his response is..."You better not get run over...."
So, my question is, how important is having a Road ID when you are running outside? I do quite a few runs outside, and with the weather getting nicer, I'm sure I will do plenty more. I would like to see what others have to say about the pros/cons of a Road ID....
Have a great day!
Run with you later,
