What do you carry with you when you run?
If its just a short run (less than 10ks), I just put on my running kit and head out. If its more than 10Ks then I bring my fuel belt where I usually put some money to buy Gatorade or something sweet, my phone if I’m meeting up with people and if its more than 20ks then I also pack some power gel.
Do you carry any form of identification?
I didn’t even think about carrying an ID until Tin showed me her RoadID. For us runners, specially those who run alone, it makes perfect sense to carry some form of identification and list of emergency numbers. One of my friends, even included her allergies in her ID.
Before I got my RoadID, I printed out my details in a small piece of paper and made improvised lamination by covering it with scotch tape to make it sweat resistant. I used to put it in the small pocket of my running tights. Not really immediately visible but at least its there and it made me feel a little more secure.
We got our RoadIDs last week! (Thanks to DATC for sharing your discount coupons to us! Thanks to K&H for ordering and the special delivery.)
My wrist ID has my name and contact numbers of people who will not freak out and will be of help in case of an emergency.
Our RoadIDs … wrist, fixx and shoe versions.
