I know that many readers of this blog are outdoor exercisers — runners, bikers, and walkers. If you’re like me, you worry about things from a safety perspective. (Warning: morbid thoughts comin’ up.)
On the one hand, you want your ID on you in case you’re hit by a car or otherwise incapacitated — but on the other hand, if you’re attacked, the last thing you want is for the attacker to have both your keys AND your address (which they will if you’re carrying your license).
So when I heard of this nifty bracelet I just about swooned — it has your name, city, and the phone numbers of loved ones — no address. (You can also add information about blood type, allergies, and more.) Perfect!
It’s $29.99 at RoadID.com. WristID Elite

Anon for this one
Someone mentioned this above, but I’m saying it again. Get something like this, but also tell someone where you are going and when you plan to be back. Make it a buddy system, even if you are states away from one another– a simple text message telling your sister you are going for a run in the park and will text when you get back. Especially if you live alone. Most people have someone who worries about them– take advantage of it.
Anyone have the shoe pocket pouch on the same website and use it to carry keys, ID, $, etc?
How comfortable is it? Or are there any other shoe pouch products that people love?
And while we’re at it- any good hydration systems? I’m working on upping my runs and finding that I now need to carry water (especially in this heat!), but hate just carrying a bottle when I’m running. Do those waist belts I see with water bottles work, or do they jostle too much? What about the velcro-looking things people use to hold water bottles in their hands? Camelbaks?
I ordered a Fuel Belt (the waist belt) a few months ago and decided it would drive me nuts. I’m an hourglass, so nothing stays on my hips–my triathlon race belt always ends up right under my bust and constricts my breathing. If you don’t have this problem, the only thing I would suggest is to order up. The sizing goes off your natural waist, and it was incredibly uncomfortable way up there. I would’ve wanted to wear it at my hips, so I probably needed a M-L instead of an XS-S based on the size chart (25″ waist, ~37-38″ hips).
I use this (http://trisports.com/ulfapl.html) and I have to say I actually kind of like it now. I used to see it as a necessary evil and kept looking for alternatives that I didn’t have to carry (like the waist belts), but because of the riding-up problem I decided this was probably the best bet. I like this one because it has the zippered pouch that you can fit keys/ID/chapstick in. You can also buy spares of just the bottle (cheaper than the bottle/pouch combo) if you don’t get around to washing bottles frequently enough and want to switch them out. You could also use the spare for a longer run if you’re using a Gatorade-type drink and want to loop to your car to swap it out with a new one from the cooler instead of refilling with water (where I live, the water fountains are close to scalding–gross!).
I will say that you definitely notice the water moving around when the bottle gets less than half-full, and sometimes it gets tedious switching hands (for some reason, I find it more natural to carry in my right than left). But I know that I’d probably die of heat and a general “get off of me” feeling with a Camelback, and I know you also feel the sloshing with the waist packs. There may be a better handheld option though–REI carries several variations of the one I linked to, so you could just pick whichever feels the most natural.
This is a wonderful idea. Carrying identification always seems like a pain when I’m going for a run, but accidents happen. I would engrave mine with my name, parent’s names, parent’s phone number, blood type and allergies. Though things like this are handy, it makes me nervous when women talk about running/walking at night with head phones. Being ready in the event of an emergency is a great idea, but preventing them is even better! Stay safe ladies.
