Keeping safe and Go Sport ID giveaway

With the heinous disappearance of Sherry Arnold, safety has been on my mind a lot lately.

I admit, I've been guilty of hitting the road and having accidentally forgotten to bring any kind of ID. I've been lucky but foolish to not make it a bigger priority.

Recently, I became twitter / FB friends with Go Sport ID - when they were kind enough to recognize a recent blog of mine, I decided to reach out to them to see if they'd be interested in doing a giveaway with me. They said sure.  They were even kind enough to let me try one out for myself too.



I got mine in the mail a few weeks ago and I love it. It's comfortable and strapping it on has become as second nature as putting my sneakers on before heading out. I have some peace of mind knowing that if something happens while I'm out during a run, someone can use my emergency contact numbers that are strapped around my wrist.

I like Go Sport ID because they are functional, stylish and affordable. Here's the one I got (and I ordered those colorful bands on the side to mix it up for fun!)


So if you are interested in winning one, it's mandatory to be a follower of my blog and then just leave a comment below.

No matter what you do, be safe out there!!

If you want to visit Go Sport ID on Facebook - find them here.

I actually saw that one of my running buddies was wearing a Road ID this morning and I told her I was jealous! I follow your blog, and I really hope I get to win one of my own!

I was out this morning at the track. I had my cell phone on me and my car key on my shoelace, with my car in the parking lot (pocketbook) in trunk. But when it's emergency (like I pass out on the track) people don't have time to take the key off my shoe run to every Hyundai in the parking lot AND find my pocketbook nestled in the trunk. This is a FANTASTIC idea! Thanks Jen!

I love this! I also like the one that clips to your shoelace... such a clever idea.

Dena said...

Wow, that's a pretty smart idea. I have been guilty of no ID while running for sure...but right now I am also tending to stay at a track. This is an awesome idea :)

I don't think I've EVER carried ID, and I always tell myself I need to order a road ID or something--I just never do it!

That's awesome! I've just recently started running and it would be nice to have an identifier on me if something were to happen!

This is great! I would like to be entered in the giveaway!

Jessica Perfetto said...

I was thinking of getting one of these because I run on a busy street, some of my family members do not feel it is safe, but I refuse to drive somewhere to go for a run.

Lorie said...

I am a follower and this would be great when I am out running alone- most of the time!

Sara said...

I would love to win one - I'm a follower! :)

I have a tag on my shoe, but someone recently pointed out to me that if you get hit by a car - your shoe normally flies off! I didn't know this, but now I want an ID for my wrist just to be safe.

Awesome giveaway! Thanks!! :)

I definately need one of these. I don't ever wear ID - but I always bring my phone. The Sherry situation has really shaken me up!
