Many runners (maybe you?) don’t run with any identification. You might have your phone with you…but what would happen if all of a sudden there was an emergency and you were hit by a car, or fell and passed out? Hopefully this will never happen, but you can never be too prepared. There are several companies that make thin rubber wristbands that you can get customized to have a placard with your emergency information. Or you could buy a shoe pouch that attaches to your laces with a pocket to hold a key and a tag with your information. No matter your preference, make sure you leave the house with some form of ID. Your loved ones will thank you!
