It’s a Gorgeous Friday everyone, and if you were wondering what was that icon posted last week, it’s no road sign but a logo of a company that has “YOU” in mind, yes, you the one reading this, and this company is called RoadID.
Before I go any further let me tell you what RoadID is all about, This Company was founded by a father-and-son team and they are none other than Edward and Mike Wimmer. They have been providing safety gear to help keep you safer since 1999, and I am glad they did so. This so called bracelets are like guardian angels, no kidding. With all the unfortunate recent death of Marathoners like Claire Squires in the recent London Marathon , Jeffrey Lee for the Philadelphia Half Marathon , or even Firefighter William Caviness in the Chicago Marathon.
Those people I have mention are not old or unhealthy, they are young and even triathletes at their peak of their health, just saying that we are not bullet proof even if we are at our pink of health. I am trying to say that those death are at a high profile event, given the scenario that we are training alone running 5 am in the morning (which is a fav of mine) and I fall flat to the ground. I would have this ID tag on me telling anyone that finds me all my vital info.
I have been using RoadID since a couple of years back and it has not faded on me nor smelled on me. Why do I talk about RoadID? Cause I truly believe in a product that is for safety and has athletes in mind, but come to think of it, RoadID are not only for athletes but can also be used for everyone including your family members, This little nifty product is a bracelet that carries all the vital information for anyone in an emergency situation, and not only they have bracelet form they now come in 6 different types of design for you to choose from depending where you want to place your ID from wrist, necklace, ankle to even your shoe.
I have the wrist ID Sport on me and it goes where ever I go, I don’t only use it for sport but I use it as a fashion bracelet as well, who knows I might just drop dead when there is a pretty girl that come asking for my number. LOL See it still looks new to me.
Anyway since it’s a FRIDAY , I am gonna be doing a “GIVE AWAY FRIDAY “ I will be giving away Gift certificate worth $15 each to 2 lucky readers courtesy of RoadID.

I know this is too late for most Ultra runners to know, but just to give you the low down on this remarkable event that is taking place. This would be to me be rated as one of the top crazy running events, because of the mileage coverage over the period of 5 days. this event is called the “Special Forces 200KM” will be held on from 28th April to 2nd May 2012.
Ok maybe not that gruesome because of the divided mileage over the 5 days. Still in total you would have been running for 200km, thats more than Leadvill100.
This is Malaysia’s first 200km staged extreme ultra marathon.
