As many of you know I collapsed at the 2010 Cleveland Marathon. What I may not have shared is that I did not have any form of identification with me. I didn't fill out the emergency information on the back of my race bib because "I live in Cleveland, it's not necessary." Little did I know how important taking those few minutes to fill out the bib would end up being. Luckily when I came to I knew who I was and where I was but that certainly doesn't make me invincible. Next time I may not be so lucky.
I have talked about getting a Road ID ever since I collapsed. My friend Joe recently ordered one and gave out a coupon code which I used to order my ID yesterday. Ever since my experience at Cleveland I have filled out the back of my bib, however I am comforted by the added safety my Road ID shoe tag will give me.
The kind people at Road ID gave me a coupon that I could pass along to all of you.
