One of my favorite birthday gifts this month has been a Road ID Gift Card Caitlin had given me. Caitlin told me she loves giving practical gifts and along with the gift card I got a Bike Lock and some Clif Block Shots. Love you Caitlin!
As we all know I am an early morning runner, so I always like to stress the importance of safety while running. In the wee morning hours my shoes have a reflective strip so I can be seen by incoming traffic, I always wear white or light clothing, I run with pepper spray, and my boss, co-workers, & family know I run in the morning so if I don’t show up for work they know something is wrong.
The Road ID to me, is just another precaution I needed to take. This way if I were unconscious or unable to recall any of my information they would know who to call to get all of the answers.
I have a Penicillin Allergy that also needed to be documented. My worst fear is to be in an emergency situation where I am given a dose of penicillin, only to have a reaction and add more stress to the situation.
I thought long and hard to think of an inspiration quote to add to the bottom to keep me motivated, but the only thing that came to my mind was “I Run So I Can Eat What I Want” Which is true enough and the perfect motivation for me. 🙂
I have been running with the Road ID for about a week now and just feel safer with it on my foot. If you run alone, I would highly advise you ordering one of these bad boys yourself, you just never know when the situation will arise where you are unable to recall any of this information.
Now after I have given you my safety message of the day on running, I’m sad to say I did not run this morning. I decided resting before my races this weekend was a better option. Instead I opted for some Hip Opening Flow Yoga and now feel stretched and pumped for the weekend!
This morning I went back to good ole cereal for breakfast.
I just had to have a bowl. I have decided to make next week Cereal Free Week, so this is my last bowl before I take the plunge! I have some great ideas though and can’t wait to explore.
In my bowl this morning I had 1/2 cup Kashi H2H, 1/2 cup Kashi Honey Sunshine, 1/4 cup Cinnamon Crunch Granola, Blueberries, Strawberries and Vanilla Non-Fat Yogurt.
While I’m brainstorming fun breakfast ideas, does anyone have any good suggestions?
