Road ID giveaway!

I was lucky enough to be able to be asked to review a Road ID.  I got to pick one out and design it.  I chose the FIXX ID, which is actually the first style of Road ID ever made.  It's an engraved tag on a chain that looks a lot like the military dog tag.  I chose the "triathlete" design for the front and put my name, emergency contact information, and mantra on the back.  Faith, not fear.

I love it.  I chose it instead of the bracelet or shoe tag because I can also wear it while cycling and I don't have something else next to my Garmin on my wrist.  I also ride with an ID but I'm pretty bad about running with one, and it's easy to put this on when I'm heading out the door.

Luckily, I also get to give away a Road ID of your choice!  I'm going to make this simple - you need to be a follower & leave one comment.  Tell me what mantra you would put on your Road ID.  That's it.

For a bonus entry, you can tweet about it, but do not leave a comment for this one.  Just make sure to include @thisamazingday in your tweet and I will add those myself.  I'll choose a winner next Friday, 4/29!  Good luck!

  1. Shit, I just paid for a Road ID. With no mantra because I don't have one. Make one up for me!

  2. "Push Through" - I never had a mantra until I ran the Philly Marathon...every Mile Marker had a sign that said Push Through!

  3. "I may not be fast, I may not be first, but I will always finish."

  4. Well CLEARLY I need a Road ID since I run alone and rarely bring my cell. Sigh.

    "No Regrets."

  6. This is awesome, thank you for hosting! I have always wanted one of these...and regardless of whether I win I will certainly be entering!!

    My running Mantra would be "Hammer Down" we used it in swimming at pretty much every practice and it's stuck :)

    Your road ID is so pretty :)

  10. I am lame and always use the same mantra, but after an injury I can't help but think of it: One day you will not be able to do this, today is not that day.

  11. Road ID is a great ID. The mantra I repeat to myself most when needing to dig deep is "HTFU".

    ReplyDelete
  12. In dire want of a new RoadID, can't leave home without it. "I Can Do All Things!"

    ReplyDelete
  13. extra for squirrelhead, jimvanbe

  14. I have yet to come up with a good mantra. I want to like "Be Bold." but it just doesn't do anything for me! Open to suggestions :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. mine would say "Stay Calm, Be Strong!"

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have multiple road ids (each pair of running shoes and a bracelet for when I travel), but I'd like to get one for my son so his food allergy would be known.

    If I were putting a mantra on mine, I'd choose between:

    I can do anything for a mile.
    or
    They will run and not grow weary. (Isaiah 40:31)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I wonder if "May the Force be with you" would fit on a Road ID... hmmm :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. "You can quit and no one will care, but you will always know!"

    ReplyDelete
  19. extra mariaWJ, atomickandi, stellar_zee, heyinky

  20. My mantra is "Kaaaaaaatiiiieeeeee". Does that count?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've been wanting one of these forever! My mantra is "Finish Strong"

    ReplyDelete
  22. My mantra would be "Breathe. Smile. Run. Repeat."

    ReplyDelete
  23. It sucks because it is a marketing line, but I often use 'Impossible is nothing'. I have others for different terrain, but that's the all-rounder... I also use Dig Deep, as Kandi has here.

    ReplyDelete
  24. "just breathe".... or booooooobs :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. "You don't own busy." Just a reminder that there's no excuse for not getting out there and getting your workout on.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great quote choice :) Simple, and motivating.

    I'm bad about running w/ my ID too - between the Garmin, Ipod, Camelback and keys, I feel overloaded. Priorities are a little off, obviously. I'd have to think about the quote...maybe "Do one thing a day that scares you" - because I can't get over how awesome that idea is. ;)

  27. extra danielle, john senger,

  28. So fun! I have the kind that is velcro under your shoelaces. I think a dogtag would annoy me...? But then I'd look a lot more bad ass. So I guess that's a fair trade off :) I don't know what my mantra would say. I always liked, "GIT UP ON THAT HORSE!" that an old running coach used to say to me. So I'd go with that.

    ReplyDelete
  29. "long and strong" (this is a carryover from my rowing days and usually devolves into yelling at my legs, but hey)

    ReplyDelete
  30. new follower!! I would love to have a roadid! woo hoo! i think i would have it say something like "strong and confident"

    ReplyDelete
  31. i am a follower and i would probably go with I Run Because...I Can

    ReplyDelete
  32. After a year long ITB injury, my mantra is "Stong gluts, little steps." I must have said those words to myself thousands of times. I am finally back to very slow running. But I have learned to embrace the pace, no matter how slow. On second thought, maybe I should use "embrace the pace."

    ReplyDelete
  33. Awesome giveaway! I would have mine say "Run like a girl!" because, well, I'm a girl and that phrase makes fun of all those stupid stereotypes women have overcome. It empowers me!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm a new follower (and I put this on my blog - http://dailyvitaminf.blogspot.com/2011/04/total-giveaway-tuesday-11.html)

    I'd put - NEVER GIVE UP - on it

    ReplyDelete
  35. i'd put: "just keep chuggin'" . . .i think that is how i feel about most of my long workouts :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. "If it was easy, everyone would be doing it."

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'd want the same mantra on my Road ID as I have on my foot. "Believe"

    ReplyDelete
  38. I always say I don't have a mantra, but when I'm really feeling it in a race, I always tell myself "You worked hard for this." Just a little reminder that I wanted to be here and don't fuck it up now.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great giveaway! I would love a Road Id! (I'm even gonna try for that bonus entry!)

    Not sure I have a defined mantra, per se, but when I'm in a tough training spot I always thing of that old school P.O.D. song and the lyrics, "Is that all you got? Take your best shot."

    Hope I win!

  40. Road ID sounds great. For my mantra I use the words my husband had inscribed on the iPod shuffle he gave me as a surprise last year:
    "Run Like Hell"

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oooh, forgot one I used in London the other week: "Never underestimate the power of 1-2-3-4". Well, worked for me. Kind of.

    ReplyDelete
  42. hesitant to enter cuz I don't really have a mantra...but dang I want a Road ID!! so, maybe "just a little further".

    I also really like to count when I run/bike, so I thought for a bit about "59...58...57" ... which is probably related to when I first started working out ever, and I told myself I could do anything for 5 minutes. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi! I am excited to be a new follower! I would love a road id because my husband always is worried about me running alone. I would put "UNSTOPPABLE" for my mantra.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm a follower. My mantra is "keep going, you can do anything!"

    ReplyDelete
  45. My mantra: "Suck it up"
