Happy Friday Friends! Hopefully by now I am on a plane, jetting off for the weekend. Yep, a birthday weekend getaway, stand by that is. Should be good fun thanks to this girl!
But before I go, I have to talk about something, something near and dear to my heart. You see, as pro triathlete’s wife, I still worry about my husband’s safety during his training. I worry about him on long rides, without a phone, and getting stuck/injured/etc. I think it comes with the territory, right?
Well, all that worrying doesn’t have to happen if we invest in the right tools. We recently signed up with ICEdot. What’s icedot?
It’s the perfect accessory for ANY athlete.
“ an emergency ID & notification service designed for athletes, children and people on the go. Your membership PIN will be linked to a personal online account with your identification, medical info (if you have any) and emergency contacts. This info can be accessed by any first responder with a cell phone. That might be a fellow runner on the trail or a trained paramedic; you never know. Be Known for you, not for what happened to you.”
Yep, an emergency notification system designed for ANY and EVERY type of athlete.
But what I also love about ICEdot is the community. Such a great support group. Fellow athlete’s can blog and talk not only about safety, but hydration tips, new routes, race day strategies, and more.
I cannot tell you how much I love ICEdot, especially when the hubs is out training. It gives me a peace of mind knowing that he’s training as safe as possible.
Icedot wants to share their unique safety accessories with others. They’ve graciously offered a free ICEdot wrist band and profile registration to one reader.

Tell me how you practice safe training. Do you run with a buddy, ID, etc.?
Contest will run through next Wednesday, Aug 1st.
As much as we love to train hard, explore, and spice up our training routine… SAFETY COMES FIRST!!! Be prepared, train smart, BE KNOWN!
Cheers and Safe training,
