I was running The Boston Marathon in 2013. My husband was spectating. We were both wearing Road ID. Long story short... my husband was injured in the explosion at the Forum restaurant. I was running and stopped just short of Herferd Street when police closed the course. The hospital used my husband's Road ID to reach family and eventually me when I was able to get to my bag/phone. I used my Road IDto call family and friends whose numbers I don't have memorized when I didn't have my phone and was borrowing from other runners. Road ID played a huge role in sorting through the chaos of the day for us.
