Why You Bring Identification With You

Folks when you're out and about please bring identification with you. You don't even have to be a runner, a cyclist or some kind of athlete. Just any time you're out have some kind of id in your person. Check this story out. It was on the local news today and I got a copy through email from my triathlon club.

This morning at 7am a female jogger who appeared to be the victim of a hit and run accident was discovered by a park employee. She was found on Washington Boulevard near Kobbe Avenue. The woman is in a local hospital in very serious condition.

She was not carrying identification. It is very possible that she lives within the Presidio or works here. She is described as:

·approximately 30 years of age
·thin build
·blond hair
·5'9" tall & approximately 140 pounds

She was wearing a light blue jogging top, navy blue shorts, a pink Timex watch, and white running shoes. She was carrying an orange IPOD.

If you can help identify her, please call Detective Anthony DePalma
of the United States Park Police at (415) 561-5153.

Eventually they did manage to identify her through the registration number on her iPod. Her family is now on the way to be by her side. Friends have also showed up at the hospital to check on her. Unfortunatley as of the latest update, she's still unconscious and in intensive care. Scary stuff.

When I'm out I carry my license, bank card and health insurance card with me. Just in case...


  1. Shoot! May be I should think about it.

  2. You mean you don't carry ID?
