The perks of running with sunglasses

'Sunglasses, oohoo, to hide behind,' sang Tracy Ullman.

Wearing sunglassed during a run

I certainly like to hide behind a pair of sunglasses while I'm running. It's much better if the world can't see my longing to take a break.

Also, it gives me a pleasant sense of being invisible. So when I see some men coming towards me shouting the inevitable: 'Can't you go any faster', I can pretend I didn't hear them.

Hm, maybe I should start wearing them around the children.

Don't know the song?

Well then you're in for a treat! Because it's a cute song, with a great video and you can watch it right here:


The perks of running with sunglasses

Besides being a great way to shield your running self from the world, there are other perks when it comes to wearing sunglasses during a run.

  1. Sunglasses protect your eyes against the glare of the sun.
  2. Sunglasses protect your eyes from scary bugs that try to fly into your eyes. And that can really hurt let me tell you!
  3. Sunglasses can give you a certain 'je ne sais quoi!' Or: they make you look cute : )
But my favorite perk is still that they're great to hide behind. Just like Tracy sang.

Do you wear sunglasses during a run?

I wear sunglasses ANY time I'm outdoors. Quality sunglasses that protect the eyes from damaging rays. (AND I like to hide behind them!)

I wear sunglasses a lot when I'm out - the sun gives me bad headaches otherwise! Thanks so much for sharing over at Friday Frivolity. :)
