Sun glasses can’t make you run faster, but they can benefit a runner in other ways.
Not only do they protect against UV rays, they act as a guard to the elements and shield ones emotions from the people driving by. They are my protection from the big wide world while I’m out there exposed; the only guard I have when running all alone.
My Keanon’s have proven to be a good addition to the gear goodies. They don’t look like typical running glasses, like those Oakley’s, all narrow and alien shaped. They are big and square with polarized lenses to reduce the glare. The best part is that they haven’t fogged up; a killer to a fun run on a pretty sunny day.
If you aren’t running in glasses, you should be.
