Running with sunglasses…no thanks!

Blogathon post 28/30

In my post yesterday I mentioned how meticulous I am about what I wear for running. A comment by Lauren from “On The Run” made me smile. She said she laughed because we are so similar with our running but then there are so many things where we are the complete opposite,

She wears anything and doesn’t really care so much about the details. Except for sunglasses… There she is meticulous. Funny enough, this is the one thing I never wear when running.

I once tried running with sunglasses back in 1998 and hated it. I wore sunglasses in a 32km (20 mile) race in 1998. That was the only time I ever tried running with it and never ever again. It is just such a huge nuisance. I’m a sweaty, wet, muddy mess when I run. Sunglasses are just in the way.

I have these two gem photos to prove that at least I did try it.

Have a great weekend everyone!

That's so funny Johann! After I typed my comment, I thought that I have never seen a picture of you in sunglasses. Sunglasses are the only one thing I will turnaround the car and drive back home for. Even if it's not sunny out, I find them a useful defense against the gnats. :) Happy Trails!

I have to wear glasses because I'm basically blind without them. They've got transition lenses so every time I run I'm wearing sunglasses without even thinking about it.
