'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.
- Sunglasses protect your eyes against the glare of the sun.
- Sunglasses protect your eyes from scary bugs that try to fly into your eyes. And that can really hurt let me tell you!
- 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.
