Product Review: Goodr Running Sunglasses

Being a high school and college distance runner and now Ironman athlete I have run a lot of miles in the hot bright sun and even winter sun reflecting off the snow (so bright)!  Sadly when I was young I rarely wore sunglasses when I was running. While visiting the eye doctor after college I learned I had developed Pinguecula in my eyes from sun damage.  Pingueculae are non-cancerous bumps on the eyeball usually caused from ultraviolet radiation from the sun, wind, dust and dry air.  Growing up in a dessert area in Colorado probably didn’t help. Luckily the pingueculae did not grow over my cornea’s so I was still able to have Lasik some time ago.  Since I have learned about them, I make it a point to always wear sunglasses when I workout outside and drive.  I always suggest sunglasses to other runners and triathletes in my classes and clinics.  I was excited to see these fun and affordable Goodr running sunglasses at a local shop and had to check them out.  I am a big fan of polarized lenses because you can see better with them. The lens have UV400 protection and the frames have grip coating.  They are super light-weight at 22 grams, so won’t bounce around when you run.  These classic black ones are perfect and I kinda think I look cool (gotta be a cool Mom when I drop off or pick up my kids from school right?).  The name of this color/style is Whiskey Shots from Satan with Amber lens.  Doesn’t that just fit the Mom vibe LOL 😉 The affordability sure does!   I just love that they are all under $30.  They have lot of fun other prints too.  Check them out and get yourself a pair:  https://www.playgoodr.com/

Happy Running,
