Confessions of a Sunglass Junkie!

Disclaimer: I received a pair of Shady Rays to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

I will be the first to admit that I can be kind of picky when it comes to sunglasses.  With as much time as I spend outside and as many miles as I run, I always have a pair (or three) handy!  When I find some that I like, I have been known to but 2 or 3 pairs, just so that I always have an extra pair “just in case”.  For years, I always stuck with one brand, mainly because I could always find them at one of the Big Box stores.  This meant that if I ever had a “sunglasses disaster” and needed to get another pair on the fly, I could usually avoid a crisis!

When the option came up to try out Shady Rays, I was excited.  While I have had my favorites in the past, I have been on the lookout for something better.  After wearing the same brand for years, I wondered if there was something that would work even better for me!  Along came Shady Rays, at just the right time!  It was tough to decide on which color I wanted, but I opted for the Glacier Ice Polarized ones!  The frames are clear with a awesome blue tinted frame!  I will be honest, I was not sure how I would like the clean frames, but since I have always gone with black, blue or red sunglasses, I wanted something different.

I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone!  These glasses ROCK!


From the first time I put them on, these babies came everywhere with me!  Whether I was working an outdoor race expo, running or just exploring, my Shady Rays were always within reach!

Over the last few weeks, I have done A LOT and seen a lot of places.  This gave me the opportunity to really make sure these glasses fit MY lifestyle!  It is not surprise to anyone that knows me… I don’t like to sit still and I need to have gear that can keep up!

From Road trips to races, they never let me down!  Shady Rays are lightweight and designed to stay in place, no matter what you are doing!  Last week I took my Shady Rays with me on a 12 day road trip.  During this trip, I was running 8 half marathons.  I knew that I needed a good pair of glasses with me, as summer in the New England states can be warm and sunny.  I did grab another pair of sunglasses to have with me, “Just in case” but in the end, I only grabbed that other pair once – and that was only because I left my Shady Rays in the hotel room when we headed out at 4:30am to head to the race!  

There have been several times when I have been wearing these, that I actually forgot I had them on!  Yes, they are that lightweight and stay where they belong!  I have tried other sunglasses in the past and, while they fit well, there was always a snugness that was just a little too right, and often times after wearing them for several hours, I would end up with a headache.  There has never been any pinching or tightness with my Shady Rays – which means no headaches!

Shady Rays is also on a mission to help end hunger in America.  They are able to secure 11 meals to fight hunger through Feeding America with every order placed.   As of today, they have been able to provide over 1 million meals to those who would otherwise go with out!  Now that is a mission I can stand behind!

It was inevitable.  I have fallen in love with these glasses and just might need to order a few more pairs!  I honestly think you need to also!!  As a special perk for following me and all of my crazy adventures, you too can score yourself some Shady Rays for a great deal!  Head on over to their website and check them out!  Use discount code  “BIBRAVE” good for 50% off 2+ pairs!!

Now grab those shades and lets go for a run!! I got my 3 miles in this morning and the day is only going to get better!
