5 best running glasses

5 best running glasses | Physical and Mental Health - Exercise, Fitness and Activity | Scoop.it
We all know that running is good for your body (save maybe your knees), but sometimes we need a little extra protection against the many and varied elements. Whether it's rain, sun, wind or dust – or a truly British combination of the above – a good pair of glasses is a must for frequent runners.
Peter Mellow's insight:

Well I don't know about the 'best' but these are obviously five pairs of glasses that the writer was supplied with or tested. There are lots of great glasses for running out there. I have a pair that look good, are light and comfortable that I picked up for $20 from a service station. Yes Oakley's are nice, but a quarter of a thousand dollars? Worth it?

"The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment." In a talk equal parts eloquent and devastating, writer Andrew Solomon takes you to the darkest corners of his mind during the years he battled depression.
