Protect your Peeps Runners! And by peeps I mean your beautiful eyes!
Shielding your eyes from the sun will not only protect them from harmful UVB and UVA rays, but it will prevent you from squinting and furrowing up your face. This allows you to avoid creating extra tension in your body.
Want to run more relaxed? Try the following:
- Keep your shoulders back and down.
- Let your arms hang loose.
- Forearms should be relax and parallel to the ground.
- Fists should be kept unclenched.
- Soften your face.
- Jaw is loose.
- Don’t furrow your brow.
- NO SQUINTING!
Dang that’s a lot to remember all at once. But if you do all those things, you will run more calmly and comfortably. Learning to run relaxed is an important component of becoming a better, faster and stronger runner. You don’t want your performance to suffer because you’re all tense. So relax…
And you can start with your eyes! I never run without sunglasses. I love the XX2i series. Here you can see I’m wearing the Australia1 for the Dam to Dam last weekend. It was definitely a hot sun that weekend!
As a BibRavePro, I was given a pair of XX2i Bahamas1 to try out and they are perfect for my trail.
They are super-light and I can wear them when I’m running and when I’m not! The Bahamas1 have polarized lenses and they offer 100% UVA and UVB protection. All XX2i offer a lifetime guarantee, so if you scratch or break them, just pay shipping and handling to get them replaced.

- 100% UVA and UVB Protection.
- 365 return day policy
