Boston Bill Sports Sunglasses - 12 Days of Christmas Day 8 #giveaway

One of the first anonymous comments I received on this blog was "do you ever take a photo without sunglasses". The answer is no, unless it is at night. I don't wear sunglasses at night. This has nothing to do with taking a photo, I am very sensitive to sunlight,which became more severe after getting Lasik two years ago. I cannot leave my house without sunglasses (usually more than one pair!).

With that said, up until recently, I never owned a pair of sports sunglasses. I usually wore my rayban aviators which slid on my face but never bothered my ears. The longer the distance, the bigger pain A the sunglasses became and I would consistently have to preposition them. I never tried sports sunglasses because I ignorantly assumed that they would bother my ears, as all plastic frames seem to do.

Then I tried Boston Bill Sunglasses, suggested to me by a fellow marathon runner who swore by the product. I wore my Boston Bill Sunglasses through the entire ING New York City Marathon without once realizing they were on my face. I was amazed to say the least and these glasses didn't come off of my head until I received my medal.
A few weeks later, I wore my Boston Bill Sunglasses to the Womens Running Series Half Marathon. Weather conditions were much warmer in FL than NY but I did not have issues with fogging. I couldn't believe it. Again, I wore the glasses without removing once in 13.1 miles.
The model I own is the Boston Bill Classy Sport, a pair of frames that are ultra flexible. I couldn't break these bad boys if I wanted to. I became a life fan of Boston Bill in the month of November and I am hoping to make you familiar with their brand.

  4. I wear the same sunglasses I normally wear when I do my walk/jogs. They are TERRIBLE--constantly slipping down my face. I never looked into getting a pair of sunglasses specific to sports. Duh! I bet they won't pull on the backs of my ears either.
