The New Goodr Bike Sunglasses – Product Review

The New Goodr Bike Sunglasses – Product Review

I have a ridiculously huge collection of Goodr brand sunglasses. I can’t help myself. They are cheap ($25) and have SO MANY COLORS! And I am an Ambassador, so I get some perks here and there.

When the new Super Fly bike style glasses were introduced, I thought, “I don’t bike. And that retro style would look goofy on me.” But my wife bikes, so I thought, what the heck, I might as well get them and if I hate them, she can have them. We “share” all of my … er … our … Goodr glasses anyway. 

A few days later, a package from Carl the Flamingo showed up. I hastily opened the box and tried on the new shades. I didn’t hate them! In fact, they look good! I like them a lot. Jen wanted to try them on, since she is the biker. “I think they are too big for my face”. “Oh yes, much too big,” I reassured her as I stashed them next to the door to put/leave in my truck. 

These new Super Flys are lightweight and comfortable. Even lighter feeling than regular Goodrs. I didn’t weigh them, or look up any info to prove it, since I am lazy, so take it with a grain of salt. 

If you were on the fence about the new style, give them a shot. I am happily surprised and now need to get all of the new colors in this style.

Running Sunglasses Review – Run good, look goodr

I am always losing my running sunglasses. Or they fall off my face mid-run and I come close to making an acrobatic catch, tipping them in the air, but never securing them, only to have them crash to the ground, leaving a scratched lens that will drive me nuts every time I wear them thereafter. Replacing my running sunglasses has become a neverending circle. I buy a new pair at each marathon expo that I attend, usually spending around $30 for some “cheap” glasses. The glasses I usually choose are sleek and lightweight. And boring. (more…)

Who Needs Daylight? Running Dad’s Guide to Night Running Gear


When you are a running dad or mom, you understand the challenges of finding time to run. Days, you are stuck at work. Evenings are usually taken over by soccer, swimming, basketball, or baseball practices for the kid(s). That leaves late at night or early in the mornings to shoehorn your runs in. Time, daylight, and sanity are at a premium. Running can help get that third one back, to a degree. (more…)
