Seems like an obvious thing to say, but you do need to be able to see when running or walking for that matter. So when running yesterday it was fun to guess where I was as my glasses bounced up and down in front of my eyes.
At first it was amusing but as time went on and a little bit of perspiration gathered on my nose, the bouncing glasses were also slipping down.
I have often wondered about people who have 'glasses bands', often seen on rather trendy surfer types, I am neither of these. But I can now see the practicality of them.
Being able to anchor glasses to my head and not have to battle with an ever moving world will be a bonus.
Good news the online price of a band was under £5 including delivery....I am hopeful that despite the very reasonable price it will still do the job - report to follow.
On a separate note, I have heard, on the grapevine, that entry for next years VLM closed with 457, 861 entries and as they only allow around 40,000 runners my odds of a place are still slim.
This journey is not all about VLM, which is very daunting, I will continue now to just take each day as it comes and 1small-step forward.
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
