There’s a couple of resolutions I’m trying to keep.
1. Get serious about training for this December’s Honolulu Marathon.
2. Wear sunglasses when out paddling.
Seven days into the new year, so far, so good. I signed up online for the kamaaina rate and bought new running shoes.
AND I bought a pair of polarized water sports glasses. This after a scolding Wednesday from one of my canoe sisters as we paddled off into the glare of the morning sun.
Naish Hawaii in Kailua (naish.com) sells these sunglasses more as an accessory for that which made them famous: windsurfing and kiteboarding. Still, when one of the clerks mentioned that he had worn the sport glasses during last year’s Molokai Hoe, that they had stayed on while making a water change, and that they really cut the glare while he was steering, I was sold.
Polarized, with full UVA/UVB protection, the glasses will float if they get dropped in the water — something my late watch did not — and have soft rubber cushions around the ear and nose areas. The strap is easily adjustable and makes for comfortable wearing.
Not that style is a concern but they are a somewhat rad, with a design that eliminates fogging. Available in black, copper and gun-metal gray for $35.
