Bodyglide works great for me. On longer runs I use it in combination with compression shorts.

I’ve ended up turning my thighs and underarms into hamburger meat in a marathon before. Bodyglide is a great product, but compression shorts and a tight fitting, sleeved t-shirt are the things that will save you after it wears off.

With the performance fabrics of shorts and shirts these days, they are often themselves a source of chafing… anyone see The Office (Episode 401, “Fun Run”) last week? ;-)

Anyway, BodyGlide on the nips is a life saver!

Boudreaux’s butt paste! I ran for years. I ran as much as 13 miles a day. Was in the military and did many of days in the field too.This stuff works!
