    I just started using these on long runs. They are great, nice and soft, well adherent, but come off easily when I am done. They are kinda spongy.


    Needs more cowbell!

      Ooh, neat--do you use those like moleskin on blisters, or on cuts like a regular bandaid?

        All the above, but mostly to protect against a problem common to guys. Did I mention, they don't stick to chest hair? Wink

          Nice call on the sport strips! Cool Also, I meant to mention in my "big blister" forum topic that I ended up using some Band-Aid brand blister bandages. They worked awesome! However, they DO NOT come off easily (that's kinda the point) so don't put them on your chest area.... Wink (Not to plug the Band-aid brand.. I'm sure there are some generics that work well too).

            Oh, I had never heard about that phenomenon until backroadrunner ran the 5/3 25k race a month ago. I thought her hubby was being a smartass when he was talking about guys with bloody nipples. Lucky for us girls our bras help control the friction issues. k

              It can be bad news. A buddy of mine had troubles the other day during a 5 miler. It usually takes me at least 15-20 miles. Big grin

                Here is a link for NipGuards, a product specifically designed for this problem. I have not used them, but hear they work great. http://www.nipguards.com/ Bodyglide also works quite well. ...for those who are not familiar with the "problem", look at the photos....blood wicking down the front of your technical tee! Not a good thing! Aloha, Lynn B

                  I've seen that on one of my club member's white technical shirt. The blood doesn't seem to come out. Either that, or he didn't bother to wash it. Either way, it's pretty gross! ciao!

                    Wow.. time to get a new t-shirt. Dead I've heard that called the "double-barreled shot-gun" Big grin

                      Some guys seem to take things like that as a badge of pride. He may be wearing it like that to remind him of how tough he is and how much he suffered on that run... Not my style, but I've seen stranger things.

                        Do you want to share them with the class? Big grin
                          I think we should make an "I've seen stranger things" thread in the off-topic forum instead... Meet you all there! Janell

                            I'll try these. The cloth 'flex-strips' just fall off. Ouch!!! Cry ONON! Marc

                              Is it wrong of me that the name "NipGuards" just makes me giggle like a wee girl?

                                They work really well (nipguards). A bit pricey if you run enough to use them often, but better than the alternative. Ken
