    I also have never had to use this stuff. At least you have found something to help. Ouch.

    I didn't either, until my long runs got into the teens.  Nothing like what Julian had to deal with though.  I would've given up running.  Smile

      I really, really, really, really, hope to be able to run long enough to have this problem again. And... Despite my age, I have some short shorts too.

          Being on the bench has a way of clearing up your perspective doesn't it!

            Absolutely. I see chafing as a blessing at the moment.

              Well, it does heal faster than most injuries.  I feel for anyone who is sidelined.

              Do you even run?

                If I wear shorter shorts (2" inseam), they ride up.  I have a tough time finding longer shorts made for ladies, so I usually wind up in the guys section buying guys 4" inseam shorts.  That's pretty long being as I am 5'1" when I stretch, but they don't ride up at all.  When I do that, I have no chafage issues and don't need body glide.

                  Well, I'm not a lady, but I can be 'girly' at times. Joking

                   

                  Personally, I think Body Glide is a big rip-off, price is way too much for what you get.  I find that by using Right Guard gel-type antiperspirant/deodorant, it works just as well as Body Glide and is also about $5 cheaper.

                  running is bad for you

                    I never needed any anti-chafe until I turned 38..... age related?  perhaps.  But it's not body fat related because that's lower now than before.

                     

                    BIG FAN of all of it - body glide, chamois butt'r, Mission products etc

                    notimeforthat


                      Blessedly never had issues with my legs....but I am religious about Chamois Buttr and the Mission body glide when I use my wetsuit in a swim.

                        I agree! However, I switched to Mission 5 Hour.
