>General Running>Cotton t-shirt for marathon
Good luck to you!
Whew! It rained the whole time. Everyone was soaked. Glad I went with my tried and true tech shirt.
So, how'd the race go for you?
I haven't tryed and tech shirts yet. I have been in cotton tshirts 99% of the time. Once in a while I will wear some thermal long sleeve shirt. That is probably cotton too I dunno. On marathon and 1/2 marathon I get sore nips but no bad chafing or anything worse.

Marathon felt good! I was somewhat undertrained, so planned to jog it, and felt peppy through most of it. Finished in 4:12, which is #3 out of 6 for time. Even with tech gear and a vat of body glide, I have a line of chafing around my waist from my shorts, and small "v" of chafing on my sternum from the running bra. I think had I worn cotton, I would have been quite cold.
Nice work! I'm glad you did well!
