Happens to me all the time, so I just make sure to wear spandex when I run

I found a body powder at Meijer called Monkey Butt. Bought it because it had a funny name and anything with such a funny name has to work! Seems to work just fine. I wonder how well it'll work now that the weather is starting to hit in the mid 80's???

I have this problem and I bought some tight-fitting compression shorts to wear under my normal workout clothes. They don't "ride up" and they keep my skin-rubbing-on-skin thing from happening.

Katie,

You're perfectly normal. This happens to a lot of runners. One thing you might consider is investing in a tube of Body Glide. Many runners use it to prevent chaffing. You can find it at CVS or any good sports store.

I don't know a single person, fat or thin, whose thighs DON'T chafe while running.

Hopefully that makes you feel better. Bodyglide is your friend.

keep calm
and
keep working out

:)

what's your alternative?

maybe they're getting smaller, and the looser fit is causing chafing... maybe it's the change in the weather...

The past 2 times I've worn my running shorts to run/ workout I've noticed chaffing in the inner thigh/ groin area. Does this mean my thighs are getting bigger? I'm a little frustrated!
