Thank you. I can always count on sparkers for good advice.

The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.

I've used moleskin before without too much problem for blisters. Make sure to cut just enough to cover the area. I can see if it's the thicker kind, it might feel odd or be too bulky for the arch area, though.

One of the best and cheapest things I found is the plain white athletic tape. Press it on good and it will last 2 or 3 days. Even in the shower. Best of luck, Konrad

Does anyone have experience with these products?

I want to protect my arch that was irritated by my orthotic where the covering had worn off. They’ve been recovered but until they are thoroughly broken in, I want some extra protection.

Short runs seem OK, but I don’t want a setback. 2 weeks until my HM.
