of course i'm going to jump on the body glide bandwagon and reiterate how awesome it is. it's not greasy at all, and is really easy to apply.

as for the blisters, i started wearing a thin pair of cheap cotton socks over my usual running socks, and it has really helped! i guess it makes it so the socks rub against each other instead of your feet. i also use some first aid tape that is stretchy and flexible, and it stays put really well for me.

I love Body Glide - it really works for chafing. To prevent rubbing problems with my toes, I use Gentle Paper tape. It's thin and stays put while running.

I'm experiencing chafing on my longer walks (arms where it rubs against side of sportsbra and other places) and wondered what you guys are doing for it.

i've started wearing tees instead of tanks and that's helping with the arm rubs. i heard about body glide?? and other stuff you rub on to prevent chafing.

does anyone have experience with those things and do they really work? what if anything are you doing to prevent this.

what about blisters?...have you found a particular brand or kind of bandage that holds up well on long walks/runs?

thanks, debbie emoticon
