Body Movin’

So I didn’t understand the whole, “chafe” while you run thing up until I started to put in longer distances and now I know how horrible it is! I am a big fan of Body Glide and that is why it’s also on my 26.2 Christmas list!


They have many different types of Body Glide, and I always opt for the Original Anti-Chafe Balm. It works really well against friction and moisture and feels dry to the touch. They also have an Anti-Chafe with SPF 25 which is great in summertime for a long run.

They have a newer liquefied powder. It claims to be the same as body glide sticks because it is a cream base that keeps friction at bay.


I also like the Warm FX Anti-Pain Balm because it stays in one place and is applied easily in the “stick” form as well. It’s like a type of bengay.

You can find where to buy here, or here are some options:

Running Expo has the Anti-Chafing Stick for $4.95 (.45 oz) and $7.95 (1.3oz) they also have the Anti-Pain Stick here for the same prices as above.

Stop the chafe and keep on running!

    I have never tried this, but my longest miles have been about 12 miles and thankfully no chafing, I think. Fingers crossed!

    Thank goodness I don’t have this issue. Even during the marathon, no problems! WHEW

    I know what you mean… in regards to not knowing what it means to chafe.

    Maybe some day (when I can run further than 4 miles)…

    This stuff is AMAZING! I’ve also read that you can put it on your feet to prevent blisters—which makes sense and I think i’ll try next time I break in some shoes. I’m jealous of everyone who doesn’t know “the chafe.”

    I could’ve used that for my blisters…

    thats been one of my biggest dears about really runningrunning.

    the chafe oh GOD the chafe.

    is it REALLY as easily solved as the glide rubbage?

    I just ran my first marathon, and I chafed under both of my arms, and it took almost a week to be able to wear anything other than a tank top. My new motto? Lube EVERYTHING!

    Thanks. I never knew they had different versions.

  11. Marlene says:

    For 2 hour+ runs, this stuff is my best friend.
