2Toms sent me an email to ask me if I had a chaffing problem, which is kind of a personal question, don't you think?
I also got an email a while ago asking me to try out some really strong laundry detergent for my running clothes, and I wanted to write back: are you trying to tell me something? But I digress.
Actually, I do have one spot on my body that gets into trouble on long runs, and that is under the bottom band of my sports bra. It looks and feels like a terrible, red rug burn and it hurts like hell especially when the shower hits it after the run; it always heals just in time to go for another long run, at which point, it turns into an even worse strip of red burny skin. Lovely, huh? So I told 2Toms that I would love to try out an anti-chafing product.
But the ridiculous thing is that I had never gone out to buy any anti-chafing products before. I had used one free sample of a kind of thick cream product that I got on the Vermont marathon expo, but otherwise, I just sort of suffered through the chafing for no real explainable reason.
Maybe I was just waiting for someone to send me some. Now I apply some of this Sport Shield onto my trouble zone before a long run. It's a liquid product that goes on with a roll-on, like deodorant. Very easy, and super effective. I have no new chafing marks or tenderness. Success!
My review may not totally be fair because I don't have a lot to compare this to, but it worked, it was easy, it smelled normal. I give it two thumbs up. Locals, you can buy it at Epic Sports in Bangor. You can also order online. Thanks, 2Toms!
