Do any of you runners use body glide? If so, where the heck do you put it? I have been ramping up the mileage in my long runs and I don’t want to wait until I have my first bad chaffing experience to figure out where I need it. My running group said to use it but they don’t really give you the nitty gritty on where to put the darn stuff!

In my experience, everybody chaffs in different places. I have friends who put it under their arms, but I’ve never had issues there. I use it on my thighs and just recently have had to put it on right below my belly button(?) Weird, I know, but for some reason, it’s getting rubbed raw.

I didn’t know about body glide. I actually started to use a Dr. Scholl’s anti-blister stick for similar purposes. I bet they’re the same ingredients. The band on my front-zippered sports bra was starting to cut into my ribs up front. And the blister stick stopped it!

I use it on my thighs when I want to wear shorts. I absolutely love this stuff.

@clane616: Yes, yes, yes. I swear by it. Inside my thighs and (sorry) under the girls.

I use it on my inner thighs, under my boobs where the bottom of my sports bra sits, and on long runs I use it on the inside of my upper arm where it rubs against one of my tank tops.

@mrstilly: I’m the same. It’s gotta go on the thighs and under the sports bra. Those are the only places I’ve ever rubbed.

I use it basically everywhere my sports bra touches, including my armpits/inside upper arms, plus wherever my legs rub against each other.
Also, instead of Body Glide, I use Queen Helene Cocoa Butter. Super cheap (huge tub of it for like $5), smells awesome, and works exactly the same.
