I was struggling with some bad nipple chafing so I started applying Vaseline before runs. Now my nipples are doing great and all running shirts have these super discreet stains! [R]

Just get some 3M Transpore Tape. Several of the commercial nipple protection products out there are just bits of that tape. I've used it for years. As long as you apply it when your skin is dry it's not going anywhere and provides the needed barrier.

What am I forgetting? First 50 preparation [R]

I have my first 50 mile race on April 29th and want to make sure I have everything I'll need for this new, longer distance.

The weather forecast looks like low 50s with some rain showers.

Stuff I'm bringing:

  • Shirt, shorts
  • 2x shoes, socks
  • 2x hair tie
  • Running raincoat (don't plan on using)
  • Running belt /w extra bottles
  • Tailwind in plastic baggies (150 cal each) x 24
  • Bodyglide
  • Bandaids for man-nips? Any recommendations?
  • Something for fixing blisters? Never worried about it before so recommendations are appreciated!

Is there anything else I'm forgetting? Sun should be up when race starts at 6:00 a.m.

For feet prep: I just use sweatblocker a day or two before. Rinse it off, dry your feet, then apply leuokotape where you traditionally hotspot during training. Then wear injinji's. I've done this for so many races, and never had blisters -- even with 100 milers in downpouring conditions. I never change socks as well.

As far as nips: https://www.amazon.com/3M-Transpore-Clear-1-Inch-10-Yard/dp/B005OFM6JE/ref=sr113?ie=UTF8&qid=1492777051&sr=8-13 (stays on much better than band aids, and can also be used as part of a medical kit)

They were never a problem for me until I ran my first half. The shower after was extremely painful! Now I just throw on some of this transpore tape for anything that might go over 10. You can get it at any drug store for a few bucks and at an inch or two per nipple it lasts forever. As long as I remember to throw on the tape I have no issues whatsoever.

I've been using these Bandaid clear spots but they are SOOO sticky its a pain and painful to peel them off. Still better than having my nips rubbed raw but I was hoping somebody has a better alternative. My neighbor recommended using regular bandaids but I have a hairy chest and it would look pretty weird if I shaved a circle around my nips. Any help?

This is the best tape I have found. Works incredibly well. Seems to be harder to take off the longer it stays on


I can't wear flats! [R]

3 years, 1 month agoHeloisePommefume posted submission on TheGirlSurvivalGuide.
March 31, 2016

Hey guys,

This has been getting more and more annoying as its been getting warmer - but I can't wear flats! Every time I do, the back cuts my heel all up within thirty minutes of walking in them. Bandaids, those gel pad things, nothing seems to help. I've tried getting different flats (like sixty dollar comfier ones) but they do the same thing.

I'm a size 9 and I don't like wearing open toed shoes because of it - so I basically can't wear skirts or dresses without heels. Which is annoying in itself if I'm going casual. Also annoying because I'm 5'7 and 110 lbs so everyone always loses their shit about how 'skinny I am', esp. at formal family events.

What do I do? Alternatives to flats? How do I get around the skin stripping hell that is flats?

Same problem. I always used bandaids, even though they never really stayed well or provided much protection. But it was better than nothing, and I hate tennis shoes. Then one day I ran out and in desperation used medical tape like this. After you put it on you have to give it a minute to adhere before you put your shoes on, but it works wonders and I buy it in bulk now.

Umm...how do I stop my nipples from bleeding...(asking for a friend)? [R]

3M Transpore medical tape. Amazon

If you need to improve the stickiness, buy pre-tape spray. Amazon

The transpore tape is extremely sticky. Its used in hospitals to keep IV's from falling out and etc. Its one of the only things that will stay on. I've been using it for years.

Chafing? [R]

3 years, 3 months agopwlim posted submission on running.
Feb. 7, 2016

Looking for some tips/tricks. I'm training for my first marathon and my last long run was 14 miles. The problem I'm running into is nipple chafing. While it was only annoying during the run, afterwards while showering the combination of soap and water felt like someone was using a blowtorch to remove my nipples. A rather unpleasant sensation I'd rather not duplicate if at all possible.

Either a compression shirt or transpore tape. It is cheap, stays on through all of the sweat, and easy to remove. Also, it's incredibly cheap!

Olive oil helps get the tape off without hurting them as much. Also recommend using something other than duct tape if that is what you are using. best stuff I found was the 3m Clear Transpor tape. It still allows breathing.

I am so excited about your post. I was looking into UV meters for the same purpose today, came across the same science buddies experiment and wasn't that excited about the linked UV meter which seems to be made more for kinds science fairs and doesn't measure in decimal units. I will definitely give the one you described a try, as I would also trust a japanese government approved one over a no-name one. I looked into sunscreen testing a bit more this afternoon and came across this article which describes that surgical tape (on amazon for <5$) is a good model for human skin in sunscreen UV testing. I'll order the meter and give this a try.

Adhesive on nipples? [R]

New runner here.

I have been lurking around this subreddit for a while now, and many people are talking about putting adhesive and wax on their nipples to prevent chafing? What chaffes your nipples? How? Why do people do this? I have been confused why people do this, can someone please fill me in.

EDIT: I am a guy, does the same thing happen to guys?

What you want is some variant of 3m transpore tape. Several brands sell nip specific things like nipeaze, nipguards etc, but all those are just expensive pre-cut version of transpore tape, Buy a couple rolls and just cut squares off stick it on.

I was using nipeaze for a long time before I figured this out, obviously the rolled kind is WAAAAAY cheaper and does the job just fine.

Protip: when you take it off, do it in the shower.

Using tape to tuck? [R]

March 30, 2015

Yeah yeah another tucking question. So I got the tape more or less down in that the "girls" stay up with tape around the shaft. Does anyone also tape back the main attraction? I assume this will create a better flatter front in one's panties. Also if you do tape it can you still pee? Also is it dangerous to keep the girls taped up there? I mean its not like I want them anyway. Thanks

This is what I use. I also tried durapore tape but it barely sticks. Transpore tape feels like it could rip a limb off if needed in comparison.

I'd love some tips/tricks of the trade. I just bought my ticket for weekend deux (YAY) but I want to make sure I'm well prepared. I'm already too late for lockers (sold out) and I was hoping some of you might have some wisdom to share?

So far my list just says: WATER. I'd appreciate your guy's help! Thanks!

edit: thanks for all the input so far, it's so valuable coming from people who've actually gone through it rather than the huffington post. I just want to go and listen to music and dance around!

I saw OHT mention this in his (ancient) Chun-Li legs tutorial that a billiards glove is good for slide inputs (and to prevent cutting up your fingers).
Does anyone else have experience with any gloves?

Get surgical tape and tape it on, problem solved. I used to run long distance and had this problem because of cotton t shirts+ sweat.


You can also get it at a local pharmacy
