Nether Regions…

So a club runner had an unfortunate condition during the half marathon a couple weeks ago. Her butt cheeks chaffed. Early in the race. yeah.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say most of us runners have chaffed somewhere on our bodies during a run and we know that it isn’t pleasant. I’m also going to go out on a limb and say that there are some bodily nether regions that we need to cover with the body glide, but would rather not talk about, or more importantly you don’t want to ‘taint’ your expensive stick of the slippery stuff by rubbing it directly… well… you know.

Ok, here’s what I do with my bodyglide before a long run.

I first rub it on all the non awkward and non-gross areas. Then, (and this is my awesome advice) take a wad of toilet paper, rub liberal amounts of the body glide stick on the toilet paper, then rub the toilet paper on all the awkward and gross spots. flush.

You’re welcome ;o)


  1. Know what you should have called this post?


    It gives advice on running etiquette - hence, Emily Post.

    Thanks, Emily

  2. Just what I wanted to read before coffee. Poor girl. I'd read one suggestion that said body glide is cheap. Have two sticks, one for everywhere, and one for there. And never mix them up went unsaid but clearly implied.

  3. @ GQH, ok!
    @ Keith, but how do you KNOW it's the right stick
    ? Clearly implied, but never sure. yuck.
