|Having the Right Accouterments are Essential to Marathon Running|
“Life’s a marathon – you can’t win a marathon without putting some Band-Aids on your nipples" is the most memorable line from Horrible Bosses, the funniest movie I have seen since The Hangover 2. If you are male and have trained for a marathon you will understand why. Unless you have man-boobs which wiggle around as you run, or you have proclivities for wearing bras, you basically have two choices in avoiding painful nipple chafing and even bleeding– applying globs of Vaseline petroleum jelly or Band-Aids to your man-tits. I find the Band-Aids uncomfortable so I stick to the petroleum jelly. There are other places on your body that you also need to apply Vaseline to prevent abrasion and chafing, but I will leave that to your imagination. I must admit, I have the utmost amount of respect for chafing and have no qualms about going up to the cash register in the pharmacy with just a large tub of Vaseline or travelling with my supply. As titillating and slightly greasy as this subject may seem, minimizing friction when running is serious stuff. I have been known to scream like a girl in the shower after a long run because I forgot to apply my Vaseline, and was even once seen in Garry Moore’s Wide Awake Bar in Montserrat with a blood spots on my white T-shirt. Good thing Gary is always asleep or else he might have thrown me out of the bar – well probably not because then he would not have a DJ. Well enough talk about nipple burn and Vaseline – people reading this for the first time might get the wrong idea about this blog. This blog entry is supposed to be about my build up to running the Kilimanjaro Marathon in Tanzanian for charity in a few weeks.
