Chafing is an ugly word that most runners hate. It is an injury that heals quickly, but can leave ugly reminders. My chafing story is a rocky and painful one. I have skin that is sensitive to weather changes and without a skin protectant I chafe when I run over 3 miles. My typical go to for skin protectant is Vaseline. While it works well, it can leave greasy residue on clothes. When the opportunity to try the 2Toms Sport Shield (http://www.2toms.com/) presented itself I was on the fence. So how did this product fare for protecting my skin?
The product comes in a easy to apply roller applicator that resembles deodorant. The applicator allowed large coverage of the product on my skin without getting it my hands. While I was glistening, it didn't stain or ruin my clothes. The product is non-greasy and odor free.
SportsShield also comes in wipes that allow you cover large areas with the product. I was able to apply the product easily with the wipes.
This product provided awesome protection for 3-13.1 miles. I applied it to my bust and inner thigh area, the places I am most prone to experience chafing. After running, I had no chafing or skin issues. My clothes were also not stained after the run.
I decided to try 2Toms for a marathon to see if it could last for 26.2 miles. Like a charm, it worked very well. I did not experience chafing at all. This was amazing, since I had a terrible chafing episode after the Disney Marathon for the Dopey Challenge (I will spare you with the pictures) that resulted in extensive scarring and pain. My clothes also survived the product.
I am totally a 2Toms convert. My skin feels amazing after the run and that's one less thing I have to worry about. I would highly recommend this product to any runner.
