How to Prevent Chafing when Running - A Sport Shield #GIVEAWAY

I run in skirts.  All the time.  And I DON'T have thigh gap.  Shocking I know!  So, even though Spandits are awesome and I wear shorts underneath, I am subject to HEAVY DUTY chafing.


Well, I am saying NO!  No blisters.  No chafing.  Thankfully, I discovered Sport Shield early on in my running career and thankfully, I haven't had any problems with chafing.  

I have told you about Sport Shield many, many, many times.  But I haven't yet in 2016!  Sport Shield has two awesome products, Original and Sport Shield for Her!  Non toxic and it contains aloe and Shea butter to moisturize and soothe. Okay so it prevents friction from chub rub AND it moisturizes?  All you need to do to remove it is to add soap and water!




I use it every single time I run.  It is truly the unsung hero of my marathon training!  Super easy to apply.  It goes on like a roll on but then dries dry.  No residue and no stickiness.  


I am giving you a chance to win your choice of a regular Sport Shield or a Sport Shield for Her!  


Whether you run in a skirt, with a hydration pack, sports bra or shorts, you need anti-chafe and the best one I have ever found and my very favorite is Sport Shield!  So enter on the Rafflecopter!

  7. I had an issue with chafing once. My t-shirt sleeves were way to short and my inner arms rubbed on my shirt the whole race. Felt like a bad rub burn later. I always make sure my sleeves are long enough.

  16. I've only ever tried vaseline, but this looks like a great product! The problem with being a girl and a runner is I swear we all chafe, and nothing worse than not preparing before it happens:)

  24. I hate chafe! I ran a 7 mile run the other day in the wrong pants and the chafe was awful! Normally I make sure to wear a comfortable pair of pants and when I know it's gonna be a rough day for a run, I make sure to use baby powder or a chafing cream
