Last summer after the worst chafing I’ve ever experienced I decided to try Mission Athletecare’s Anti-chafe stick. I promised I would let you know how it went so here is the review a mere 10 months later…
This review will be brief. I love it! I put it on before almost all my training runs and before all my races (including my last 4 marathons) and it is perfect! I recommend buying the stick version over the cream because it is less messy and it glides on like deodorant.
I usually buy it online through Amazon because it offers the best price I’ve seen ($8.79) and you can get free with Amazon super saver shipper (qualifying orders of $25 or more). I usually order 2 or 3 at a time to stock up. You will not want to run out of this stuff! You can also find it at many running stores .
I put this on before any run more than 5 miles (which is most runs- especially during marathon training). I find that the times I am especially prone to chafing are:
- Any long run but ESPECIALLY marathons
- Runs outside in the heat of summer
- Runs outside in the rain
The areas I am more prone to chafing are:
- inner thighs
- under my sports bra line
The recent humidity on my morning runs this week reminded me of my chafing incident from last summer so I thought this would be a good time to review this product.
