In celebration of the past weekend’s New York City Marathon, this Monday’s motivation reveals the bloody price paid for a glorious marathon finish, a.k.a The Nipple Chafe. For some, nipple chafing is inevitable even when band-aid/vaseline precautionary measures are taken. However, nothing screams motivation like a bloody nipple…or two. If you plan on running a marathon, check out these guys first. They really sweat, bled and possibly wept (because of all that bleeding) for 26.2 miles.
Totally worth it.
Bled so much, the shirt is now a different color.
Still worth all the pain.
The solution: cut holes in the shirt around your nipples.
And if cutting nipple holes in your shirt isn’t an option, then slap on a couple of Band-Aids and pray for a chafe-free run!
