Tried It Tuesday: Body Glide #Giveaway

xw4uDdB6_400x400If you’ve been around here, you know I have been running for well over twenty years. Despite that, I sometimes still make mistakes and need to go back to the basics. If you saw my LA Marathon recap and SLS3 review, you know I got pretty chafed up. Chafing is the such a bummer and it’s also preventable. I have tried and liked many anti-chafe products. The first one I ever tried years ago was Body Glide. You know what? It is still one of the best!

Though my relationship with Tomoson, I received a two pack of the original Body Glide from Amazon. I decided to use one and give one away.

A good mantra!!

A good mantra from a great company!

Body Glide was “born” in 1996 when I started marathoning. It protects against chafing by creating a “dry, invisible barrier.” You can apply it once before activity and it “stops trouble before it starts.” You can put it anywhere that skin can rub. It is a stick that is easy to apply with no mess. It washes off easily, too. It works when it is hot, humid, cold or dry. It even works in and under water. The product is made of natural, plant made ingredients. It is fragrance free,  hypoallergenic and it is never tested on animals. It is safe for frequent or daily use. It is the official sport lubricant on the USA Triathlon association and is used by runners everywhere.

Body Glide for the win!

They say (and I agree) that “prevention is better than the cure.” Preventing chafing “costs less than buying first aid supplies and waiting for recovery.” True that! After LA, I had chafing for two weeks and I still have a scar on my hip! I broke out the Body Glide for the Naperville Women’s Half Marathon last weekend. It was supposed to be hot. I was planning to wear a Spibelt to carry my phone and keys. I did not want a repeat of LA. I used Body Glide on my hips, around my sports bra and on my upper thighs. I had NO chafing! Yay! No pain or issues at all. There is a reason why this product is the gold standard!

Want to try Body Glide? I will send one lucky person my second full sized stick. And, great news, it is 2.5 oz so there are no issues with carrying it on. It also lasts a long time! I got the women’s product a few years ago and it is still going! Please use the Rafflecopter below to enter to win. The giveaway ends on May 5th and a winner will be selected and notified on May 6th. Winner must have a US postal address, be 18 years of age or older and the offer is void where prohibited.

What are your summer plans? Where will you take your Body Glide if you win?

Please note: I received this product at a big discount in exchange for an honest review. I was not otherwise compensated for this post. All opinions are my own. I have been using Body Glide for a LONG time and am happy to share some with you!

    I will be working all summer. But I work outside all day and as a matter of fact, yesterday was so hot and when I got home, I had terrible chafing on my inner thigh. I would use this daily!

  2. Debbie Clauer says:

    I would take it on a couple 5 K’s. This product is new to me.

  3. Jeffrey says:

    I’m running the Cleveland Marathon in May this year but have nothing else on the calendar which is somewhat depressing. Probably some local 5k race this summer with a couple of fall marathons.

  4. I would use it to train for my first marathon post baby! I’m going to need it with the heat/humidity in the FL summer heat!

  5. Angela W says:

    This Summer I will be working but will run on the weekends at different places and locations.

  6. Colette says:

    Always good to have glide!

  7. Amy Lauren says:

    I’d use it on a lot of runs! Especially around my sports bra line… oops.

  8. Tessa says:

    I’ll be running and cycling all summer and this would definitely help!

  9. Kimberly says:

    After chafing for the first time at the RnR Chicago race, I knew I never wanted that to happen again so I purchased Body Glide for my next race and I never looked back lol

  10. Theresa says:

    I will be taking it with me on long runs as I train for the Naperville Marathon. Inner thighs will get most use because I do like my running shorts.

  11. Lauren says:

    No specific races planned, but I would us it on long runs.

  12. Ken C says:

    I would want the glide for long runs on the hot days.

  13. Shiduna Townsend says:

    I plan on doing a 4th of July 5K and the Run like a Diva 5K as well.

  14. Katie-Jean says:

    I have a half marathon in Mississippi on Labor Day weekend, so i will have all summer to train for that. I will be using lots of Body Glide!

  15. The summer long run + body glide= smooth sailing 🙂

  16. julie says:

    i’m signed up for a half marathon next month!

  17. Lisa N says:

    Summer is HOT in Florida so it’s actually hard for me to be active, but I’m just starting to get back into running and will do most of it on the treadmill. I find that I actually chafe more when on the treadmill than outside so I’ll definitely be using body glide. I’d love to win as my supply is running low.

  18. Rhoni4 says:

    I would put this in my transition bag for my triathlons. I do several in the summer and have my first one in June.

  19. Amanda C. says:

    So, story I haven’t told you yet! At the start of last week’s marathon, Linds & Jason were body-gliding all over and offered me some. I’ve never used it before and haven’t had too much chaffing trouble at races so declined. By mile 4, the water I had been dumping over my head (thanks heat!) was causing some serious damage where the racing singlet met my underarm. Thank goodness for the amazingly organized race directors for handing out sticks with Vaseline (that’s a thing!!) later in the race. Skin somewhat saved! Anyway, I think I need to try some of this for real 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Reina says:

    I don’t exercise outdoors because of my fear of chaffing. I may just have to throw on some running shorts and head outside!

  21. Mandi says:

    I have a 10k for June, 2 halfs in the fall and I am sure I will find some more to sign up for this summer.

  22. Nik says:

    I just got a teaching job!

  23. Julie G says:

    I just plan to run 3 days a week and maybe some short races. I will take it with me to any race or outdoor activity

  24. Barrie says:

    I’ll use bodygilde as hubby and I bike ride this summer! I also power walk with my dog and can really use it then too!

  25. Angela Saver says:

    I would use Bodyglide when we go on hikes this summer!

  26. Michelle B says:

    I’m running a wine half marathon is August. Right now that’s all I have planned but We are going on a road trip too and I’m sure I’ll find some race along the journey. Ha. I LOVE body glide. It seriously has saved my thighs many times.

  27. Hiking all summer long! And then Disney World in June.

  28. Caroline says:

    I have a marathon in a few weeks, and then we’ll see. Lots of outdoor swimming and hiking for sure!

  37. Debbie F says:

    I’m new to running so I haven’t participated in any races yet – and I think I did too much too soon and pulled a muscle sooooo I’m on a break right now so this summer I plan to work on exercising other body parts so I can run without injury.
    thanks!

  38. Doing some smaller local races in Memphis this Summer…it gets HOT here in Tennessee, definitely need “The Glide”! The latter part of Summer, St. Jude training kicks off.

  39. Serena Powell says:

    I’m actually planning on completing a lot of races this year, about one a month, so I am sure Body Glide would help a lot.

  40. I use BodyGlide for all races 15K and longer! It’s a LIFESAVER!!!

  41. I never had issues with chafing until recently when I’ve been running 18-20 miles at a time…OUCH!!! Everyone I know recommends Body Glide and I think it’s time to finally give it a try.

  42. Jen says:

    This would be great for summer beach runs!

  43. This would be great for those hot summer month runs… oh boy!

  44. Ginny Hunt says:

    I had my first half in April. I have a handful of virtual races coming up. Mother’s & Father’s day 5ks are a few.

    Hoping for the Baltimore, MD half in October.
