The dreaded chub rub, what’s next swamp butt!

First things first, look at these two,

Boomer and Hank

They love each other so much. It makes my heart swell.

Okay, let’s talk about something that is driving me crazy.  Remember how I said that since I stopped taking topirimate I’ve gained like 10 pounds?  Well that’s what happened only it’s probably more like 12 or 13 pounds.  It’s not the extra pounds that is bothering me though.

It’s the chub rub!

I am not even kidding.  I’ve never had it before.  Ever.  I have however dealt with chaffing under my sports bra so I assumed that body glide would do the trick for the thigh chaffing.  It did not.

So, I switched to anti Monkey Butt because it was highly recommended.  Nope.

I changed to capris and running pants instead of shorts.  Relief.  But herein lies the problem.  Running tights, pants and capris are not going to work for much longer.  It gets hotter than hades here in Florida and I can’t run in anything that covers more than the bare minimum.

I can’t be the only person with this issue.

What is your solution for the dreaded thigh chaffing?  And does it work for long runs that last over a few hours?

  1. Develop callouses. Haha kidding. I don’t get the rub often. I mean, it does but I don’t feel it usually. Thighs are definitely touching right now but not much friction.
    Maybe longer shorts? I wear Brooks 7″ shorts, maybe 5. They have to be longer because I have a bubble butt lol

  2. Never in MY ENTIRE life do I remember a time that my thighs did not rub….I have dreamed of the day and what it would feel like but yet I can only imagine. Therefore, sorry it gets hotter than Hades in Florida but I have no tips for you….I live in tights, capris, or the like….nothing shorter than above the knee actually….that knee fat is ugly too.

    (as I sit eating ice cream….gawd help me!)
