Who wants bloody nipples and huge blisters on their feet? Everyone has seen that guy (usually a guy) run across the finish line with blood streaming down his shirt from his nipple region. If you have seen him, or been him, then you know that the pain that will ensue for at least the next week is well worth the investment of a product to stop that from happening again.
Ever take a nice warm shower after a half marathon or olympic triathlon only to realize your groin region didn’t get the protection you needed? That raw skin sure feels like a cheese grater is running over it. Stings a little, doesn’t it?
After 1.2 miles of swimming, 56 miles of biking and 13.1 miles of running or more, most every triathlete can relate to mild blisters or the monster deep blood blisters that take weeks to recover from.
