BafflerMeal: djZorbof: brap: Can I still occasionally pause to make tastefully artsy prints with my bloody nipples?

I had a dream i was running my last mile shirtless and screaming with blood squirting from my nipples all over the crowd.

I would say that ultra-chafed or bleeding nipples is a sign that humans aren't supposed to run that much while wearing a shirt.

Really, for a person to cause themselves bodily harm just to win a race is the pinnacle of stupidity.

If you're bleeding, stop doing what is making you bleed.

OK...I have to ask, as I have never run farther than to the fridge in my life. Why do the nipples bleed?

Actually, that's not the worst part about raw nips. Getting into a shower afterward is. Maybe it's just because the water stings, or because the shower is washing all the salt off your body and it flows over your raw wounds. Either way, I'd suggest covering the problem chafed area with a coating of Vaseline before getting in; it will save you a world of misery.

Ever wear contact lenses for too long, and your eyes get blood shot because the small capillaries in the cornea try to get more oxygen at the surface? Same thing here, but with the excess dilation of the blood vessels from prolonged exertion, the natural opening at the end of the nipple (usually closed for men) will be forced open as this occurs. The skin tears a bit causing bleeding. It bleeds quite a bit more after that because of the exposed capillaries.

Tyrone Biggums: What happens is that people line up near the front of the starting line (which is usually reserved for faster runners) and do that.  He's a pretty avid runner so he usually lines up with the 7 or 8 minute/mile group. You'd think that everyone in that group and ahead of you would run faster.  But at this particular race people just get in line wherever they want and walk. So he's while he's trying to get a good time he has to spend the first mile or so of the race weaving around groups of people who are texting and taking pictures. One or two people doing this is generally not a problem.  But when you have 40 or 50 it disrupts the flow of the race.


Know your race. If this is more of a "social" race (Race for the Cure, anything with a significant number of people in costumes, "destination" events like a Disney race, 5ks, races with 5,000 or more entrants, etc.), expect that the starting corrals will be full of goofballs like that and make a beeline for the first few rows off the start line.

Nogale: Tyrone Biggums: balki1867: Unrelated CSB:

I was 15 miles into the Chicago marathon last year when some idiot jumped out of the crowd, and into the race course right in front of me to grab the perfect picture of her son/daughter/whoever.  I had to jump out of the way to avoid running over this woman who was significantly smaller than me.

In hindsight I wish I hadn't dodged her.

A buddy of mine ran the Turkey Trot in Naperville last year and said he felt like punching a few people.  He was trying to run for time and there were people in front of him texting, chatting, and taking pictures all while running.

/On a somewhat related note, I run my first marathon is in 5 days.

Best of luck - that means you were training in the worst of the heat, so hats off to you for that.


How much difference does the heat make?  I've been able to compare 60 degree AC to 90+ degree Charleston, SC but I haven't been running long enough to know if I'm up for trying a 10k in October or not.

If you aren't used to running in heat it can be a pretty serious issue but it depends on the person. Some people handle it better than others. Start out a bit slower than you would otherwise and see how it goes. Drink plenty of fluids. Dumping water on your head is excellent for cooling (but can cause chafing and stuff for some people).

The higher the temperarture and/or humidity, the more your body tries to use blood to cool you off.  That takes blood away from your muscles.  In general, if you're running in the heat, it's best to have a heart rate monitor so you can run by that.  You'll be a lot slower than usual, but as far as your heart is concerned, it's the same workout.

Oh I agree.  Like I said, it was a friend that ran it.  I was there for moral support.  And, having ran it in years past, I knew what the participants would do.  I thought the Shamrock Shuffle was really well organized for being ~40K runners.

WTF am I reading??!??

How about: sensitive, slightly protruding body part + loose fitting shirt = chaffing.
The end.

Yeah, this.

The thing with your eyes is totally different.  The corneas get their oxygen from the air around them, so when you wear contacts too long, you're suffocating them.  The capillaries grow out to supplement the oxygen supply.  Your skin doesn't work the same way.

Bleeding nips comes from having a piece of cloth vigorously moving directly against them for 4-5 hours.  Honestly theres no excuse for this.  If you're running a marathon you should've discovered this problem during one of your long training runs and taken the proper corrective action.

Thanks.  By the sound of it, my running at 5am in the summer (75-85 degrees, 75-90% humidity) will basically equate to running at noon in October.  Probably a little less intense.  I think I'll up my distance and train for the 10k.

There's a picture up in my office of me at the start of the Quad Cities marathon. To qualify for Boston I needed to run 3:15, somewhere around 7:25 mile pace, and my training supported that.   lined up in the middle of the 7 and 8 minute mile posts at the start.  Yet, in the aforementioned picture, the teeming mass of humanity in front of me includes a somewhat overweight dude pushing a lady in a wheelchair.  The group was the 9-10 minute milers.

Took two miles to weave and elbow through that pile.  By then, I was 3 minutes off pace. Finished in 3:18.

Now I'll go all R. Lee Ermey on people who do pull that shiate.  Have some respect, maggot.  Glaciers line up in the back, k?

Heat, and especially humid heat, makes an enormous difference. Most people who live in places with hot, sticky summers get up super early to run or run late in the evening. I don't know what the weather's like where you live, but certainly pushing yourself to new distances in the heat of the day is not the brightest training approach.
