Summer is suddenly upon us here in Cleveland. We had a week of marvelous fall-like temperatures, but now we’re lingering in the 80s and pushing 90 degrees. Needless to say, this makes running a sweaty mess.
I’m a heavy sweater, so I’m used to having wet pits, back, and face daily, but when I run, my whole body just drips a constant stream of sweat. OK, I’m getting gross. Here’s the deal: sweating isn’t the most comfortable in general, but here are some sweat issues I feel like calling out today.
- Inner thighs. I’ve gotten body shamed by people claiming I’m too thin to understand inner thigh sweat and chafing. Are you kidding me, girl?! This is THE WORST. I have photos of inner thigh chafing to prove I’m not immune to this issue, but I’ll spare you.
- Underboob. This is just another reason sports bras are a struggle. Even for us small-breasted ladies, it’s hard to find something tight enough around the ribs that will catch the sweat, provide support, and NOT cut off air. I often finish runs with so much bra sweat, I could wring it out into a puddle.
- Under the eyebrows. Um…when the sweat is coming out under your brows, it has a straight path to your eyes. Not cool.
- FEET. My feet are always SO SMELLY and this isn’t even a summer issue. They sweat year-round in any shoes (including sandals…I know, it doesn’t make sense).
Let us know about your sweat complaints! We love gross stories!
