    If you start your running slow - run a lamp post/ walk a lamp post....... you will find that one day you will run two/ walk one........ then three/one
    and so on and so forth until you are running 60 minutes non-stop. It doesn't pay to increase it too quickly, but really listen to your body Ayla. This is actually something that we seem to do the more we eat this way, so I need to plan and implement a new goal - ie half marathon etc... I am really keen to do the molesworth 84 km, but I would have some serious training to do before then.
    Lisa Tamati s book is interesting reading, as is Dean Karnazes. Really good reads. Very inspirational.
    Anyway Ayla - if you are keen on getting back into running email me. I have all sorts of good tips !!!!

    Monistat makes a silicone chafing powder, it's smooth and silky, and as a bonus, you can use it on your face as makeup primer too. It's better than most makeup primers out there lol. I get mine for a few bucks at Walmart.

    Yeah, buy a new pair of pants.

    And yes, there are all sorts of chafing solutions. Body Glide works well. Don't let chafing stop you! And it happens to everyone.

    Commercial products are available for that too. I have no personal experience to offer since I've never used them (or anything) but petro jelly seems like it would be sticky/messy. Maybe they all are, I don't know.

    Whatabout wearing compression shorts? That's what I wear under skirts to make them more comfortable. Might last longer than new pantsas you continue to lose.

    My thighs used to rub all the time when I was a child. I remember being so embarrassed, cause all my pants would wear out and get large holes on both sides. The weird thing was that I have never been that overweight. Maybe 15 - 20 lbs.
    Then as an adult I've been from 20 to 40 lbs overweight at times and even more with my pregnancy. Never had any chafing. Weird.

    Body Glide is great and so is 2Toms Sport Shield. I've use both to help prevent blisters when I've had to do some distance walking.
