Anyone else running the 40th Marine Corps Marathon this year!?

So this October is the 40th Marine Corps Marathon, the peoples marathon! My last week as a Staff Sergeant in the Marines! Hopefully I'll be able to stand up straight for my USMC Promotion ceremony the following week.

Onto my question I have no idea where to post - I'm wearing Silkies (google "Daisy Dukes of Freedom" if you don't know what these are), any experts on here have any recommendations to prevent thigh chafing? Thanks to Field Strong my quads and hamstrings are so massive, it's bound to happen!

Years ago when I ran pretty frequently, I swore by BodyGlide. It's almost like a deodorant in consistency, but you just apply to the areas that need it. Worked really well for me.

Man I would love to but sadly it has running in it...

Good luck though. Trained for a marathon one time... Ran 4 hours... Asked myself what was I thinking... Went and ate a snickers blizzard and watched running shoes burn on my grill.

To anyone who finds this years later and is curious. BodyGlide worked phenomenally. I didn't expect it to, but it worked great!!!
