    @mbaker566 I haven't done either North Face or Lakefront before. I did talk to a few people that have when I was debating signing up and they all had positive comments :)

    QUESTION: One of the races I'm considering is a half marathon on sand. Advice??? I have trails around me to train on, and some have sort-of sandy loose dirt, but that's not the same and I am not sure where I'd find sand to train on. Should I pick another race?

    I’m sure if the sand is packed it probably isn’t terrible, but I’m not sure it is something I would do for a half if I didn’t have sand around for practice on shorter runs.

    Re chafing prevention: I use Glide for underarm, 2Toms Sportshield for areas south of the border (roll-on means it's much easier to apply than a stick), and NipEaze for nipple protection. This combination allows me to run in the sweatiest of humid conditions for miles on end, and not scream in the shower afterwards.

    I have been considering trying NipEaze but have been hesitant because... unlike @LaDispute57 no band-aid, nor tape stays in place for me. When I have gotten things to stay its cause I used an egregious amount of tape PLUS wore a compression top to help hold it in place.
