I agreee with Jules...when my father-in-law ran marathons, he had to put band-aids over his nipples to keep his shirt from rubbing the skin off the nipples.

Bingo!  You figured it out!

26.2 Miles of running with fabric rubbing up against a man's nipples will indeed rub the nipples raw and cause the bleeding.  I am a triathlete,endurance cyclist (100 plus mile events) and marathoner.  Band Aides over the nipples prevent the rubbing or chaffing.  I never leave home without my band aides.
