I recently helped at the ing nyc marathon 06 and notice many of the male runners where bleeding. I asked several of my male friends and family members and none of them knew. Why and How do men nipples bleed?
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.
