About Rebecca Rushton

It was 2008 and it took 8 minutes...

Eight minutes to get blisters at the back of my heels :(

Long story short, I read a lot stuff, changed a few things, and now I don't get blisters anymore. And since 2012, I've been helping athletes get on top of their own blister issues through my Blister Prevention website and by volunteering at multiday ultramarathon events. 

 
About Rebecca Rushton
 

If you want to get on top of your foot blisters, I've got 3 pieces of advice:

  1. Stop thinking about "heat, moisture and friction"
  2. Always use the words "friction level" instead of just friction
  3. Stop using the words "rub" and "rubbing" when you talk and think about blisters
 
 
 
 

Need help with your blisters?

Here's how to get it.
