If you're out on a long training run for 2-3 hours during the spring, summer, or fall, use a sweatproof sunblock to help prevent a painful sunburn the next day. Although you'll probably sweat some of it off on a hot, humid day, a sweatproof formula sunblock stands up to sweat much better than a standard formula.
