The condition is easily preventable. Viable methods include:

* Simply running shirtless whenever weather permits.
* Sticking a small bandage or paper surgical tape over each nipple before the commencement of exercise, to act as a barrier between skin and cloth.
* If the skin is already damaged, apply a pure lanolin product (e.g. Lansinoh) to the area prior to exercise to prevent chafing. If the skin is not damaged, a barrier product (e.g. Vaseline) can be used. These products do not allow air to circulate around damaged skin; this can prevent healing if used over a period of time. NU-Skin liquid Bandage can be very helpful for healing althought it may sting initially, it also works as a preventative and is more discrete than tape.
* Using specialized products available to prevent the condition such as rash guards.

jackshoegazer has very good suggestions.

Also, you could wear a sports bra. And post pictures of this on the Internet.

I really doubt the internet wants to see that....

You underestimate, or perhaps overestimate, the Internet.

Wikipedia, under the entry for jogger's nipple (or more accurately, fissure of the nipple.)

Start lactating!

Also, I just got home from running 10k at an average of better than 12m pace. While I was running I was listening to a Science Friday podcast about the way social networks spread ideas like being happy or being fat. So I thought I'd share a little distance running encouragement and suggest that when you start lactating, you save the milk and make cheese with it.

Opps, I guess this is directed at will, though I generally encourage everyone to participate in human cheese farming.

That sounds like something that requires a woman's touch.
