If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you’ve heard me rave about Athleta before. This company, founded locally in my home county of Marin, makes my favorite travel and fitness clothes of all time.

Think bathing suits that don’t ride up, so you can actually swim, surf, and kayak in them rather than lie around looking ornamental. And hiking pants and shorts (and skorts, my personal fave) that truly have enough pockets so all you have to carry is your hip pack. Then there are the groovy travel-friendly dresses and yoga clothes cute enough to wear out for coffee afterwards.

In fact, I love Athleta’s yoga pants so much I highlighted them in a post about my favorite double-duty travel clothes; I’ve worn my Athleta yoga pants topped with a gauzy shirt to countless formal dinners all over the world and no one’s been the wiser.

SUP-ing in comfort with Athleta

A couple of weeks ago I got an exciting email notifying me that www.Health-Conscious-Travel.com was chosen to be featured on Athleta’s Chi Blog — a blog I follow devotedly — as one of five fitness and travel blogs selected for a giveaway. The prize? A $100 gift card to be used on all that Athleta gear you’ve been coveting! So, here’s what you need to do. Comment on this post, telling me what sport or activity you’d use your new Athleta gear for and why it’s important to you.

Bonus points for actually naming an Athleta item you’d use your gift card for. And even more bonus points for signing up via email or RSS feed to follow posts from Health*Conscious*Travel.com. And please include your email address so I can notify you if you win.

May the most devoted Athleta fan win!
