Athletica review and giveaway.

I'm a bit of a workout gear junkie, truth be told. So, when Athletica contacted me to try out some of their workout pants I couldn't wait to do so.

New gear never fails to make me feel good. The Athletica pants were no exception. I tried the rollover waist pants and the rollover waist capris. Here's what they look like:


Of the two, the capris are my favorite but I like them both. The fit was as described: Snug through the butt and thigh, with a flare at the bottom. The material was extremely comfortable and soft with lots of give and stretch. Since I'm pregnant, the stretch is key, as is the rollover waist. The waist is very comfortable and fit nicely under my expanding belly.

I've worn the pants and the capris for walks and weight-lifting, have washed them several times and they are holding up well. I plan to add them to my running gear rotation when the weather turns cooler in the fall.

Giveaway!

Athletica has generously offered to sponsor a giveaway of a $50 gift card to use at their web site. You can buy whatever you'd like -- maybe the rollover capris, a bra top, shorts, whatever! They have a wide range of items so I'm sure you'd be able to find something you'd like.

To enter, pop over to Athletica and leave me a comment letting me know what you might buy with your gift card.

As always, you can gain a few additional entries
(leave one comment per entry for the additional ones to count):
  • Follow this blog or my other blog, or let me know that you already do (leave a comment)
  • Link to this giveaway from your blog (leave a comment)
  • Become a fan of The Happy Runner on Facebook (leave a comment)
  • Link to this giveaway from Facebook or Twitter (leave a comment each time)
The giveaway will run through 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, July 6, 2010 and the winner will be chosen using random.org and posted on Wednesday.

Good luck!
