As part of our mission to connect women to the energy of inspiration, we’d like to introduce you to some of the amazing bloggers in the health and fitness community through an ongoing series of posts highlighting our favorites. To kick things off, we’ve selected five blogs representing a range of topics that resonate with you, our blog readers. And to say “thanks” for all these bloggers do to keep us informed and inspired, we’ve supplied each with an Athleta GiftCard to use as they see fit (pun intended) in a giveaway. So check out the list below, then head over to their blogs and explore all the great content. (And while you’re there, you might want to enter for a chance to win that Athleta GiftCard!)
