10 Signs You’re a Runner (aka. Awesome)

1. You run. Okay, this might be obvious (okay, it’s REALLY obvious). But it’s still an important distinction. Before, going for walks was a fulfilling experience. Now, you can’t help but speed it up a little (even if you’re not wearing the right shoes). Walking just feels so… inefficient. You got a taste for speed […]

The Water is Wide

Clambering down a ladder in the near dark isn’t easy – hang it off the side of a fishing boat, add some rolling waves and a bobbing kayak, and you have the start of an open water swim pilot’s day. Actually, that isn’t quite true – the day starts nearly two hours earlier, as pilots […]

An Athleta Tradition: “The Relay”

The inside of the current Athleta summer catalog reads, “Together, we can do amazing things.” I can’t think of a more fitting way to describe this past weekend… more »

The TRX Experiment

by Jacqueline Judge, Team Athleta | When Michelle, our social media expert, arrived at my desk to ask if I’d be interested in taking a TRX class and writing an article about it for our chi blog, I immediately said, “I’m beyond down,” or some other silly exclamation that, in hindsight, was a very transparent indication of my naïveté surrounding the sheer difficulty…

The Relay: Not For the Faint of Heart

by Penny, Relay Captain for Team Athleta | It’s always hard for me to find the words to explain the Relay experience. The first thing I would like to say is… what a fantastic group of people! This event is a success because of the team of people that come together to go through this adventure—it’s probably the most taxing weekend of the year…

What I Learned From Doing The Relay

by Anne Marie Sebastiani, Triathlon Coach and Certified Personal Trainer | It was MUCH harder than I expected! I don’t know what I was thinking? I guess my current training of ~10-13 hrs/week for my Half Ironman this July had me thinking two stints of ~5 miles over a weekend wouldn’t be hard…

Girls On the Run

Team Athleta is honored to support and participate in our local council of Girls On the Run, an international non-profit organization with the mission to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. We hope this video will inspire Chi readers to find a local council and volunteer or donate…

On the Podium with Team Ponytail Express

I started doing Triathlon Relay Races last summer. It is a great way to race with your best friends and compete for the same goal. It’s mostly about having fun together, but almost impossible to not get caught up in competing with the other teams! This year, I rounded up two good friends to join me in the Barb’s Race Relay. Barb’s Race is the only women’s half Ironman triathlon in the world…

Blisters Don’t Need Chemo

Well… I did it. I walked 39 miles in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I am still nursing blisters and sore muscles and what feels like some kind of nerve damage in my foot, but what an amazing, wonderful experience…

Athleta Triathlon

We’re a company that believes in empowering women, and that belief starts at the core of Team Athleta. On July 3rd six ladies hit a milestone in their lives by doing something they never thought they’d do — completing their first ever triathlon…
