A nice little “side effect” of having tunnel vision about bathing suit season is my sudden and frequent bouts of wanderlust resulting in searches for tropical places to vacation (hopefully in the near future!). I’m more than a little addicted right now to scouring Jetsetter for, say, a boutique hotel deal in Zihuatanejo (it’s in Mexico, for those of you who, like me, had no idea until this morning) or a decadent spa retreat in Bali. The photos on this travel site are so luxuriously dreamy that I nearly hit the “buy” button every time I log in.

But back to reality and the whole bathing suit thing…With spring and summer travels in mind, I thought I’d throw another fun new fitness event into the mix, and do a first-time giveaway on my blog.

This Saturday, one of my favorite magazines, SELF, debuts its 18th annual Workout in the Park in San Francisco. Guest host Alison Sweeney (of “The Biggest Loser fame) will be there for a full day of outdoor fitness, classes from Crunch gym, beauty, fashion, and nutritional consultations, and a lot of fun swag.

The first three readers who respond to this post with the answer to the following question will get a free goodie box of workout products from SELF sent to them.

  1. I do leg muscle-tightening exercises in the car at stop lights. At home, I “dance” with the kids to their music DVDs. Great blog entry on this event!

  2. Nice blog! I try to do 1 or 2 sets of push-ups while giving the kids a bath, do occasional planks while watching TV, and always take the stairs instead of the elevator.

  3. Working by the Embarcadero and Telegraph hill means I have no excuse to miss an after work workout session! Bringing a co-worker with me as my workout buddy is an extra incentive!
