Thanks to some very kind public-relations folks, I'm never at a loss for workout

pants. But a pair I love? Well, that's been a little bit harder to come

by. Right now these Energy flares from Brooks are my favorites. These

pants have done something no other piece of workout apparel has:

They've made their way into my out-of-the-gym wardrobe. I wear them to

fly, to hike, and even to weekend brunches. Don't get me wrong, they're

still fabulous for the gym. They feel super-soft, dry quickly, and they don't cling to my butt or thighs.

Tell me: What one workout item are you wearing non-stop lately?
