Designed and tested by our friends Meg and Dave Chun at Kialoa, the Waikiki Inflatable Paddleboard and Tiare Women’s Specific Paddle will take you from clear lakes to ocean surf, from world travels to weekend adventures. (more…)
No More Shrink it and Pink it
As women, we want gear that performs, not just something smaller and pinker; which is why we love Juliana mountain bikes.
Tested, used, and approved by women; Juliana Bicycles are designed with proven geometry to meet the demands of our female riders and the trails they ride. Founded by Olympian and Mountain Bike Hall of Famer, Juli Furtado, these bikes kick so much butt we just had to share one with our customers!

Week Three Winner
Yes, it is rest day! While you’re ready to spend the day on the couch, your friend convinces you to lace up running shoes or pull on hiking boots instead. Sometimes that unplanned workout can be a most welcomed detour. Take a photo of you and a friend getting in a workout, especially one you were reluctant to do (but aren’t you glad you did)?
This week’s winner will receive one detour-ready Dream Dress ($79) for you AND one for a friend!

Week One Winner
Oops! We open our gym bag at boot camp to find we haven’t packed a sports bra. We’re ready to head out for our lunchtime run only to discover we left our running shoes at home. Forgetting a key piece of gear for your workout is an unwelcome detour. Do you call it quits and head home, or get creative and make it happen anyway? No gear? No problem! Share a photo of yourself getting your workout done – even if you’ve forgotten an important piece of gear.
To enter, simply follow us on Instagram, post a photo of yourself getting it done despite your gear fail, and tag it #EmbraceTheDetours and @Title Nine. Photos for the Week Two Challenge must be submitted between Monday, March 14 at 12:01am and Sunday, March 20 at 11:59pm PDT and your Instagram account MUST be public during the contest or we are unable to view your submissions. Each week, one winner will receive an item of detour-ready gear from Title Nine. Multiple entries allowed, because we know detours happen every day!
Check the blog each Monday through April 4 to see the weekly winning photos. It could be your pic!
Week two winner – @lauralyntaylor: “The only thing I REALLY want to be known as a “bad ass” for is as a mom. My son needs practice time dribbling and rebounding, so the ball is in the car always. If he wants to practice, we practice. Even after church. In a dress. And heels. Because one day when I’m old and gray and about to die, I want my son to look at me with his kids and say, “‘your grandma was one bad ass woman. I remember when…'”
No basketball shoes? No problem for Lauralyn. She didn’t let her lack of gear stop her from quality time with her son. That’s truly one “bad ass” way to #EmbraceTheDetours! Thanks to everyone who entered the GEAR DETOURS challenge. We got so many great ideas for how to get it done despite missing a key piece of gear: using old socks as arm warmers, lip balm as body glide, even wearing your infant twins as a weight belt! You are one resourceful bunch. We can’t wait to see what detours you embrace next.

We’ve all been there: no sports bra in our gym bag means we swap that bouncy boot camp for Pilates instead. A hike with friends morphs into a walk with our toddler when the babysitter cancels. Our easy run turns into “squirrel-sprints” when our puppy refuses to slow down.
At Title Nine we welcome these wrong turns, these accidental adventures that send us down a new or unexpected path. Sometimes frustrating, sometimes welcomed, the detours in our lives are often where the most interesting stuff happens. We ‘embrace the suck’ when we’re training hard, we ‘embrace change’ when we’re given challenges in our life. We #EmbraceTheDetours.
We are celebrating detours this month by challenging you to show us the detours in your life and how you turn them into positives. Follow us on Instagram and check in each Monday, starting March 7, for a new #EmbraceTheDetours challenge and a chance to win detour-ready gear from Title Nine. Ready for your first challenge?
