Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2014 Free Nooner Yoga Class Vancouver Alex Mazerolle

This was a special nooner yoga class for the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon!

There were hundreds of yogis today and it was my job as a volunteer with several other volunteers to fit them all on the special green turf area adjacent to the convention center.

Here are some views of today’s instructor, Alex who also did a summer nooner class earlier this month! She owns her own yoga studio in North Vancouver!

This was really great! I’m sure the runners appreciate getting as much stretching in before the race, too! Thanks very much to Lululemon for offering this special summer nooner class for the Seawheeze Half Marathon runners!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2014

Here are some photos of what was left of the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store this year.

This store was supposed to be over 22,000 square feet. It did seem bigger than last year.

I got to see the store the day before and it had a pretty good inventory. I was really looking forward to getting some pieces!

I heard that people started lining up at the showcase store at 3 AM. The store opened at 7 AM. By the time it opened, there were so many people in line!

I didn’t get to the store until after my volunteer shifts (where we were run off our feet with all of the runners picking up their race packages), volunteering setting up the nooner yoga, and finally, doing the nooner yoga.

By the time I got there, it had been really picked over. I couldn’t believe how fast the inventory went. Needless to say, everything that I had my eye on, was long gone.

The biggest complaint? The store was open to the public, so runners who chose to pick up their race package would have to wait in line again. Somebody spotted an eBay ad selling Seawheeze items at 9:30! I really agree with the runners, that they should have gotten first pick. After all, many of them had paid for the entry, airline, hotels, restaurants, etc. The least Lululemon could have done was give them a little consideration.

I wish I could have been able to take pictures of the items that were sold out by the time I got there. There was some cute stuff. But, it was gone within the first hour of the sale.

I’m sure that I’ll see a lot of the Seawheeze special edition items at the race tomorrow! Check out the photos of the runners online on social media and you’ll be able to see them, too!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2014 Set Up

Today was the set up day for the 2014 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon!

I volunteered with the package pick up set up group. Some of them came in for the race from as far as Saskatchewan and Honolulu!

We got to preview the store. It is 22,000 square feet this year! We were warned not to take any photos of any of the limited edition items and put them on social media before the grand unveiling tomorrow at 7 AM. Last year, people started to line up at 4 AM and I expect people will do the same this year.

I did see a few things that I will buy. I was happy to see that the clothing is fairly different from last year. I know that the others who got to see the store were also impressed and will go early to shop! As usual, I’m sure that these limited edition items will sell out quickly!

Last Sunday Yoga Class at the Old Robson Lululemon Store, Construction on the New Burrard Store

Now that the new Lululemon Flagship store is almost finished for the Opening, the old Robson Street Lululemon store is ready to close its doors. They have been having regular Thursday morning and Sunday morning yoga classes for a long time. This was a photo of the last Sunday class.

Here are photos of the last-minute construction on the new flagship store. I can’t imagine how much overtime they must be paying these construction workers! I wonder if it will all get done for the opening on Tuesday. The grand opening will be on Thursday, just in time to launch the 2014 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon. I can hardly wait to see it!

Vancouver Lululemon Flagship Store to Open Soon!

I walked by the construction site of the new Lululemon Flagship store on Burrard Street and Robson Street.

It was announced that it will be open August 19th, 2014!

Here’s a view from across the street.

As I went closer though, I saw that they had put up sheets of the Lululemon manifesto to cover up what they were doing inside.

Here are some photos of them. They covered all the windows up pretty well! Guess it’ll be a big surprise on opening day!

On August 17th, the Robson Street store will be closed down. I will miss this store! I’ve been taking yoga classes at that store for years.

A few days after the big opening, Lululemon will have the third annual Seawheeze Half-Marathon! So that’ll be great timing for the store to be open for all of the out-of-town participants to get a little shopping in before they leave.

I can hardly wait to see the new store!
