Today was the set up day for the 2015 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon!
I volunteered with the set up group. We first picked up any trash so that they could lay down the turf. There wasn’t much so it didn’t take us long.
We had a great group of volunteers working! Most were runners who will be running this Saturday! Almost all were from out of town: Michigan, Chicago, San Francisco, Salmon Arm. There were only two of us from Vancouver. They didn’t have our shirts unpacked yet.
Here’s one of the assembly groups. I did this last year and wasn’t good at it!
These are just of a few of the 10,016s of bags that we assembled for the runners! I loved this bag a lot more than last year’s! And there are three different water bottle sayings so I hope that I get the one that I like best!
We were working right by the bay windows and it was so hot!
Here’s Josh from last year! Had a great time with these guys! Good luck with the race! (The volunteer voluncheer shirts, mens are grey, womens are pink). The fabric is so soft!
We got to preview the store. It looked just as big as last 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. I’m really happy that the runners will get to shop at 7 AM to 9:30 AM before the general public is let in. (Package pick up can wait! lol) Last year, people started to line up at 3AM and I expect people will do the same this year. I will be lining up earlier because I really don’t want to miss out on the things I’ve picked out!
I did see a few things that I will buy, I especially loved one bag, some shorts and some tops and bras! 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!
