Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2015 Set Up

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 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!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Exclusive Runner Shop Sale Sneakius Peekius 2015

This is a copy of an email that I received from Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon. For the first time, runners will be able to get first crack at the exclusive Special Edition Seawheeze gear!

Each runner received a special email that will allow us early access to the Seawheeze store. This has been a sore point with runners from previous Seawheeze races because they would have to line up with the general public. This line was like Black Friday. People would start to line up the previous night. A lot of them would grab a lot and then promptly put it on eBay to sell.

After so many complaints, Lululemon Seawheeze finally listened and will now allow the runners into the store first from 7:00 AM to 9:30 AM. Then, the general public will be allowed in at 10:00 AM.

I am all excited about running this race for the first time! I’ve run many races, including marathons and half marathons, but this is the first Seawheeze for me! I’ve always volunteered for the race but I’m finally running it this year.

I’m trying to decide what to buy…and what time I should start lining up in the special runner’s line!

Take a look at this preview. What would you buy??

Dearest SeaWheezer,The pressure is building in the Excit-O-Chamber. And every science type worth their sodium nitrate knows that the best way to let out pressure in an Excit-O-Chamber is with a little sneak peek of some Special Edition SeaWheeze gear.

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!

This is a Lululemon Seawheeze half-marathon volunteer t-shirt from 2012.

Here is a full view of the front of the shirt. It is made of a thin t-shirt jersey fabric that has pima cotton and a little spandex.

Here is a close up view of the top of the front. There are two trees in front. One in blue and one in celadon green. I wasn’t sure what these signified. Some people thought that they looked like lungs. Some people thought that the charity was lung disease. I don’t know.
