Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

Here are some photos from Saturday, the day of the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon.

I was quite tired from lining up for the exclusive store the night before so I really wanted to get as much rest before the race. I don’t live too far from the start line so I hopped on the bus. There were two other runners on the bus at that time. I wasn’t sure what the weather would be like so I had a few outfits in mind. It was supposed to rain but I hoped that it wouldn’t be too bad.

When I put on the weather forecast, it said that it wasn’t that warm but it probably wouldn’t rain. I was glad so I didn’t bother with rain gear. I had bought a nice jacket at the Seawheeze store and I was tempted to wear it.

I got to the convention center and there was lots of runners inside, doing the usual, dropping off their bags at gear check, stretching, eating, going to the bathroom and heading outside. I stayed inside until the last minute because I wanted to keep warm.

Startline

Self Seeded Corrals

I couldn’t remember what corral I had signed up with and I couldn’t find any of my friends. Nor could I find my friend who was a pace beaver! I just went in one and stuck to it.

Volunteers with our medals! A sight for sore eyes! Or sore legs!

IMGP5088 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

The medal this year was a heavy gold colored carrot with a bite out of it. It had a plain black string. Seriously, I only had it on for a few minutes before I had to take it off because my neck hurt from the weight of it!

IMGP5104 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

We also got a nice runner’s kit from Saje! It has two small vials of recovery products. I will definitely go to the store here to buy another one!

One last shot…doggy friend in shades beside the pace car!

IMGP5145 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

I had a really fun race! I managed to do okay despite taking over 250 photos during the race! Although I was familiar with the course since I live here, I was still blown away seeing it during this race. I loved seeing all the entertainment along the race, too! I felt so energized by the race, I ran home! Thanks so much to Lululemon, all the staff, volunteers, cheerers and runners!

I can hardly wait for the 2016 race!
