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!

After the race we were pretty chilly because of the wind.

IMGP5120 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015IMGP5096 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

Ran into another friend who was volunteering! I felt so badly for her because it was so cold and windy! At least we runners warmed up while we ran!

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!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day 2013

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

Some volunteers had to show up for their shift as early as 5 AM if they signed up for gear check. I volunteered to be a course marshal and I had to be there at 6:15 AM. We were the first water and aid station, at around the 5 or 6 K mark.

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day 2013 Part One

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day 2013 Part One

The race start was 7 AM!

By the time the first runners would reach our area, it would be around 7:15 AM or so.  In the meantime, the aid volunteers had to fill up hundreds of cups of water and cut up bananas among other things.

IMGP5494 IMGP5497 IMGP5498

Finally, we got the word that they were close to our area!

IMGP5499

Here are the first runners!

IMGP5500

Before long, the area was packed with runners grabbing their first water of the race.

IMGP5501 IMGP5502

They weren’t that careful and I got splashed with water as they threw their cups on the ground.

IMGP5503

It was a constant stream of runners until we got word that the last runners were approaching. We gave a big cheer to them and then finished dismantling the area.

I ran across the Burrard bridge toward the 6 mile mark, to cheer them on again. Some runners remembered me from the earlier station. This was where there was another water station where my friends were volunteering.

IMGP5506

IMGP5507

IMGP5508

This is the area right beside the Lululemon headquarters building. There were lots of staff dressed in red and yellow cheering on the runners!

After that I went home. I didn’t go to the finish line, but I saw the photos and it looked absolutely exciting and amazing! Great race!
