This class was taught by Christie Baumgartner! She taught a Lululemon nooner class and she was awesome!

Lululemon ambassador, Ryan Leier taught yoga to thousands of us! I had never taken a class from him but he was really remarkable!

They had large screens so that all the yogis in the back could see him better.

This yogi didn’t have a mat but still managed to totally rock the poses!

I remember when I saw this guy, I was so stunned to see him and then to notice that he ran in sandals! Imagine running a half marathon in sandals!

Countdown to Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2013

It is now officially the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2013 Week! The race itself is this Saturday, August 10, 2013 at 7 AM. I have been waiting all year since last year’s first race! This was such an awesome event and I’m sure it’ll be just as great this year!

This year, the race was just as popular with all 10, 014 runners spots being sold out quickly! Last year, this race attracted a lot of local and out-of-town runners.

Although I’m a runner, I prefer to volunteer. I had such a good time volunteering last year. Lululemon treated us very well.

One of the featured yoga classes taught by super yogi, Christie Baumgartner, is on world-famous Kitsilano beach, which is close to Lululemon headquarters and the first Lululemon store. This class is part of Kitsfest, which has tennis and beach volleyball on the beach the same weekend.

Runners also get access to seaside resort activities, the luon lounge and a post race brunch among other things. Last year that included massages!

There will also be special edition gear in a retail store. It was really popular last year and I saw long lines of people all day long!

Here’s the course map. The runners will be treated to a course with gorgeous Vancouver sea and mountains! Most Vancouver runners are familiar with this scenic course, running the sea wall.

In addition to the race and yoga, the event is capped off with the Saturday night sunset festival at beautiful Stanley Park! It starts with yoga with Ryan Leier and then a concert featuring, Xavier Rudd and Passenger!

If you’re in Vancouver and would like to participate, there are still volunteer positions available! If you are registered as a runner, good luck and have a great time!

I’ll be blogging about the Seawheeze events and show the retail items all this week as I did last year.
