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.

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.

Our names were announced as we crossed the finish line!

IMGP5087 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

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!

IMGP5092 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015IMGP5102 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

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!

I sat down and stretched and ate my brunch.

IMGP5128 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

IMGP5138 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015IMGP5141 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

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!

I went to the second class, July 15th, 2015. Here’s a view approaching the area. You can see the Olympic Flame Cauldron in the background. It was a beautiful sunny day with blue skies. Last week it was hazy from the smoke of the forest fires but this week it was better.

Here is a picture of the instructor, Alli. I’ve not taken a class from her so I was really glad that she was the instructor today!
