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.

Bike Course Marshalls

I spotted a friend, Josh who was volunteering as a bike course marshall!

I was also impressed with runners who had cycled here and then left their bikes with The Bicycle Valet! Talk about lots of energy!

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.

IMGP5083 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

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

We also got a KIND bar!

IMGP5093 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!

IMGP5123 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015IMGP5124 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

I sat down and stretched and ate my brunch.

IMGP5128 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

As I was leaving I spotted some more finishers! The announcers were great! One of them, Matt, is a great runner and yoga instructor!

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 Showcase Store 2015

Here are some photos of the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store this year. This year, they opened the store for the runners from 7 AM to 9:30 AM (exclusive runner shop) and then they allowed the general public in.

I think the store was the same size that it was last year.

I got to see the store the day before and it had a pretty good inventory. I was really looking forward to getting some pieces! I already had a mental picture of where I had to go first to grab them!

I decided to head down at midnight. I really thought that I would be one of the first people in line but that was definitely not the case! I was around number 115 at midnight! I heard that people started lining up at the showcase store at 7 PM the previous night! The store wasn’t going to open until 7 AM. By the time it opened, there were so many people in line and it wrapped around the huge convention center!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015

There were definitely determined and practical shoppers who brought chairs, blankets, pillow, an air mattress, a tent and sleeping bags. I brought a collapsible chair with a foot rest, knowing that I’d be sleeping.

IMGP4584 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4587 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015

Some of the shoppers in line were really excited. One girl brought balloons and played a game where each person had a balloon attached and they’d crash against each other until the balloons broke. Unfortunately, when the balloons burst, they were really noisy and even sounded like gunfire! The girl obviously didn’t realize that there are lots of high-rise condos that didn’t appreciate the raucous Lululemon revelers in the middle of the night.

IMGP4594 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015
People lined up soon after me.

Eventually, we were let in the convention center to another lines up. At least it was warmer inside and we were excited about the thought of going inside soon. I was so cold waiting those seven hours!
IMGP4606 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015
We were treated to acro yoga again this year while we waited in line. This pair is incredible!

Finally, at 7 AM, they let us, the first group in. We had been waiting anywhere from twelve hours to five hours. I had waited seven hours. I ran in straight for the bag that I wanted! Everybody else started grabbing things. The set up was very similar to previous years. I quickly accumulated 15 items but held on to them for dear life. People were eyeing others’ piles for the right size or item! Many people asked me if I was going to keep all of my things!

I took pictures of most everything. Since I was the first group in, I think I got most of it with the exception of a few. However, it was quite dark in there and I didn’t want to use a flash and bother people. So here is what I found and apologies to the picture quality, but you get the idea.IMGP4613 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4614 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4615 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4616 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4617 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4645 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4646 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015

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.

IMGP4549 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2015 Set Up

Here’s one of the assembly groups. I did this last year and wasn’t good at it!

IMGP4552 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2015 Set Up

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!

Here’s Josh from last year! Had a great time with these guys! Good luck with the race! (The volunteer voluncheer shirts, mens are grey, womens are pink). The fabric is so soft!

IMGP4565 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2015 Set Up

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)┬áLast 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!
