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!

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.

So happy to reach the last stretch!

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

I like the black runner’s cap, too! I like it better than last year’s cap!

IMGP5094 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!

IMGP5130 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Race Day Review 2015

Delicious Runner’s Brunch from Bearfoot Bistro!

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!

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!

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) Last 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!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Exclusive Runner Shop Sale Sneakius Peekius 2015

This is a copy of an email that I received from Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon. For the first time, runners will be able to get first crack at the exclusive Special Edition Seawheeze gear!

Each runner received a special email that will allow us early access to the Seawheeze store. This has been a sore point with runners from previous Seawheeze races because they would have to line up with the general public. This line was like Black Friday. People would start to line up the previous night. A lot of them would grab a lot and then promptly put it on eBay to sell.

After so many complaints, Lululemon Seawheeze finally listened and will now allow the runners into the store first from 7:00 AM to 9:30 AM. Then, the general public will be allowed in at 10:00 AM.

I am all excited about running this race for the first time! I’ve run many races, including marathons and half marathons, but this is the first Seawheeze for me! I’ve always volunteered for the race but I’m finally running it this year.

I’m trying to decide what to buy…and what time I should start lining up in the special runner’s line!

Take a look at this preview. What would you buy??

Dearest SeaWheezer,The pressure is building in the Excit-O-Chamber. And every science type worth their sodium nitrate knows that the best way to let out pressure in an Excit-O-Chamber is with a little sneak peek of some Special Edition SeaWheeze gear.

The Special Edition SeaWheeze product will be available at the SeaWheeze Showcase Store in the Vancouver Convention Centre (999 Canada Place, West building, Ballroom A).This year—based on your feedback—we’ve created a special “runners only” shopping experience that will be hosted by the SeaWheeze Showcase Store.The Exclusive Runners Shop will be held on Friday, August 14, 2015 from 7am to 9:30am. Watch this space—we’ll be sending you a ticket to this exclusive event.The SeaWheeze Showcase Store will be open to the whole community from 10am to 8pm. The store accepts debit, credit and gift card but won’t be accepting cash this year. If you’re visiting from out of town, give your bank the heads up that you’ll be doing some shopping in Vancouver so it doesn’t put a precautionary hold on your account.Just a reminder, the SeaWheeze Showcase Store has a 15 garment limit per guest, and a limit of three items in the size and colour.

Last year, people started to line up at 4 AM and I expect people will do the same this year.

I did see a few things that I will buy. I was happy to see that the clothing is fairly different from last year. 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!

I’ve been going to the free yoga classes offered by Lululemon at their stores for years and I love these summer classes.

I went to today’s class, August 20th, 2014. Last week was cancelled due to rain today’s class went on as scheduled. It’s overcast but not raining.

You can see the Olympic Flame Cauldron in the background. There were hundreds of yogis today, but probably not quite as many as there were two weeks ago.
