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!

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

There was not much at all in the mens section. I felt so sorry for the guys, some of them were really disappointed.

I’m sure that I’ll see a lot of the Seawheeze special edition items at the race tomorrow! Check out the photos of the runners online on social media and you’ll be able to see them, too!

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.

It was a beautiful sunny day but not too hot for us to do yoga.

Eion is an instructor who actually does the poses, not just talk us through them.

At the end of the class, he urged everybody to leave their mats and come together to the front.

As everyone stood up and came closer to the front, it almost seemed like a rock concert where everybody is trying to reach the rock star!

Again, we were lucky to get Whistler water! There was also O.N.E Coconut Water offered as well. Apparently, there was Rise Kombucha as well but they did not offer me any.

This was really great! It’s always such a treat to be taught by Eoin Finn! Thanks very much to Lululemon for offering this special summer nooner classes! I’ll definitely return to take classes from those star yoga instructors!

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 the third class, July 23th, 2015.

Here is a picture of the instructor, Christie. She has been a previous nooner yoga instructor and also taught a Seawheeze sunset yoga session last year! She’s very popular!
