My first (offical) half marathon: Lululemon SeaWheeze

14 Aug

Hello friends! It’s been a few days ’cause I was away in Vancouver, running the Lululemon SeaWheeze half marathon.

Vancouver is gorge, the weather was perfect, and as far as things to do, there’s a little something for everyone.

The half marathon itself was fab. It was my first so I don’t have much to compare it to but it was a freaking blast. Lululemon brought in great partner vendors (like Vega protein…yummers), the views were unreal, and the company wasn’t so bad either. One of my friends told me that there’s nothing quite like the high of crossing the finish line which I had laughed off, but she was totally right.

Let’s just say I’ve already signed up for the next and I can’t wait to beat my time significantly.

Back to Vancouver. It’s a stunner of a city and full of people who appear to wear spandex on the regular. No complaints about that.  We got a lot of working out in, but saved room for some other fun, naturally.

 After we registered, got all the free stuff we could grab and checked out the Lululemon Expo, we decided to enjoy the view and carb up with a watermelon cocktail and sweet potato fries.

We had an early night which included some stretching (and a little bit of dancing) in preparation.

We perfected our tree pose. Is this even a posture? Couldn’t tell ya.

Hmmm. If that’s not motivation I don’t what is.

    I have that Santa Monica Track Club tank too. Couldn’t resist it. Only yours is a much cuter color than white!
