what is one of your biggest passions?

My biggest passion is being outside. Whether I am hiking with my family, or riding the trails, I love being out outdoors! I’m only inside to update my Facebook status.

where is your favourite place in the world?

My favourite place in the world is Vancouver, BC… my home town (wooo hoooo!). I have traveled to a lot of different places around the world but I have to say the people, scenery and lifestyle is at its best here. Vancouver living means beach side to mountains in 20 mins. There are no shortage of activities to keep you outdoors, whether its hiking the Grind, running the seawall, or paddling in the ocean.

a goal you’ve achieved that you’re proud of?

Last year I completed my first 100km trail race just outside San Francisco. It was a lofty goal, and quite a bit further than distances I had completed in the past. I spent 5 months following a pretty intensive plan over the winter logging some big miles in the rain. The race day threw me a few curve balls but I was happy with my race and completed my goal in 13 and half hours. It was my most difficult athletic accomplishment to date but the goals keep getting bigger now that I’ve completed this one.

what gets you up in the morning?

Literally, my children. I have two great boys. One two-year-old and one three-month-old. Waking up and playing with my kids is my favourite thing in the world. By 10am on a Saturday I feel like I need to take a nap! I can barely keep up with my two-year-old. Every day they are both learning something new and it makes me appreciate my great life.

what is your favourite way to sweat?

My roots are in mountain biking and trail running. I grew up racing my mountain bike and switched over to running in the past years. Combining my love for the outdoors and passion for sweating, I am in my element doing what I love most! Throw in some mud and rain and you have a perfect outing.

how does your role elevate lululemon?

I recruit and help hire some of the most amazing talent around! Each and every person who joins lululemon brings a new level of energy and inspires their surroundings to make us even better at what we do. I feel privileged to be one of the people here who can share the lululemon story with the world. If you love living in greatness and want to elevate the world… call me!

Love it! Great interview with a stellar individual. That Miwok 100k was so much tougher than he can elaborate on here. It was an amazing accomplishment in some of the worst race conditions they had ever seen at the event!

You’re a rock star Jurgen!
