run vancouver

At last weekend's BMO Vancouver Marathon, over 15,000 runners laced up and took on Vancouver, from the seawall to Stanley Park. Personal bests were crushed, new goals were set and at least a hundred new cowbells were broken in.

I like that Lululemon has joined the ranks of Nike, Addidas, UnderArmour in running apparel. Look around the start-line at any major road race and there are lots of women (and men) clad in colourful Lululemon clothes :-)

Thanks Lululemon!! Your Cheer Station gave the chills when I ran past. Can’t thank everyone enough for all of their positive energy….I was wishing you would magically reappear at 18 km when my energy was starting to drop :-) Your team is AMAZING!!

This was my 5th 1/2 marathon and you guys have been at every one of them! BUT this cheer station was beyond words – you really gave me the kick in the pants that I needed with all 200 voices there. Thank you so much. Honestly, it was incredible. I can’t wait to run Vancouver on August 11th
