every step

I went on my first run when I was 15 years old. My Aunt Violet had just died; she was old, it was expected but I had these feelings I didn’t know what to do with. I couldn’t cry, I didn’t really need to talk to anyone but I felt like I needed to do something so […]

goosebump city

The goosebumps started at the Boston Marathon expo on the weekend before the race. Never, never give up. Our Detroit ambassador, Sue (on the left), ran the marathon with her aunt Sue, who finished chemo 4 weeks ago. Canadian Josh Cassidy near the top of the hill, before finishing to break the world record in […]

marathon monday

Marathon Monday. To many, this phrase might not mean much, but here in Boston…it means everything. the super bowl of running For some, the Boston Marathon is the Super Bowl of running — the goal every runner strives to achieve. For others, it’s a day to celebrate — a major holiday where roads are closed […]

yoga. sweat. run. marathon.

The Boston Marathon is practically here. Saying we’re excited about being at the world’s oldest annual marathon is a minor understatement. We’re busy talking with ambassadors, training, doing yoga and making signs for our cheer station at Heartbreak Hill. Need a little inspiration? Here you go.

the road to boston: theresa ridgway

Theresa Ridgway lives life in the fast lane. She’s the ambassador at our Newburyport, MA showroom who has run 3:04 not once, but twice. (She also was the first person to answer all our interview questions.) Theresa doesn’t do yoga for a couple of reasons – one is that it means she has to put on the brakes. Luckily for us, she slowed down enough to share a bit of her story.

the road to boston: jayna henstorf

The 2011 Boston Marathon is days away. Jayna Henstorf is another ambassador who is packing her bags to take part in the fun. She’s excited to go to Boston for a few reasons. It’s where she spent her newlywed days and it’s the home of one of her favourite brunch spots. (And who doesn’t love a good brunch spot after a marathon? We do.)

the road to boston: gina dicello

Next up on the road to Boston is Gina DiCello, Rush Street ambassador and a real firecracker. We stumbled upon her blog before we met over email. Before long it became clear to us: we want to be her friend. See for yourself. You probably will too. (We’re pretty sure she’d happily have you over for dinner, share some training tips with you and send you home with a recipe.)

Read about her ridiculously large BHAG and how yoga has taken her training to new heights.

the road to boston: sue anne clark

The Boston Marathon is arguably the most iconic marathon. We’ll be there cheering on April 18th but in the meantime, we caught up with our Boston-bound ambassadors to get inspired before the big day. First up, Sue Anne Clark. We get along for many reasons, like the fact that when she’s not running, she’s EATING. (Yes, all caps. Her words not ours.) Sue Anne is a bit of a superhero. She has competed in over 75 triathlons – and she didn’t start logging them until she set a goal on her thirtieth birthday…

meet jenn on the road to her goals

   Meet Jenn, lover of marathons - literally and figuratively. We caught up with her after the latest Runner’s World photo shoot to talk goals. (She’s got plenty to say on the subject.) getting to know jenn Jenn Thiel is quickly becoming a familiar face. Not only is she an alumni ambassador at our Kitsilano store, she’s also the face (or […]

goal setting season starts… now!

With a new year comes new opportunities, and January is a perfect time to reflect on the past year and set new goals for the year ahead. Meet Linda Wong, our lululemon Robson St. ambassador in Vancouver BC, who spent 2010 recovering from a knee injury. In 2011, Linda’s ready to take on the running […]
