top 5 cool runs

With marathon season in full swing, we wanted to take a step back from all the serious personal-best chat and up the ante in true lululemon fashion. Here is what we would consider some of the world’s most enticing runs, that is, those that focus on the fun factor first.

barefoot running: well-grounded or head-in-the-clouds?

No, I’m not auditioning for the role of Cinderella. She had the good sense to at least keep one shoe on. And no, I haven’t forgotten my shoes at home. They’re safely nestled in my trusty Effortless Tote. Yes, that’s correct – I have willingly elected to go running with naked feet.

the road to boston: kathleen pugh

In the third interview of our Road to Boston series, we caught up with Kathleen Pugh in her lead up to the big day. We chatted about preparation, motivation and running marathons at an 8-minute-mile pace. Kathleen’s story of how she came to run the Boston Marathon is as inspirational as it is touching. We got goosebumps.

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.

one cheer station at a time

The Honolulu team cheers runners on during the 37th Honolulu Marathon! It was the fourth-largest race in the United States and lululemon athletica Ala Moana was ready. Our crew came out in full force for the 37th Honolulu Marathon, an event attracting nearly 24,000 runners from Hawaii and around the world. On the morning of […]

race report: the philadelphia marathon

I was at the end of a long training cycle that started in June, and it was all about to come down to just over three hours, and then the season would be done. Elyse after her full marathon. Was I nervous? There were the normal pre-race jitters, but I tried to keep them at […]

when mind conquers matter

The amazing little athletes are ready to run at the Challenge Athletes Foundation’s annual San Diego Triathlon. I recently remembered why I love what I do, and even better I remembered why life is in and of itself is so precious. This past October our lululemon La Jolla team was given the job to lead […]
