So this past weekend I crossed something off my bucket list.. I ran my first half marathon! I took the ferry over to Vancouver and got ready for the most fun weekend!
As far as firsts go, this one was amazing! I ran the seawheeze. It's an event hosted by Lululemon, and they really pull out all the stops! This event included heaps of awesome swag, and lots of yoga as well as a great concert by Capital Cities to boot!
It was such a beautiful route! Over 11kms of the run was waterfront. Stunning! And part of the race took me right past my old apartment. So it really was a trip down memory lane for me. It was so amazing to be a part of something so big, and with so much encouragement! Quite a few of us from the Island went together, and it was so awesome to share this experience with friends. xo I stayed in beautiful English Bay, which was perfect as it was walking distance to the race... and it just so happened to be across the water from my old digs. Oh nostalgia!
All of those tents that you see is for Bard On the Beach. And the tall building you see peeking out of the trees to the left is my old place! It's the only tri-pod looking building in Kits. The route took us down this street in front of where I'm snapping the pic too.. Oh so fun!
I'm pretty proud of myself, and I really had the best time! Registration will be opening for next year's seawheeze on Sept. 10th! This one sells out fast, so if you want to run it register first thing! I promise, you'll love this event! xo
In fact, I had so much fun with it that I'm registering for another half that's taking place here in Victoria in October! I'm so looking forward to having my hubby and little man there to cheer me on this time.
Now to try to find that routine we're all lacking ;) Tell me, how was your weekend? xo
