Tuesday night I went to Lululemon (yeah, I told you I’d do it!) to check out their run club. Lululemon Santana Row was having a social hour/Q&A session. No running shoes required! Thank goodness, because I was freakin exhausted! And they had cookies!!!
As per usual with Lulu, I made sure I had time to shop. And as per usual, I went a bit overboard. Hey, don’t blame me! It’s so easy to do!! I mean, come on, this is the company that I want to work for. Do really expect me to control myself in their stores? Pfft. Yeah right.
My loot? Thought you’d never ask!
A running dress?!?! YES!!! And it’s way more flattering on a curvy figure, if I do say so myself. So lightweight and comfy!!!
I don’t know how I never got the Run: Swiftly tank before now. Awesome. Seriously awesome.
The cutest and most flattering board shorts you’ll ever own. Each color is reversible to a solid and a print. I got the black simply because my fave bikini is all black. Matchy matchy.
A handheld with pocket for my short/short-ish runs.
And the piece that I’ve been wanting for a while now, the hydration belt! 3 bottles, iPhone carrier, reflective race bib holder. Yes. Heather’s running in style now!!
Before this shopping trip, I had no actual hydration system for my runs. Which is pretty important. So, really, it wasn’t all that hard to spend the bucks on both a hand-held and a belt Amphipod.
Anyway, back to the run club!
The Santana Row Lulu meets up on Wednesday nights for track work and Saturday mornings for long runs. Which has 2 drawbacks. (I refuse to say ‘problems’)
First, their schedule is set to coincide with the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon. So since my half is about a month before the SeaWheeze, the scheduling is a bit off for my training. And second, I teach on Wednesday nights. Greeaaaaaat. So I’ll only be able to do their long runs on Saturdays. I’m hoping that once the weather starts really heating up the time on Wednesday night gets pushed another hour back. Then, I could teach AND run with Lulu!! Yay!
This will be my first time running with a run club. . . I’m kinda scared for the people I’ll be running with. 😉 I’m really looking forward to it!
Do any of you run with run clubs? Formal or otherwise? Any suggestions on what to expect? How to behave? How to secretly pick a wedgie or your nose? 😉
