Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Shorts

I finally, finally got my lululemon seawheeze half marathon shorts this week.  Apparently lululemon shipped them using fedex, who attempted delivery way back on May 23rd but neglected to leave a delivery notice card.  Unfortunately, I couldn't complain until June 15th (according to the seawheeze website).  After changing my address to my work address, I finally received them.  I haven't seen any detailed posts about the shorts, so I thought I'd share a few pictures.

Here's the front:
Here's the back:

As you can kind of see, they retail for $54.00, which sort of justifies the $128 half marathon registration fee.  Although the pattern is a bit childish, I think it's cute.

One thing that I haven't seen mentioned on any blogs is the adorable images on the inside of the waistband.  My camera is really old, but I did my best to capture some of the pictures.


They're cute little pictures of trees, bridges, runners, and the seawheeze logo.  Nice touch, Lululemon!

Here's a few photos of the shorts on, because it's not nearly as fun to see the shorts on a table.


The shorts are much shorter than something I would normally wear on a run.  Also, I think they make me look hippier than I actually am.  That being said, they were "free", so I'm not going to complain too much.  In the photos, I'm wearing the Push UR Limits tank and a pink pirouette headband.  If you don't have a pirouette headband and have long hair like myself, go buy one!  They're amazing for runs, because they don't move around and keep your hair in check.

Well, I am off to pick up my run package for the Scotiabank Half Marathon tomorrow morning.  I ran 20.65 km two Sundays ago in under 2 hours and felt great.  Hopefully that means my finishing time will be much shorter than my prediction of 2 hours 30 minutes.  This is my first half marathon, so I'm really nervous, but excited at the same time.

Is anyone else out there running the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon?

  2. You don't have to tell me how great Lululemon's satin headbands are. I own 5 or 6 of them. (Okay, maybe 7 or 8.) I ran my first half marathon in Houston in January wearing a Swiftly short sleeve shirt and a pair of their running cropped pants. Good luck with your half. I was really nervous, but my husband has run 12 marathons and a bunch of half marathons so he really helped prepare me well. I'm signed up for the Houston half next year too so I'm already trying to get back into training.
