5 In race report/ run

lululemon run: twin k 15k in photos.

Two weeks out from Ironman Wisconsin, recovery mode is still in full force. Though there’s been some easy swimming and biking as well as a welcomed return to my yoga mat, there’s been zero running – and, won’t be for at least another two weeks. So, I was a little bummed to not pace the 8:30 group at last Saturday’s lululemon run: twin k 15k, but instead did the next best thing: volunteered at the finish line, one of the best places at a race.

It was a perfect September morning along Summit Avenue in Saint Paul… crisp and sunny with a hint of color change in the trees. Nick and I met up with some friends who were running (thanks for pacing, Sonia and Nick! And, hi, Julia, Jess and Amanda!), and I finally met a few twitter friends (hi, Anne, Megan and Nick!). Ami and Finley joined the fun, too, for Finley’s first official race. #futureironwoman :) 

In true lululemon fashion, the music was pumping and luon covered the course (the next SeaWheeze?). Race highlights: a drone, bacon station, dunk tank, mannequin high-fives and pint glass finishers “medals.” 

Check out the pics Nick took while biking along the course!

    Great photos! Isn’t the finish line the best place ever at a race?! I’ve missed lululemon so much since moving to a small beach town without it and this just solidified this!

    Between the leaves and the vibrant running clothes, the colours in these photos are gorgeous!
