Getting Ready // SeaWheeze Half Marathon 2016


I finally booked my plane ticket to SeaWheeze 2016. For those that aren't familiar, it's a half marathon put on by lululemon in Vancouver, Canada. I've run the race twice before and I signed up for this year's five days after having our son Samuel. Crazy, I know.

The thing about SeaWheeze is that everyone wants to go. They sell out in literally minutes. Rob really wanted me to have something to look forward to and a reason to get back into training. So he will be staying behind and keeping the kiddos! I can't even remember the last time I traveled alone, I cannot wait.
The first time we ran the SeaWheeze, August 2013,  we were newly weds (January 2013) and I was 4.5 months pregnant. We had a blast, but running a half marathon pregnant isn't really as fun as one might think ;) The second time I ran SeaWheeze, August 2014, Rob was deployed and Max was 8 months old. It was my first half since having a kiddo and it was so empowering.


So this coming SeaWheeze, our second kiddo Sam will be 11 months old and I'm hoping to race my fastest half marathon, time to beat is 1:54:32. I love the city, this will be the longest I've spent in Vancouver, so I'm hoping to venture out of my comfort zone and try some new things.
