People were lined up at 10 am the previous day... ridiculous. A few people were getting spots in line to sell them to SeaWheezers. I hope they didn't sell any. Anyways, woke up at 3 am and got in line at 3:30 am this year. Again, ridiculous. I went in there not really having an idea of what I wanted... but pretty happy with my purchase. I got into the store at 7:30 am, and there were a few items 'sold out' (aka stashed in people's massive piles) already, like the backpack. I really wanted it, but pretty happy with my duffel bag.
Legacy runners received a clear bracelet while everyone else received blue ones. I'm going to be honest, I thought this was a pretty big let down because all weekend I thought it meant an extra surprise somewhere. But there was nothing. I just wonder why they gave the legacy runners a different colored bracelet? What was the purpose? They did have a pretty sweet dedication with the names of all of the legacy runners. I'm estimating around 300 people.
This time felt so much more congested than previous years... I go into this race knowing it's busy and not speedy, but it was just tough this year.

Josh and I finished together. I really wish they provided finish photos... that would make the race so much better. We both finished with a time of 2:24:18.
I think my favorite thing about SeaWheeze this year were the secret agents. They were hilarious!!! I wonder if they work for lulu, or if they're entertainers.
Not too sure if I'll sign up for the 6th year... I mean, I've gotta stop the streak at some point. But... I just love it so much.
