Not the Normal team lemon run club

Every Tuesday evening since February Kristin and I have been going to lululemon Walnut Creek to lead the weekly run club we put together.  It’s been a great couple months, lots of hard work but mostly a TON of fun!  There have been dark runs, rainy run, hot runs, but they all have been amazing getting people out the door to move!

Tonight I had my normal run club routine planned when Chris texted me that he wanted to go – he has never been!  I had planned on running before hand, but decided to take advantage of him wanting to join me and went and picked him up.  We got to the store and things were the normal procedure… sign in, announcements, then running!

Kristin and I were in the back of the pack sweating away in the 90+ degrees, very much looking forward to the lemonade stand that we were told was set up at the 1.5 mile turn around.  We were getting close and we started to hear cowbells, then we heard screaming, then we saw the signs…

Aron and Kristin



I was semi-in shock not knowing what was going on, but it didn’t take me long to figure it out.

Of course we said yes.


We are both so excited and honored to get to be a part of such an amazing company and store!  We have so many ideas and can’t wait to make run club even better. 

I am SO EXCITED to get to share this with Kristin too.  We have had such an amazing year so far, have had so much fun together, and I can’t wait for our adventures to come.


Definitely not what I was expecting when I headed to run club tonight!

  22. Mollyberries June 15, 2011 at 6:55 am #

    So awesome! I love how Lululemon does this sort of thing, it’s basically like a marriage proposal! Ha! :) I can’t wait to read your stories about this new adventure!

  23. Alisa June 15, 2011 at 7:30 am #

    That’s so cool but what does that even mean? I just assumed you were already some sort of run club leader or founder or something. You should definitely tell us what this means/entails.

  24. marlene June 15, 2011 at 7:34 am #

    AWWW what a nice surprise and fun way to ask you! Congrats to you both – well-deserved!!!

  25. kristen June 15, 2011 at 7:37 am #

    Ohhhh I like the sound of this! Next post will be what this means…….I have no idea, but I know I’m slightly jelous.

  26. Kristen (inspiredbydooce) June 15, 2011 at 8:09 am #

    Yaaaah! I love that they surprise people with stuff like that. I can’t wait to read all about it. And all your raving about the run club has inspired me to check out my local lululemon running club. It isn’t far from my place and I keep meaning to check out the group runs- now I will for sure.

  27. rene June 15, 2011 at 8:15 am #

    Congratulations – what a fun way to get the message across!

  28. Mary June 15, 2011 at 8:24 am #

    That’s SO awesome! Congrats!! :)

  29. Lauren June 15, 2011 at 8:31 am #

    Did you see? Lulu now has cycling stuff! think you guys should start a summer night ride, Kristin can use my old bike. Congrats! glad I could make it out!

  30. michele June 15, 2011 at 8:33 am #

    That is so awesome!! how do you start a run club? I’ve always wanted to satrt one, but have no clue what to do. Do you have to be certified or anything?

  31. Jen June 15, 2011 at 8:48 am #

    Congrats Aron! I cannot think of anyone more deserving :) And such a cool way they asked you, too!

  32. Lauren June 15, 2011 at 8:50 am #
