Awesome Tweet from Ryan Hall

Ryan Hall is one of my favorite runners. He is fast, determined, and a follower of Jesus--all great qualities in my book! Plus I've met him (for some reason I didn't include that information in that blog, but I turned around while we were watching the athletes come in and say him; I said to my mom, "I think that's Ryan Hall!" She said I should go over and say hi, so I did) and he is a nice person. When I saw this on Runner's World this morning and it made me laugh, I had to share!

From Runner's World

I managed to get in 50 minutes on the step mill and 10×30sec curl w/8lb dbs, glute ham, crunch, and maybe others? Can't remember completely. Then it was off to the Cool Springs Galleria Mall for my cousin Lauren's 13th birthday party. She wanted to do a mall scavenger hunt, so a couple weeks ago Anna S and I met at the mall to plan. We put together the list and the rules, and Lauren invited the girls. We met at the mall, at 23 or so of us, with UJohn, Bennett, Caleigh, Carina, and I as the chaperones, one for each group of girls. Mine were Carlee, Lauren, Emma, and Allison:

They had to find the following items and list either the cheapest price or the most expensive (it was stipulated on their lists):

  • Ornament without Christmas colors
  • Sweet Pea body lotion
  • Anything with leopard print
  • Teal feather earrings
  • Winter coat
  • Medium-sized soda
  • Hi-top shoes
  • Shirt with yellow polka dots
  • L for Lauren luggage tag
  • Umbrella holder
  • Fuzzy socks
  • Belt with a bow
  • Alarm clock
  • Cowboy hat
  • ½ pound chocolate-covered caramel corn
  • Hat/mitten (or glove) set
  • Aviator sunglasses
  • Jeggings
  • Hoodie with butterflies or flowers
  • Find-It
  • iPad cover
  • Cherry-scented candle
  • Digital camera
  • Easter basket
  • Birthday card

My girls found everything on their list except the luggage tag, but they didn't find the best prices of everything and we ended up third after Caleigh and Bennett, who tied for first. Then we headed back to Lauren's house for dinner, present-opening, and Telestrations (telephone pictionary).

Twenty 12/13/14-year-olds can make a lot of noise!
