Ryan Hall Comes to Phoenix

Grinning ear to ear I met Ryan Hall at Runner's Den in Phoenix tonight.   My conversation with him was brief while he signed a poster and took a picture.  He asked me if I was training for anything and I explained the Women's half in November and had just run the half at Crater Lake.  I also told him I ran in his footsteps at Boston, although 3 hours behind him.  

Since there were many people milling around and waiting in line I couldn't ask him the gazillion questions  bouncing around in my head. I heard him reply to another runner who asked one question which I had been wondering about, did he run while he was there in Phoenix? He had run earlier that morning up in Flagstaff and got his running done.  You could tell he didn't want to run much in the Phoenix heat and I can't blame him. 

Happy Running!

I hope you were so kind to sign an autograph for him and his family!
One day he will be able to say: "I met Christina"!
