We signed in and then waited for the store to release the map that we needed to find the checkpoints around Falls Church. We had one hour to visit as many checkpoints as possible.
They also emailed the map to our smartphones. We were all at a little disadvantage because neither Becky, Megan or myself hang out around Falls Church. So we did not know where anything was, we really relied on the map. Luckily Megan was a great map reader/runner.
We took off and headed to our first spot to collect some raffle tickets.
It was really hot out..did I mention that?? I am not really good at running in the heat. So it really was a run/walk kind of night. We didn't hit all of the stops, but we did hit the slip n slide stop.
That was the best check point ever! Although I did learn that small children are much better at a slip n slide than I am! We knew we were not going to hit all of the check points so we headed to the area that had some more relatively close.
When it was coming up to our cutoff time of 7:30 we headed back to the store so we could place all of our raffle tickets in the bin.
They had some great prizes up for grabs. Oh how I love a good raffle. Hopefully we had one of the winning tickets.
All of those tickets and not one a winner. Oh well we had fun. Maybe next month we will be a winner. :)
