Stairs, please!

Well it seems my year of insanity has started with a bang. In a moment of haste, I submitted an application to participate in the Empire State Building run-up. Yes, folks, I will be going up 86 floors via stairs. Apparently, this is fun?! :)

Course Description: There are 1576 steps, for a total of 1,050 feet in elevation.  The stair width is40 inches and the length is 7.5 inches.  Each story has two flights of stairs, separated by a landing.  The length of a flight varies and there are six different flight patterns on the ascent. 

Love this. I love that I'm just going for it. After all, I did say I was going to make 30 count. Let's do this!

By the way, Boston training has started. 14 miles last weekend in sub 20 degree weather and crazy wind. Looks to be a repeat weekend. Game on!

No quit. Just getting it done. How about you?
