Stairs, please!

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?

    I think running up the stairs of the Empire State Building sounds like fun! I'm bummed you didn't get into NYC half....

    You've really had a busy year. I'm incredibly impressed that you went out on your own and were able to buy your own piece of NY. Congrats on your extreme tenacity in getting that done. It sounds like your running has fluxed over the months as well; I can see how that would happen. You have some incredible goals for 2010, and I am certain that you will achieve them!

    Trying again! I think you're going to have a blast heading up 86 flights of stairs! I hope you get a t-shirt at least. :-)
