This intrigues me on a few levels:
1) I’m not a runner and I’ve always envied people who train for marathons. I think this is something I might be able to train for.
2) The climb is April 5th. So far I’ve made it up the 13 flights of our building twice a day this past week. Tonight I did it two times back to back so I’m thinking maybe 63 flights is actually remotely possible.
3) If you make it to the top of the AON Center building, you’re outside on the roof of one of the tallest buildings in DT LA. When else are your going to have the opportunity to do that!?
4) It’s a fund-raiser for the American Lung Association.
So this is my goal– if by March 20th I can make it up the stairs of our building 4 x in a row, I’m signing up! If anyone wants to join me, let me know. And if indeed I do make this commitment I’ll post the link if you want to donate a dime or a dollar per flight.
