And that’s taking the stairs, not the elevator!
Last year I climbed 2,109 stairs/103 flights to the skydeck of the Willis Tower in Chicago. I had five weeks to train and I made it up all of the steps with a collection of fabulous firemen waiting to be in photos with me. Could be worse! Exhilarating! Exhausting! Here’s a flashback to last year’s climb.
It’s hard to believe that it’s time for me to start thinking about this climb again. Especially since I feel like I JUST caught my breath. This year, I have a little less than three months to train. Not quite as much pressure but I obviously want to beat last year’s time and raise more money for Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
For five weeks, I trained for the opportunity to get to the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower, the skydeck with the glass ledges, via the 2,109 stairs versus the elevator. It was a fundraiser for the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago that took place this past Sunday.
