Stairclimb Recap

Just a quick Summary of our Stairclimb last Saturday.

Dylan did a great job! She conquered all 1500 stairs in just over 13 minutes; good enough for 17th place Overall. She stayed focused, didn’t go out to fast, and didn’t miss a step. Here is how she finished the Stairclimb (chase)….

She doesn’t even look tired does she?

Yes, since she was under the age of 12 a parent or guardian had to run with her. And if I look a lot more sweaty than she does its because I just finished the Stairclimb course right before she took off.

Yes I ran the course by myself first to see what kind of wind I have left in my lungs. I got about half way around the coliseum and thought this is crazy! I have to finish this and then try to keep up with a very energetic Dylan as she does her thing.  ~ My legs still are tight and sore!

I should have thought of a better strategy before my race..

We were even joined by some local celebrities doing the Stairclimb

Most importantly it all was for a great cause….fresh air, healthy lungs!

Our team raised $650 for the Climb For Air Stairclimb, thanks in a large part to Dylan. That was part of the $34,265 that the Stairclimb raised for the Lung Association. Sadly the Lung Association did not hit there goal of $45,000. We may have to enter the 5K Run For Air in the fall then. But Dylan did her part!

Thanks again everybody for your interest, support, generosity and love!
