Support the Empire State Building Run-Up!

This Wednesday, February 4th, marks the 38th Annual Empire State Building Run-Up (ESBRU)!
The ESBRU is one of the world's oldest and most famous tower races which presents the challenge of running up 86 flights - 1576 stairs to the Observatory! There will be elite and novice runners from across the globe and Facebook at this amazing race - including my friend Dana Facchiana!

Dana is a fierce competitor in our Virtual Coast 2 Coast challenge, and I was excited to hear about her doing this challenge!   She submitted an essay for entry into the race and was selected from over 1200 other competitors for one of the few spots available.  I can not imagine the effort that it will require to complete this climb, but I know we all wish we could be there to cheer her on! So, to show our support and encourage her along the way, I challenge all of you to a Virtual Empire State Run To The Top on Wednesday!

Your Challenge is find your StairMaster, your stair well at work, or seek out an office building or library, and climb 1576 stairs!

And your mission is to post a picture of yourself doing the challenge and how many stairs you were able to complete during the day!  Many fitness trackers will count your stairs, or count on your own; logging your stairs should be easy.

This is a great way to not only build motivation for your hump day blues but also to show your support of Dana!

Who's in?
