Stairway to Heaving... some of my crazy co-workers have decided to Master the Met and I've let them talk me into joining them. Instead of your typical 5k, this is a Stairclimb event to raise money for the American Lung Association. So this means, that bright and early on Saturday, March 6, I will be huffing and puffing my way up 42 flights of stairs in the St. Louis Metropolitian Building!!! Our team name is Stairway to Heaving...I think this is so going to be true!

Here are two pictures from last year. They have a firefighter's competitive portion where they are in full gear and everything. This guy looks hot....
Then there is a competive and non-competitive portion of the race. This will probably be with me with the, "Is this done yet?" face:
Photo credit here and also click here to see more pics.
The only downside of it, is that we all paid a registration fee but in addition to that, we all MUST raise at least $100 and if we don't? Well, then they keep our registration fee but we don't get to climb!!! So please, if you can find it in your heart, or lungs, please click here and make a donation for me so when I get to the top and I've "mastered the Met" I can dance around like Rocky and know that you and I have helped the American Lung Association. And if you can't donate, then please leave me some words of encouragement.

Holy cow! That's quite a stair climb, but for a great cause! I think it's absolutely fantastic that you're doing this!
