Stacy ran her first half marathon last year and boy, I was so impressed over that. She was never really even interested in running until a few years ago and now it has become her healthy addiciton. And I hope some of it rubs off on me. I don't think it will. Stacy is very faithful when it comes to her training so I know she's going to be ready by May. I told her last night when she called me that it would take me 4 years to prepare for something like that. Not 4 months. She laughed. She thought I was kidding. I wasn't.
So, this morning I learn through the grapevine that Carina and Nick are going to do The Big Climb in March. Yikes. For those of you who don't live near Seattle, let me explain. The Big Climb is sponsored by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Last year there were over 5,400 participants that ran, walked, and well, crawled up the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle. That's 69 flights of stairs, 1,311 steps, 788 ft of vertical elevation. I wish I could do it. I don't think I will. But I am so proud that they are.
