Yesterday I signed up for the Race up Boston Place which takes place on 7th February 2009 at the Mellon Financial Centre in Boston. It is a stair climbing event - 82 flights of stairs over 41 floors. There were 3 options: race competitively, running or walking. To challenge myself a bit, I chose 'running'. Then I went out and climbed some stairs. Wow, talk about exploding lungs! I am very excited at doing this and will post the training programme I am thinking about, as it might be useful to anyone thinking of doing a stair climbing event.
