Holy Crap, I’M GOING TO PARIS! I’m One of Three Americans That Were Selected to Race Up the Eiffel Tower Stairs This Year

January 23, 2018

Bonjour, je m’appelle David, et je vais en France!

I’m so honored and excited to share some extraordinary news: I’m competing in my first international stair race, and it’s in one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world, the Eiffel Tower!

I’ve been sitting on this news for almost two weeks. I shared it on social media, but held off of posting it here until the race organizers published it on their website. And that finally happened today!
