I Don’t Want To Be Judged… So I Need To Stop Judging Others

I noticed myself thinking unfair thoughts while in the stairwell during those two workouts, so I’m calling myself out on it, because I need to stop. I need to shift my thinking. Read the rest of this entry »


Stair Training Has Resumed…and I Really Need Your Advice

August 12, 2015

I had a very nice two-month hiatus from stairs, but now that’s over. I’m back in the stairwell! Training began last week. I’m not quite ready to share my entire fall racing schedule, but the first one will probably be the Stair Climb for Los Angeles, in the 75-story US Bank Tower in downtown Los Angeles (more on that in a future post, but here’s my recap from last year’s race). One of the cool things about this race is that they arrange training sessions in a neighboring skyscraper, which is awesome, because the best place to train for a stair race is on stairs!

I wasn’t planning on last night’s workout being a record-breaker, but it was. I love a nice surprise! Especially when, as I mentioned in my last post, I’m getting back on track after a less-active-than-normal week. My successes last night were in the stairwell of the Wells Fargo Center downtown:

My FIFTH Downtown Skyscraper!

August 11, 2014

I’ve now climbed the stairs in FIVE different skyscrapers in downtown Los Angeles! I added the fifth to the list just the other day, when I attended a training session at the Wells Fargo Center, which reaches 55 stories above the ground.
