Yesterday I joined my friends Gordon Schryer, Pat McKay and Rebecca Davis-Suskind at the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle for my second-ever Big Climb. The general gist: a 69-floor stair climb to raise money for leukemia & lymphoma research.
All in all it was quite an experience. There were roughly 6,000 stair climbers who participated in the Climb throughout the day. The energy was palpable and the survivors I met were quite inspiring. I did the climb in 11:32 — not bad for a skinny guy with chicken legs.
