You must be nuts, to run like that!

What am I talking about when I say, You must be nuts, to run like that..?

I Love running.

But there are just some things I won’t do.

Take for example, the vertical run up the Empire State Building in New York, just this past Wednesday night.

I mean, talk about confined spaces and the fear of getting trampled. I think I am just too claustrophobic to take on this challenge.

We are talking jostling approximately 600 other runners to speed up 86 flights of stairs, with a total of 1,576 steps, starting at the lobby and finishing at the observation deck. Apparently the run used to be held in the mornings, then they switched it to evenings to accommodate more folks joining.

Isn’ that mad? I would prefer them to restrict the numbers! Yet it happens every year.. and successfully too. I think I’d only ever do it, if I were very fast, and always at the head of the pack. No thanks to stairscase B.O. and all that back lash of sweat into my pretty face. I know they have it in KL too ( the KL Tower International Sunrise) , but it doesn’t matter which city they hold it, it still freaks me out.

Call me weird, but I’ll pass!

Are there any running activities that you will not do?

Leave a comment.. Cheers!

    I’ll happily run…but will skip the stairs. The fear is to fall and knock off my 2 front teeth!
