I did "bop to the top" today with a friend. I've never done anything like this, not even a marathon. It's climbing 37 flights of stairs as quickly as you can. I'm athletic but I've fallen off the wagon lately and I've never been a runner. I thought that since this was short I'd be fine, I about died! It just was a reminder that I need to find the time and get back to it!

I did finish, which I was proud of, and my time was 13 min and 2 seconds. My friend did it in 8! The winner did it in 3!

Way to go. I just started running again. I haven't ran since my 5k in October.

Wow ouch, congrats! I've only done a 1/2 marathon as my longest race so far, and my legs were pissed off.

Thank you so much. I had to break a few times and there was actually a time that I thought I might not make it. What really got me through were the strangers saying "you got this", "almost there". It's amazing what that can do for you.

I am not a runner. I can't pace myself. But I've always wanted to do something like this. I may try a marathon some day.
