By this time tomorrow Team Motion Starved will have climbed their way to the top of The Bank of America Building in San Francisco. We’ll be participating in The American Lung Associations, Fight for Air Climb. Sound tough? Not for us! We’ve trained hard and we’re ready to scale the tallest “climbable” building in our fair city.
At 52 flights, or 1,197 steps, this will be a piece of cake for our well-trained climbing machines. Why are we doing this? Because we can!
Meet Team Motion Starved’s Stair Climbers…
Zumi-Kazumi: ZK is a self proclaimed Nut. When asked if she actually likes exercise ZK reported, “I hate exercising. I wish having cocktails had the same effect as exercising.” ZK’s favorite way to climb stairs is two at a time. If you do the math, she’ll only be climbing 598.5 steps tomorrow. See you at the top KZ!
Super-Susan: SS and her cute little bob haircut have attended just about every single Saturday Stair Climbing Workout I’ve conducted. Rain or shine, in sickness and in health, SS comes to class and proudly works at her own pace. She never complains and when I’m not looking she even pushes the pace a bit. It’s my guess that SS will surpass her own expectations at this event.
Climbing-Kooka: CK is a workout monster! Often doing two workouts a day she’s completely transformed her body and mind in a little under 2 years. When asked if she actually likes exercising, CK reported, “No, I actually don’t like exercising, I love it! Sweating makes me feel alive.” That’s a winning attitude if you ask me.
This is me, Kelley: CK gave me an alias but I’m too humble to use it. It made me seem tough and strong. I am pretty tough and strong but don’t tell anyone. I’m the leader of Team Motion Starved. I’m the one who yells at the team to run faster and watch their form while I myself trundle along behind.
And there you have it. Now you know who you’re dealing with as Team Motion Starved scales the BofA. Wish us well and stay tuned for our post-race report.
p.s. For fun read my post-race report from two years ago. It’ll give you an idea of what we’re in for. “Do not crawl on the stairs.”
