My attitude..66,440 stairs..20+ hrs

In the post written day before yesterday about doing the stairs tomorrow at Amicalola Falls, I purposely used the word attempt and not the word goal. At this point in my life, I don’t like what the word “goal” does to me. This is an attempt to do the stairs 55 times in one day. I really would like to do it, but if I decide at some point that I want to stop, I will do just that. I will stop and I will be fine with it.

This is a picture from a while back of me on the stair system at the park.

I am looking forward to the attempt.

You can do it too

I believe you can try and do anything you can dream up. It doesn’t even have to be what most people would call realistic. Try it anyway and why not. Everybody always says why why why?

Why not ??

Rocky Balboa’s Inspirational Speech To His Son

The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!

66,440 stairs, this Saturday

In July of 2011, I drove to Amicalola Falls State Park. I began going up and down the stairs at 4 o’clock in the morning. It was the final goal I had set with 4 others, 5 years before. There are 604 that go down beside the waterfall. In my count, doing them one time means 604 down, and 604 up. 1208 stairs. I did that 50 times and it took me 17 hours and 18 minutes. That is 60,400 stairs.

Saturday July 26th 2014, I will attempt to do them 55 times and at that point I may go further, depending on how I feel. That will be 66,440 stairs. That will take at least 19 hours and 3 minutes.

Why am I doing this ??

Because I care. I care about caregivers and what they’re going through.
