It’s training time! For the 3rd year in a row, i’ll be “Running the Republic”. That means in February of next year i’ll be climbing 56 flights as fast as my little feet can carry me! I’ve averaged a little over 13 minutes each year – i’d like to kick some serious butt this year! I like this race because first off – it isn’t a “race”, there is absolutely no running involved! And second my parents have smoked for about forever, my co-workers smoke constantly and I want to do what I can to make sure research continues and we keep others from starting to smoke! Feel free to donate if the mood strikes!
