2511 runners at the Willis Tower Skyrise in the USA (United States of Advertising).
7:00 start – 103 floors Willis Tower
9:15 start – 58 floors La Salle Tower
On both charity events I only stumbled over the finish line. In poor health, I could hardly keep myself later on my feet. Bitter were the 23 seconds loss of time compared to last year, which earned me only 10th place at the Willis Tower.
Neither coffee, beer or Bloody Mary tasted today at the after-party at La Salle Tower.
However, there was an up- lifting experience yet on that day with an elderly lady : “Because of your speech a few years ago , I stopped taking the elevator , walked the stairs , did more sport , lost 35 pounds and almost all my health problems are gone .”
I guess, at least on person is happy.
