Hustling up the Hancock
Each year over 4,000 people climb to the top of John Hancock Center to raise funds for lung disease research, advocacy and education. In 2011 over 2,500 participants indicated they or someone they know has been touched by a form of lung disease. Participants choose from two climbing categories–full climb (94 floors) or half climb (52 floors).
I have elected to do the Full Climb: this division is for the competitive athlete looking for the ultimate challenge of scaling 94 floors.
This race will be a perfect measuring stick in preparation for The Great Wall of China Marathon’s 5,164 steps.
The race takes place on February 26th, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois.
