Empire State Building Run Up 2013

Having run a half of dozen marathon and a several half marathons, I was looking for a new challenge.  I decided to whim to enter the lottery to do the Empire State Building Run Up.  Seeing how only a couple hundred of the thousands of lottery entrants actually get to do this crazy race, I did not think my chances were too good that I would be selected.  I "lucked out" and got it.  The ESBRU is a stair climb up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building.  86 floors, 1576 steps.  After being accepted, I really had to question my sanity for wanting to do this.
