Feeling a little run-down? Follow Nina Kuscsik's advice, and climb out of that funk.
The Wall Street Journal reports today on the annual Empire State Run-Up--a race up the stairs to the top of the Empire State Building. Today, Kuscsik, the first woman to win the NYC Marathon, will join 349 others in a race to the roof.
While maybe a bit extreme for most of us, climbing stairs is a great workout. There is a group of employees at GSK in Philadelphia who climb the stairs from the 3rd floor to the 24th as a way to stay in shape. I joined them for the first time last week, and felt great after the climb. Hopefully I will stick with it.
Good health doesn't have to be about huge changes. Take the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator. Get off the subway at the station before your normal stop and walk the rest of the way.
Small steps--that way maybe you won't get discouraged. Good luck, Nina!
