Yeah, last year is was the stairs, from lobby to top, in all 5 host hotels.  Over the course of the weekend.

Yes, this is what one person suggested.  I think they were talking about crossfit also.
  I just wanted to recreate the event that I accidentally caused a couple years ago.
1 stairwell, 1 event, booze or no booze(doesn't matter really).

This is either going to be absolutely amazing or the worst thing to happen to Atlanta since Sherman came through.

OMG! I almost have to participate in this train wreck of an event ... or at least come watch and take embarrassing photos of people while cheering them on! Sounds legendary  8)

lol It will definitely be one of those things. :P

I would be interested in at least seeing this go down. It does sound like fun though...

I just keep seeing that scene from Mad Men where Don got Roger drunk, fed him raw oysters, then marched him up multiple flights of stairs.

*sploosh!*

Ugh.

I might try this... sober...

I really think I'm going to make this happen now.
Even if it's just Trathor, ConfusedMortal, and myself...

Sounds like there is an actual interest in this, and people may join in when they see us getting ready for it.  ---  I mean, anyone can try it, and just stop when you don't think you can go any further...(hell, there's no guarantee I'll even make it, even though I've done it before)

I really don't think I'll be taking any shots on the way up though.  That sounds like a horrible idea.

Turning this into an "I Survived" challenge and including all 5 host hotels could be pretty cool. A Quinqueathlon if you will...

i will take photos.... lol

I can't decide if this sounds awesome or terrible.  One the one hand a bunch of drunken nerds scrambling up the stairs is funny.  On the other hand, stairs and lots of them, and drunk people is kind of a recipe for injuries.

Well I suppose after completing this challenge we could probably go to Disability Services and request scooters, cause none of us would be able to walk. Ouch.

So your request for a stair run actually prompted me to do something. I have started to only use the stairs at work. I am on the 11th floor. I am trying to make my legs not hurt so much from all the walking at Dragon Con.

Awesome idea.  Stairs are harder than people think. 

This is me in the evening in a hotel in Sao Paulo trying to get more stair counts on my fitbit.

I keep telling you, put your fitbit in the dryer!  Or glue it to one of your kids.

Not to thread hijack, but did you make it to Rio de Janeiro  by any chance?  I have always wanted to visit there. Bucket list place for me and driveable from Sao Paulo.

A dramatic pre-enactment of the race.


Peter: Where are we?
Ray: Looks like the mid-teens.
Peter: Well, when we get to twenty let me know. I'm gonna throw up.

Vyvyan: What's a good thing for a hangover?
Mike: Drinking heavily the night before.
