What the H stairs???

What the H stairs???

After 6+ months of living in a 5th floor walk up, plus walking the escalators during my commutes, you would think stairs would be effortless. Not so much. All it’s done is add to some extremely tight calves. Last night I was seriously winded coming out of the subway – a far too familiar feeling.

I will conquer them. If for no other reason than their taunting me as I climb to the top panting while trying to pull it together and seem effortless in that NYC way.

Damn you stairs. I will be able to RUN up you with full victory…..Hopefully before it’s time to move out.
