I always take the stairs down, but not always take the stairs back up! Today, I walked down four flights, but after lunch rode the elevator back up. I did park at the farthest parking structure though, so I got in an extra 6 block walk too.

I've always preferred stairs, unless as someone mentioned it's a lot of flights. I'm always amused when I'm able to beat the elevator for a flight or two because it takes time to get to the floor, time to close the doors, time to start moving, time to stop, time to open the doors.
(And some elevators are just plain stuffy and less than well-maintained, to boot.)

Unless it's more than 4-5 flights and/or I'm carrying something bulky or heavy, always the stairs!

Unless I'm in heels or am carrying lots of stuff or have to go up more than 4 or 5 floors, I take the stairs. Even if I'm in heels, I'll often take stairs if I'm only going up a floor or two.

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.
Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

I always always take the stairs. I have a few classes on the 4th floor of one of the buildings and I'm one of only a few people in my cohort that doesn't wait for the elevator. I don't get it because I usually get to the top before them! People are strange sometimes... lol

Usually the elevator because my knees aren't the greatest
PS: coming from Detroit....never would take the stairs in a parking structure, that is usally where people got mugged.
Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

If I'm in heels, it's the elevator for me. Luckily, I rarely wear heels.
You are worth it!
It's not a matter of preference for me. Due to the bad condition my legs are in, stairs are unsafe right now.

I made a choice in the parking structure.. I used the stairs to walk down instead of the elevator.
What would be your choice?
Do you use the stairs? Or prefer the elevator?
