I still haven't joined a gym so it is up and down the home stairs for me. I started at 5 mins a day last week and am bumping it up to 7 min a day this week. Talk about a great lower body workout... LOL!

I just sent you an invite to the private Spark The Stairs Spark Team.

Ok, I'm all signed up!

Guess it's time for me to get my booty started on a stair climber!

YAY Amanda! I am SO excited!

Did you register as "climbers, not timed"?

Once I get Collin on the bus, I'll get myself registered, too! I can't believe I'm going to do it!

Registration on the 16th then.

Just let me know when you've got the team on there and I will sign up.

I am starting my training this week with 5 straight mins of stairs... Up & Down, UP & DOWN!

HEY Greats!

Bigclimb.org now says that online registeration will start November 16, so we have a couple more weeks to wait.

But I'm here and I'm watching and as soon as it opens, I will register "Spark the Stairs!" for our second annual BIG CLIMB!

How many people will plan on wearing their SparkPeople shirts? I think it would be cool, at least for a team picture at the beginning, plus it makes it easier to find each other. :o)

I've started training too. I did 5 minutes on the stair machine at the gym last Wednesday (9 flights) and 6 minutes on Thursday (11 flights). Man, it kicks my ARSE and puts my heart rate into the stratosphere!

Last year I only made it to the 26th floor or so...I pooped out too early, but I saw a good excuse and grabbed it (going down with a fellow team members young daughter so she wasn't alone). This year I AM making it to the top! ALL THE WAY!

Yes, lets go with Spark The Stairs!

This year's team is going to be bigger & better!

There are some members on the Spark Washington & Spark Seattle teams that want to participate too.

I know you aren't on the Spark Washington team Tess, but once you register Spark The Stairs can you join long enough to post in the Big Climb thread? It is a Sticky Topic!

I am SOOOO there! I'll get the team registered as soon as registration opens. Are we still going to be known as "Spark the Stairs"?

And I WILL make it to the top in 2010! In fact, I'm re-joining 24-Hour Fitness and the Stair Machine for 60 minutes straight is the goal I am going to strive for!

Tempting...very very tempting.

Keep me in the loop, and I'll let you know what I decide.
