She did it!

BB climbed 70 flights of stairs yesterday - to the top of the Renaissance Center in Detroit - to help raise funds for the Lung Association. It's not that she's a big supporter of the Lung Association, but it was a challenge she was determined to meet, especially since a large part of her motivation came from the fact that I said she couldn't do it. When she first told me about this event I responded by saying, "You can't do that." I thought it was completely crazy and somewhat dangerous - I was sincerely worried for her health. I can hardly climb four flights without a racing heart and heaving lungs. I can't imagine 70. 70! But she did it. Amazing.
