The Big Climb

The Big Climb is a yearly event to raise money for leukemia research. It is a race up the Columbia Tower in downtown Seattle. My son, Ben came in 3rd place this year. I'm very proud of him. He's coughing a little after the race so I realized that it isn't all that healthy to race up to the top of the Columbia Tower with the bad air quality in a stair well. I said he should race with oxygen or that they should make sure that fresh air filled the stair well during the event. Otherwise, it is like racing in a city with the worse air quality and pollution. Fresh oxygen is important when you tax your body to the limit.
