Fight For Air!

I'm back again!

Last weekend we got to participate in the American Lung Association's Fight For Air Climb again. This is our third year climbing and we always have a great time. For those of you not familiar with this event, its held at the Wells Fargo building down town (for one day we overlook the evil overlord-ness that is Wells Fargo) and the point is to climb to the top, 23 floors, as fast as you can. For me that was 10 minutes and 24 seconds. My fastest time yet! But I still didn't even register on the to 20 women my age with that time, I think some people were coming in with like 5 minutes and less. One little boy on our team did it twice and his fastest time was just over 5 minutes and he was only 10!

Here are some photos from the "after party".

Spencer is the coordinator for this awesome climb, and one of Nik's best friends. Thanks for getting us involved Spencer!
She is so cute! And she even posed for me! This is Spencer's wife Jessica and she volunteers at the climb every year. I think this is Jess's second time volunteering while pregnant too!
Nik is acting like a frog in hopes of getting a smile out of Spencer and Jess's daughter L. It didn't work...Nik did the climb in just over 6 minutes.
Go Lisa!! She climbed 10 times!! I'm sure she won't appreciate me posting this, but I had to document her progress.
Aren't we cute? John Stockton and a little Devil! Nik won first place in the costume contest again this year! John Stockton is a go-to look for Nik I guess.
I just love this picture of L.
Two awesome ladies on Team Slingshot!

He finally got a smile!

Also, love the shorts.
