It doesn’t matter how you spell it – with an “i” or a “y” using a hyphen or not –it still is a word that instantly dissolves our confidence and our financial security. There are many links and suggestions about “how to cope with losing your job” or “how to make it through this recession or hard times”. Surely someone, somewhere has the perfect solution. Here’s a simple idea that might help you through hard times. This idea won’t save the house or make a cloudy day sunny, but it is easy, fun, beneficial, and has been recommended on television shows like The Today Show and CBS in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Okay, so I walked the Republic but hey — I was proud to make it up the 56 flights of stairs (that’s 1,098 stairs!) along with my colleagues Craig Koehler, Maro Lee, Kaylin Linke, Amanda Miller and more than 1600 other climbers.
The 3rd annual Anthem Run the Republic tower race took place in Denver on February 22nd. They raised almost $300,000 for the American Lung Association of Colorado, which will go toward helping to fight lung disease and to promote lung health. With the Republic Plaza being the tallest building in the Rocky Mountain West at 717 feet tall, I will attest to the fact that this climb makes you aware of your lungs in whole new way. It was fun and inspiring to be there amongst the climbers, volunteers and sponsors who gave of their time, money and lung power for this important cause. We all plan to do this again next year and beat our personal times. Stay tuned ….
