Last week, our family took a day trip to Bisbee. Even though it is only a little more than an hour from our house, we had never before made the trek. The drive itself was beautiful with scenic mountain views and rolling desert plains. The town of Bisbee had first piqued my interest a couple years ago when I heard about a unique 5k race that is held there every October. At the time, I was pregnant and not about to train for a 5k. The Bisbee 1000 Stair Climb actually became my post-pregnancy goal last year as an incentive to get back in shape. Unfortunately, I became injured during my training and was unable to participate last year. I am hoping that with an increased focus on corrective exercise, I will be able to train and compete in this year’s race. The race is actually a 5k plus 1000 steps, making it 4.2 miles in total. The money raised for the stair climb goes to the organization “Save Our Stairs,” a non-profit group committed to preserving the historic stairs that serve as roads for many in Bisbee.
We even found a cowboy.
