As I mentioned before, I'd be interested in helping with the fitness aspects of the Mt Rainier climb. I think most of the people signed up for Mt Rainier have a pretty good fitness base, but might benefit from some more specific training- legs, lungs, and core.
I can't remember if I mentioned to you at the Rainier meeting, but I contacted the facilities manager at UB about using the indoor stairs around Alumni Arena for training. The manager said we can use the stairs/track inside Alumni Arena for $5 per person per month. My thought would be to post 3-4 meetups(maybe every Wednesday) probably in Jan or Feb targeted at the Mt Rainier group, but open to anyone. Mt Rainier climbers could wear packs, if desired. I just wanted to run all this by you and see your thoughts before I post anything on Meetup.

This event repeats every Wednesday until April, 2014.
We will move outdoors in the Spring.
The actual climb is described HERE.
Pat..... you need to fixup what I started. What other hours is the facility available? How do we pay for this?
