File Under:
Phil Mickelson of Skyscraper Running

Maybe you heard something about the young go-getter who won this race up the Empire State Building. What you may not have heard is that last year, this guy had a bit of a disappointment in the race. According to Reuters:
Last year, Dold lunged in vain at the finish, falling to the pavement of the famous Observation deck on the 86th floor as he lost to Austrian Rudolf Reitberger in the closest Empire race ever.

Even worse, though, is that according to the article, Dold has lost three of his last six tower races by a step. All of this, of course, brings to mind one burning question: Who runs up a tower for recreation?
