iMedia’s Christina Verduchi is set to run the Empire State Building Run-Up

When you think of one of New York City’s most famous skyscrapers, The Empire State Building, does running up the 1,576 steps come to mind? Well, for iMedia’s most recent addition Christina Verduchi it does!

ESBRUOn February 5th at 10:00pm, Christina will join over 700 runners in darting up 86 stories to reach the top of the Empire State Building. This race benefits both Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and New York Road Runner’s Team for Kids. 

Christina is fairly new to the racing world. After discovering of a serious health issue she had, Christina decided to start running in August of 2012, as a way to get in shape and remain healthy. Within 14 months she ran the New York City marathon. Over the past year and a half she has completed numerous races including the New York City marathon in November 2013, 7 half marathons, and even lost 70 pounds in the process.


So when I asked Christina what made her decide to put her name in the lottery for this year’s Empire State Run-Up, she responded:

“Since I started on this running journey, I have challenged myself to live life in a way where I do things that scare me and make things that seemed impossible before, possible. Running up the Empire State Building fit right in with my "impossible" challenges and I can't wait.”

Additionally, wondering how Christina will stay motivated throughout this ultimate uphill race, she gave me a sneak peek into her running playlist. Some of her top pump up songs include:
  • Jay-Z: Empire State of Mind (ironic, right?)
  • Katy Perry: Dark Horse
  • Kanye West: Stronger
  • Drake: Started From The Bottom
  • Britney Spears: Scream and Shout
Stay tuned for pictures from the greatest stair climber competition via iMedia’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Good luck Christina!
