We Dare You To Share- Upload A Photo Taking the Stairs & Enter For A Chance to Win $400
United Healthcare has a new online community for women called Source4Women. This new community provides healthy living information on things like nutrition, exercise, health screenings and more. One of my favorite things they do is each month is an image upload contest where they dare you to do something and you can upload your image for a chance to win really awesome prizes. You may have remember the previous dares from December, November, and September that I’ve posted about here on Fit & Awesome.
Taking the stairs sounds simple, right? But when you take an elevator to go to work everyday or to get to an appointment or doctor’s office, it’s easy to forget that stairs are even an option! I remember when I used to work on the 4th floor of a building and taking the stairs was a quick and easy way for me to get my heart rate up in the middle of the day when I normally spend most of my time at a desk.
Another way to take the stairs is to make them your exercise for the day! Recently I went to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook here in Los Angeles. The top has a beautiful panoramic view of the city but to get there you have to take the stairs. 222 of them to be exact! Here’s is my pic I submitted to the contest:
There’s no better staircase than one in the great outdoors, right? That’s why I chose it. Here are some of my other favorite stair pictures from the gallery:
- Couple Hiking in the Woods
- Stairs at the Getty Museum
- Stairs at Smokey Mountain National park (and a pretty waterfall picture)
- Washington D.C. Stairs
- Oahu Hawaii Stairs
- Stairs Covered in Snow
I encourage…no, I CHALLENGE you to try and take the stairs this month whenever you can in replace of an elevator or escalator. Take a picture of the stairs you challenged and upload to the Source4Women gallery.
