In Asheville, North Carolina, there's a guy named Walter Beals, who recently lost a ton of weight by climbing stairs on his lunch break. He used to be about 440 pounds. Then he started climbing the stairs at the courthouse where he works, and lost 170 pounds. So he's down to about 270 now. He walks up eight flights . . . takes the elevator back down to save his knees . . . and then does it 12 more times. Which is like walking to the top of a 100-story building. He decided to change things up--to try to figure out how many flights of stairs it would take to reach the top of Mount Everest...then he decided to try to figure out how many flights it would take to get up to SPACE!! He finally accomplished that this week--and when he did it, he wore an astronaut suit and everything.
As a bonus--he met a gal online named Susannah, who thought it was cool that he was climbing up all those stairs and asked if she could join him...now they're a couple!!
Below, there is a goofy video with him and a friend on a local news show, juggling. He's a good dude.
