The subway stairs at Shijo Station help you count your calories (in reverse!), along with offering lots of inspiration for not using the escalator. It's good for your hamstrings, it says.
If stairs really burn .1 calorie each, then why am I not down to 100 pounds by now?
(Okay--you're not saying it but perhaps you are getting tired of hearing about weight loss. How about I start talking about the rainy season instead?)
