It’s The Climb

There is a man, neither old nor young, who uses the stair-stepper machine at the climbing gym.  I only see him on the stair-stepper, and I always see him on the stair-stepper.  He wears heavy boots and a weighted backpack.  He trudges alone, in the corner of the room, for hours.  He’s training to climb Mt. McKinley, the highest peak in North America.  “Hopefully,” he says.
