    It wasn't the big, bad wolf who was huffing and puffing on Tuesday.

    It was the 300 or so crazies who chugged up the stairs for the 31st Empire State Building Run-Up.

    News4's Cat Greenleaf was among those who accepted the challenge of running up 86 flights of stairs, 1,576 steps in all.

    Germany's Thomas Dold won the men's division for the fourth time in a row. He finished in 10 minutes, 7 seconds.
