(CBS) — Nik Wallenda says he’s happy his tightrope walk isn’t for a couple of days, given Friday’s blast of winter-like weather.
“Wow, what is happening in Chicago today? I’m glad I’m not walking today, that’s for sure,” he said at a media briefing.
The King of the Highwire has been in town since Thursday and says he’s ready to walk from Marina City’s West Tower to the Leo Burnett Building on Sunday evening. He says a lot of his training is about strength endurance, especially in potentially high winds.
