Okay, so here's one that has a few possible answers.  Please help me
to narrow it down.  Thanks.

A roughly 5-mile run at the bottom of a chasm gets it roughly one mile
closer to standing still.  About how high up would you have to meander
to catch the sunrise?

Any thoughts on this would be helpful in narrowing down my own.

My commenting privileges are turned off at the moment, so I'm posting up here. 

There are lots of races and "runs" of various sorts in the canyons
near the Sunrise Highway. The part that says "how high up would you
have to meander to catch the sunrise?" doesn't make as much sense if
it refers to an actual sunrise. It's possible to give a distance in
feet or meters or miles if you are going from a chasm or canyon up to
the Sunrise Highway. What's the distance to an actual sunrise? 93
million miles?

Just a thought.

I've done a lot of research and still can't find anything specific to
fit the question.  You're suggestion of the Sunrise Hwy makes complete
sense but I just can't confirm it.  I can't find anything to support
"the 5-mile run getting it one mile closer to standing still".
Thanks for trying anyway.  The search continues.  :)
There is no answer at this time.

I wouldn't be surprised if "sunrise" is a reference to the Sunrise
Highway, in southern California.

Hey Pink, 
Could you elaborate on your thoughts as to how it would fit the question.  
Thanks in advance.  :)
