Tackle the tower

February 9, 2011

Ahh another challenge for me recently was Tackle the tower.  It was an awesome challenge and a lot tougher than I thought it would be!  I spent some time on the stairmaster, but I don't think anything can prepare you for running up 38 flights of steps!

I did it and would definitely do it again!  My time.... 9:02.8 - since it was my first time I didn't have any expectations, but I had secretly hoped for under 10 minutes.  Now next year my goal of course will be to beat this years time.

The most amazing thing was talking with some of the fire fighters who also tackle the tower.  These men tackle the tower in full rescue gear.  They let me hold just the oxygen tanks which are about 50 lbs alone and I about dropped them.  Absolutely amazing watching them!
