Hustle Up The Hancock 1632
Chicago IL
5 (60-69)
Joined team with Liana to get same start time. Seemed a lot more chaotic than other climbs. More turns and congestion on the stairs. Good shirt and finisher medal. Expensive to park. Had lunch at Gino's East with team plus Matt & Mara.

Tackle The Tower Ultimate Challenge (3 Climbs) 2040
Oakbrook Terrace IL
1 (60-69)
Was hoping to get at least one under 6:30 and under 20 overall. Actually got faster with each climb. Award based only on first climb even though I was faster for the total time. Shirt with finisher medal. Don't know if I'll do this one again.

Very dry because of the outside temperature (-2°). Felt a little better than after the 1st climb but lots of coughing.

About a minute slower than last year - stuck at the end of the event. Almost no refreshments. Out of my size shirt (again). Could taste a little blood after finish. Coughing not as bad as last year. Had to wait to get out of parking deck due to late start.

Incredible time! Started early (8:48) because lots of no-shows. Almost ran the first few floors. Was able to keep pace of 5 floors/minute. Really hard breathing at the top. Could taste blood after finish. Wow!!

Go Vertical 2109

Second time seemed more work. Stairs seemed narrower, passing was more difficult, cheap shirt but finisher medal. Very little in terms of refreshments, no action photos.

First Stair Climb (80 stories) - former Amoco Building. Really exhiliarated by the experience, faster than I thought possible. Good steady pace, may try using two hands on the rail for more propulsion. Need gripper gloves.
