I was surprised to pass by some pretty heavy people, about 250 pounds. They were just standing at the turns in the stairway, apparently in no hurry to keep going.



Oh, it's a charity event. I assume their goal is climbing to the top in exchange for donations received, not doing well in the race.

It seems likely. As I recall the elevators at the Strat tower do have buttons and indicators for various stops.

I wish I could see a full list of times but as far as I know they were only published for the top 50.

As Buzz wrote, the full times are posted at www.hallucinationsports.com.

Out of 352 climbers I came in 73rd. So, that would put me in the 21st percentile. Not bad for my first time. The slowest person in the top 50, which advance to Sunday, had a time of 11:50, 51 seconds faster than me.

Somebody was asking about the slowest time. That was 1:02:37.

Have you seen me?

I'd be hoping to not bail out and to not come in last....

No worries.

With motivation provided by the Wiz and Hotblonde,
should be no problemo.

Oh, wait...

I just went on www.hallucinationsports.com. It seems the 4th member of your "dream team" was the second to last finisher.

Ironic.

When I said I merely didn't want to be last, I didn't realize....

I need to start training now, but I can almost guarantee I will finish no lower than 2nd in my age group. And I am willing to bet on it. LOL
