I live in Taipei, Taiwan and we have the 2nd tallest skyscraper in the world, Taipei 101 (my own pic provided)
On June 5th they have a race, 2,046 steps to the 91st floor that I'll be doing...this being the third time.
My gym has one of those stair machines that is actually like a little escalator, so that's mostly how I'll train. My previous best time was 27 minutes. I don't know if I can beat it as I seem to have recurring bronchitis.
I'll try to make some video of some of it. Last will and all that.
