I guess I must be breaking out of my "too scared to try something new" shell, because I think SPADABEK has enticed me enough to want to try the Trek to the Top challenge Saturday, February 23, 2008. This is a stairclimb to the top of the First National Bank Tower in Omaha, which consists of 40 floors and 870 steps. The tower extends 633 feet into the sky and is the tallest building between Denver and Chicago. There is a competitive division and a recreational division. SPADABEK and I are interested in putting a SparkPeople team together to participate. We don't care if you're fast or slow, we just want to encourage others to challenge themselves with something new!
The registration fee is $45, and each participant will receive a t-shirt, a medal upon completion, a commemorative towel and a gift bag. Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female in the competitive and recreational categories and to the top corporate team. Food will also be provided in the lobby after the race.
Please post on here if you're interested, as we haven't actually registered the team name yet. Space is limited, so we are going to register soon. Registering will be the commitment I have to make, since that makes it harder to get scared and back out! SPADABEK did this challenge last year and has been great to answer my questions about it.
