DARKAFAERIE~I hope you are able to do it next year. I didn't go this year but am thinking next year would be good. It's run by a great group of people, too.

This is the first I have ever heard of this event but I must say...It just amazes me how awesome people can be! My cousin has CF and I know that she is always thankful to people such as yourselves. I believe I will come back to San Antonio just to do this challenge next year. Thank you all for having participated!

ITSMYLIFE2~It took us 15:40 to get up there and 33 minutes total up and back down to the ground.
We weren't rushing, just putting one foot in front of the other and focusing on breathing. Both of us trained aerobically about 5 x week at that point but we didn't get much stair climbing practice. Everyone just goes at their own pace and there is room at each landing to rest if you need it. Here's a link to my blog on it:

And here's a link to Teresa's blog. She included lots of firefighter pics emoticon

I'm with you. I want to lose some more weight and see a drop in blood pressure before I take on something like that. I think that falls into the category of trying to do too much too soon. The hill at Eisenhower Park is about my speed right now. Next year, that would be fun. Thanks for the info!.

Wow that would be a big accomplishment! Congrats on doing such a good thing. I think I would require some training first :) How long did it take you to finish last year?

It's next weekend. A friend and I did it last year and we met up with Teresa (Livestrong2010). Entrance fee is $25 but you also have to raise $50 to participate though it is for a good cause. There are lots of firefighters there and they go first in full gear then the runners & climbers followed by the climbers only. Here's a link if anyone is interested.

I had exactly the same question. Was not on the team this time last year...care to elaborate?

Remember that this road we are on is a journey - not a race. No one ever achieved a healthy body and mind over night.
