I did it! This morning I successfully climbed the stairs of the CN Tower, clocking a very respectable time of 27 minutes, 12 seconds. Let me just say, it was exhausting. I'm still pretty tired, 3 1/2 hours after completing the climb, but I feel so good. I'm proud of myself for doing it and my goal is to make this a yearly event and to work on lowering my time.
But the most important thing about the climb was all the money that was raised for United Way. It felt so good to contribute to that and to see so many other climbers out today, contributing their energy and fundraising efforts.
What a great day!
