April 16th 2011- Survived CN Tower Climb Again!

I was up at 4:30 this morning for another CN Tower Climb for WWF Canada.

I ran up the steps for an excellent cause in a decent time; 11:23, 31-seconds off my personal best mark of 10:52. Despite being in decent shape, I am carrying a bit of extra weight around my belly. Carrying that weight up 144 flights is pretty painful.

My lungs are a mess right now. Four hours after I reached the top, I’m still hacking and coughing. My legs are fine though.

  1. Hi Peter! Congrats on the climb this year! Too bad I wasnt able to make it! There would of been a good battle on the stairs seeing my PB was 11:19 :)

    I was in Calgary racing up the tower their. 4:53 for 802 steps. I also did a five hour endurance climb. 28 laps in five hours.

    Looking forward to seeing you at another cn tower event! Take care!
