Trek was awful and awesome and I plan on doing it again next year. I showed up at 830 and got registered and got my chip then went to stand in line until 915ish when I was allowed to start. I headed off up the stairs at a good pace and was at the tenth floor when I thought…this is pretty easy. At the 20th floor, I felt like dying and wanted to go back down (no elevator access allowed..I totally would have ended it right there). At the 30th floor, I was back on track and at 39 I pushed myself and ran up the last few. I finished in a modest 21.57..(which isn't first…but it's not last either). Next year maybe I can get it in under 15 minutes.
