Conquered the Rialto!

Wow, I can't believe that my team actually finished! We finished in 25 minutes! It was very hard work, the higher we got, the harder it was to breathe. I honestly thought it was impossible for a person to sweat in the middle of winter, but there we were drenched and dripping in sweat. Eeeeewwww!

I am fitter than I thought I was. I thought that after I climbed the last step in the 55th floor and crossed the finish line, I wouldn't be able to walk. But here I am, in front of my computer at school, putting in this entry (the lecturer is just blabbing in the background :p). I feel fine, really good as a matter of fact.

I believe I deserve to have a nice big meal for dinner and a long hot bath when I get home.

Thanks to Gary, Rebecca, and Geoff for joining me in this seemingly "idiotic" challenge. I think we did our company proud (my boss was quite happy to sponsor us for this event).

I am very happy that I have done something as physically challenging as this. Next stop: the Women's fun run on December...

Might as well start training again ^_^

i think it's ok to splurge every once in awhile....just as long as you can put a leash to it when need be. So, go get those shoes =)
