I'm finally doing it!
On May 21st I'll be going up 84 Floors in Taipei 101 (the world's tallest building)
I'm taking guesses as to my time.
I think I'll do it in 25:00.

Are you running or climbing. I don't know the context.

84 floors is pretty big, so it'll probably be walking up 2 stairs at a time. I'm estimating 25 minutes.

Well I did it this morning in 27:53. Not bad. I met a guy in the elevator on the way down that did it in 18:00! Shheeesh!

Thank you all. It was for charity and raised about $35,000 US.
Funny thing, when I was going around asking co-workers for pledges, they always ask "Who is it for?"....what kinda question is that? You'll donate if it's for this but not for that?!:lame:

Of course they should know what they are donating to. Do you just donate to random charities, or do you donate to charities that are acting towards goals that you resonate with? If I founded a charity to promote the benifits of watching 8 hours of TV every day would you donate?

Me too.
I really don't want to make preferences. Are there any 'bad' charities out there? I wouldn't be surprised.
