This is a truly amazing and challenging event, although total time took you to the top is only less than half an hour, but it is the hardest event I had ever taken part, KL Tower International Forest Towerthon 2010.
The 800m uphill running at the beginning is good enough to drain your energy. For the first step I stepped on the staircase, I already exhausted, breathing huff and puff like going to collapse. Further on, there were countless staircase and uncountable levels. I could not figure out how many levels I had passed and how many levels to go. I could only focus on my legs climbing one step at a time and concenrate on my breathing to increase my inhale and exhale. Until at certain points, I felt that strenght was with me (Thank God!) but my breath was going to stop.
One thing is, I could not feel the finishing excitement because I could not see it. Somehow I fall in love with this challenge although I am not advantage at all in this kind of dashing event. I'm sure I cannot compete with others, but I'm sure I can outdo myself next time.
I did it in 22:44 rank around 15th or 16th in Women Open. Not too bad though but it was really a bad choking experience!
