I've been crazy enough to sign up for Vertical Rush, a race to the top of Tower 42, the tallest building in the City of London. The event, which is going to take place on the 19th of March, involves running or walking 183m (600ft) up 920 stairs and 42 floors to the top of the tower. All of this is in aid of the vulnerably housed and homeless charity Shelter.
I'm not doing this alone. I have a team of four others from work and we're calling ourselves, "Are we there yet?". We've been climbing 400 stairs (24 floors) in our office every day for the last couple of months, but this is going to be a lot more painful!
Please help to motivate us to the top by sponsoring us through our Just Giving page: http://www.justgiving.com/reteamstairclimb
Stay tuned to find out how long it takes me to climb the tower!
