Stair Climb at the Silver Legacy

Yesterday I participated in my second-ever stair climb in down-town Reno, at the Silver Legacy Casino. It isn't as high as the Bank of America building in San Francisco, but 36 flights in the heat is still not something to scoff at. I met up with 3/4 of Team Library Dork, Chris and Dave, and Abbey and Liz, and we did great as a team! I think we placed 2nd over all as a team (but only by average), and I personally finished in 7:27, according to my watch. Not bad, eh? Well, not as good as our team leader Chris, who finished in 3:25!!! He won the event, but there is a dispute over another finisher's time, but we won't know for sure for another month. (I know, that's a ridiculous amount of time to wait for results!) Anyway, I enjoyed myself despite a few things that weren't quite organized, but overall it was a good event, and I feel good about my performance. Here is our team, from back to front, and left to right: Liz, Me, Dave (bottom) Abbey, Hannah (yep, she was fastest of all!), and our fearless leader, Chris.
