London, Broadgate Tower – Stair climb

broadgate towerVictory at Broadgate Towerrun in London! Today I won after 4:07 min and 877 steps, 9 seconds ahead of the Briton Mark Sims, who had five weeks previously beaten me by 5 seconds at the Danube Tower run-up. A pasta party and interesting conversations followed afterwards. To paraphrase the overall experiences with the words of Mark Twain “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.”  Looking forward to Tuesday to the Vertical Rush at Tower 42 – with a harder competition.
