Ms. Marongiu-Lutz invited Mr. Chew for her challenge, and he joined her for the first 62 times up the steps on Saturday. He stopped at that point but stayed at the Cathedral talking to her friend and her husband to watch her break his record.

“I was pretty impressed,” Mr. Chew said. “She kept saying ‘I’m just going to do one more, one more, one more.’ And slowly, the numbers creeped up.”

He was sad to see his record broken, he said, but happy for Ms. Marongiu-Lutz.

And I thought I was doing well for climbing them just once, though all the way from sub-basement to (not kidding here) 41st floor

these are some impressive numbers:

It took her 23 hours and 34 minutes. Mr. Chew set the record in 17 hours.

His fastest time going up all 36 flights is 3 minutes 38 seconds, set in 1993. He also has gone up the steps nine times in just one hour.

wow, a full day climbing steps. crazy

I’ve done the vertical mile before and my legs were sore for days. I really need to work that into a euphemism.
