Tallest Building in St. Louis #ReadersWorkouts
Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
On Sunday, we lugged all the luggage upstairs and attempted a practice pack for our trip to Cuba. By the time I was done running around the house to find what we needed, FitBit reported that I climbed 61 floors of steps.
I just looked up the tallest building in St. Louis — it’s One Metropolitan Square with 42 stories. So, I could have climbed to the top on Sunday and still had energy for more. Of course, the tallest structure in St. Louis is the Arch. The FAQ page says that it’s 63 stories tall. If I’d known that on Sunday, I would have climbed from the basement to the second floor one more time just to say that I climbed to the top of the Arch.
I’m doing well on my goals for October, so far:
- 485 of 880 minutes
- 10 of 17 days with 8000 steps or more
- 3 of 6 strength-training sessions

Being still fairly new to St. Louis, it was fun to read about the tallest building here. And you almost “climbed” to the top of the Arch on Sunday, in a manner of speaking! I’m impressed. And what a fun comparison.
Stair climbing is a very challenging workout – nice job! I was in Disney World over the weekend so I was able to give my FitBit a nice workout! I have Tough Mudder this weekend, so I’m definitely worried but trying not to overthink the madness!
Good job on your goals!
Saturday we climbed a tower at an arboretum but it was only 120 ft tall.
Darn it! It is funny to think you are going up and down stairs or all around just your home a million times and it turns out to be almost true!
Good job! Climbing that many flights of stairs is hard!
Good job, Joy! Stairs are terrible!
I run my first 10K on Sunday with my boyfriend. I went very slow, but it was hard anyway. I didn’t stop and walk, so I’m very proud of my crossing that finish line 😀
My parents went to the race to take some photos of us – and I look almost collapsing after an hour running, haha.
