I completed 103 stairs on the stairmaster at my gym however, I'm not sure what counts as completing a set of stairs? Anyone know. Are stairs 12 steps, 20 steps, 30 steps? You know what I mean?

FYI - I did 65 floors in 10 minutes, at 102 stairs/minute.
This gives 10 * 102 = 1020 steps
The Empire State building has 102 floors, 1860 steps
This is about 18 steps/floor (1860/102)
My stairmaster is at about 16 steps/floor (102 stairs in 10 minutes = 1020 stairs, 1020/64 floors =~ 16 steps/floor)
65 floors * 16 steps/floor = 1040 steps
(1860 - 1040) = 820 steps from climbing Empire State Building
820/16 = 51 more floors...
This means that I need to climb 65+51=116 floors of stairmaster to equate to 102 floors of Empire State Building.
