I actually went up twice in 24 hours. The first time I got within 2 hours of the peak, and had to turn around because the person I was with couldn't make it. I rested for a couple hours and then my guide took me up alone for a rare afternoon summit. Made it all the way this time, despite complete exhaustion. Being in shape helps, but my experience definitely showed me that so much of it is mental -- and having a great guide that will help you (I used and would recommend Arusha guide through Kilimanjaro Experts).
