It’s a bit overdue (sorry!), but here Is my recap of Open and Youth ABS Nationals. Enjoy!
Whew. What an physically, emotionally and mentally taxing last two weeks it’s been! It all started Friday, February 22nd when I found myself heading down to Colorado Springs bright and early. This was the my first Open Nationals, so I had zero expectations and was just treating it as a training exercise. I also was just psyched to climb and have some fun on some top notch boulders. I ended up doing quite well seeing as though it was my first Open level competition, and I topped 3 boulders to put me in 21st, just one spot out of qualify for Semi-Finals! Obviously I would have loved to have climbed in Semis, but I still felt great about my performance, which left me feeling strong and motivated for Youth Nationals the following weekend.
