Alex Johnson reflects on her trip to Washington DC and the ABS Nationals

 
Alex Johnson reflects on her trip to Washington DC and the ABS Nationals
 
March 11, 2010 -  Alex Johnson    
 

When I first heard that the 2010 ABS Nationals were being held in Washington D.C. my initial reaction was, "What the hell did I move to Colorado for if not to be closer to The Spot for Nationals?!" But after spending the weekend in Washington I was telling everyone I met how much I liked the city. This year's Bouldering Nationals at Sportrock Gym were probably the most entertaining, best organized, and all-around most fun Nationals I've ever competed at. My personal high-point was snagging the finish hold of Women's Finals problem #3 with only seconds to spare! Overall, I placed second to my friend and teammate Alex Puccio. I know both of us are itching to see how we match up in the competitions in Europe. A big trip may be coming in the near future.
