This past Tuesday, five nights before Maggie's Regional Climbing Competition, she tells me she had a dream the night before. "Mom, I dreamt I was at Regionals and came in 13th place." And alas, 5 days later, turns out her dream was spot on. Kinda crazy, huh?
We could not be more proud of our girl. She had a fantastic top rope climbing season this year. Seven comps total, 5 of which were USA sanctioned competitions. The majority of her finishes were either 2nd or 4th place. Her improvement this year was something to see!
In order to move on and quality for the next round, the Divisionals competition, she had to place in the top 10. She did her best and left it all on the wall. That's all anyone can ask of themselves. With her final placement being 13th, it wasn't in the cards for her this year. Perhaps next year her dream can have a placement somewhere in the 1st to 10th range. 😉
Maggie's age group climbed in the morning for this comp and we went back in the afternoon to cheer on her friends in those sessions. We've had wonderful support from friends and family all along the way this year.
We love how she shines in this sport. It's brought out her determination and perseverance in a way that nothing else does.
On to the next season in Fall for bouldering. Until then...
Never Give Up.
Route 1 - Flashed
Route 2 - she made it just a few holds from the top
Route 3 -about halfway up. This one was the killer route and was more or less
the determining placement route.
Congrats to our girl!
Up next - bouldering season.
Bring it on!
