Nathan Milojevic has iron in his veins.
The 19-year-old from Washougal earned 30th place out of 43 competitors in the 18 to 24 age division at the Ironman Coeur d'Alene June 23. He completed a 2.4-mile swim (1:06.25), a 112-mile bike ride (6:38) and a 26.2-mile run (5:42.05) in 13 hours, 39 minutes and 51 seconds.
"In those last couple of miles, when I realized how close I was, I was just stoked even though I had a hard time standing," Milojevic said. "At the end, it was like a dream. It didn't feel like it actually happened, but it did."
