Hello all, thought I would try my hand at helping people to get this done. FYI, this achievement can be very frustrating because it involves a fair amount of lucky RNG as well as skill so with that being said hopefully I can offer a few tips to make it a little easier.
1) First off, you must progress through all of the chocobo training in the calm lands until you get to the catcher chocobo option. This is the one you must pick. Essentially, you have to race the chocobo trainer to the calm lands exit. To beat this race, all you have to do is have a faster time than her, however to get a time of 0.0.0 it is a little more complicated.
2) There will be balloons in your path. Each one you collect will shave three seconds off your final time. There will also be these rubbish birds that will try and fly into you. Each one that hits you adds three seconds to your final time. You have to amass as many balloons as you can while avoiding birds to get this done.
3) So remember when i mentioned RNG in the beginning? Well, the balloons have different combinations of where they will appear on the battlefield each time you race. If possible, at the start of the race the best setup to put you in the best position to win is a line of 3 or 4 balloons all on the RIGHT side. If you can grab all of those before you pass the corner that will put you in the best position to get the time.
4) IMPORTANT NOTE! - It is more important to dodge birds then to collect the balloons. If you going for a balloon is going to cause you to get hit by a bird DO NOT DO IT.
5) I believe the lowest amount of balloons you can get to get this is 12, but you cannot get hit by any birds and you have to take a very short route. Odds are, that will be too difficult for most. Focus on practicing and going through and dodging the birds. That is the most important thing. Eventually, the RNG gods will bless you with a good balloon setup. I won this with a total of 14 balloons and 1 bird. Good luck, and try not to get frustrated if you can't do it. Go take a break if you feel yourself getting angry and come back!
