“The Road Warrior…”

Posted in Competition on September 25, 2011 by oldcountrystrong

Sometimes it’s hard to be in two places at once. I found this out the hard way this weekend. With the Competition Teams busy schedule and my Iron 101 Schedule juggling everything gets a little hard. So when our very own young James Bevan-Lee  told me he was going to be in Yakima and would like to compete in an event this past Saturday. I had to tell him with some regret that I wouldn’t be able to make the trip.

What James said was, “Hey I’m gonna be in Yakima and I thought I’d do that WODAPALOOZA.”

What James should have said was, “Hey I’m going to drive to Yakima friday night, compete Saturday then get back in my car and drive home.”

I found out James had driven home directly after the Comp when I found him walking on the street in typical James fashion at 10pm Saturday night.

“I thought you were in Yakima?”

“I was, then I drove home and I was at the store and figured it was such a nice night I’d walk around and stretch my legs.”

James was also still in his traditional Battle Jersey for those who know him, and for those that don’t, that’s James for you.

WODAPALOOZA didn’t exactly fit in our training schedule so it wasnt listed in our last upcoming events post. But it was being hosted by our friend and Club supporter Brendan Loyer of Yakima Crossfit. And it was also raising money for a good charity so I’m very glad James was able to go out there for Iron Club.

Not only did James show up to support a good cause and represent the Competition Team. He showed up and REPRESENTED the Competition Team. James has just recently returned from some extensive out-of-state training with the Coast Guard. So he hasn’t really been training the way we usually train. But that didn’t stop him from throwing down Saturday. On limited training and rolling in Road Warrior style by himself James took second.












Nice job James, way to go solo without a Coach and take a seat on the podium.
