Why is a Texan, who lives in Puerto Rico, competing in NJ
That is a great question, and here is the reason why, step by step:
Back in May, I was forced to change gyms because mine closed it’s doors temporarily.
When I found a new gym, they had a functional squat rack and bench press, where the other gym didn’t.
Excited that I could squat and press again, I thought, “Hey, I should train for a meet!”
Looking at my travel schedule, I had a business trip planned to Baltimore Aug 11-16, that was about 3 months away at the time.
So, I looked for USAPL meets in that vicinity that I could wrap into ONE trip to the states.
I found the NJ State Meet on 8/10.
Then started a ~13 week training cycle that I am wrapping up this week.
And I will compete for the first time in 6 years in 6 days in NJ!
Want to come cheer me on?
The meet is August 10, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Brunswick, NJ (Two Albany Street).
I compete from 9am to 1pm and awards follow. Let me know if you are coming!
