Today, the MPH community says goodbye to James C. as he heads West to Denver, CO.

James started with MPH three years ago this January. As with many of our new athletes, realizing his full potential required a commitment beyond just regularly showing up for the workout. To continue to get stronger, James needed to focus on his mobility. More than most athletes we can remember, he took his homework seriously. Nearly every day after the 6a class, James would quietly head upstairs and work on his shoulders.

Along his journey of becoming a better and more well rounded athlete, James became a fixture at the 6a and a well-liked, respected member of the MPH community. He was tough enough to put up with the 6a banter, but always nice enough to make sure everyone felt welcomed and appreciated.

There will be many reasons to miss James—he was just getting good at hosting parties on his rooftop (we’ll miss his roof deck this summer!), his willingness to rent a car and drive to the Civilian Military Combine in Pennsylvania, his foolishness to try swimming for the first time in the ocean as he completed his first Triathlon, and participating in weekend CrossFit competitions. Most of all we will miss James C. because he is a genuinely great guy.

We wish you all the best in Denver James. You’ll have your workout in a short time…
