Might as Well Call it a Century

Cheryl bicycled 91 miles on Sunday Oct 7, 2008. This annual ride was organized by Ed, who coordinates the SAG support and transport of vehicles to the destination. The route was scenic backroads from Barhamsville to Fredericksburg, VA. We rode through the historic counties of James City, New Kent, Hanover, King William, Caroline and Spotsylvania. Two support crew rode in a van which carried the food/coolers for the 17 riders. The weather was sunny and in the low 90’s. We departed Ed’s house at 8:30am and arrived in Fredericksburg at 4pm. Total cyling time was 5 hours and 45 minutes at an average pace of 16mph.

Recent fun run 4/21/07

I entered this at the last minute because it was nearby and I can manage to survive 3 miles. Lo and behold……. I won in my age group! As you can see about half of the folks were walkers so competition was not tough. The key to notoriety is to try to beome a big fish in a small pond. Now, if I can only be as lucky for the Virginia Senior Games 20 K bike ride May 13…..

Official Results from today’s HHHunt Power Sprint Triathlon!

Unofficially, according to prelim results, I came in 2nd in my age group of 12 entries. I don’t know why my swim was a minute slow…..the bike wasn’t bad……the run felt like I was bobbing up and down and not going forward because my legs were so tight……there’s always next year and who is gutsy enough to do it with me???? A team????

2006 El Tour de Tucson

I would love to participate in the 2006 El Tour de Tucson. It will be held Sat, Nov 18, 2006 and you can choose a 35, 66, 80 or 109 mile ride. Money goes to the American Parkinson’s Disease Association. If I am traveling that far I would opt for the 109 mile route but everybody could do their own route. Think about going to Tucson and having an early Thanksgiving.

I went to the site to learn more about the Tour and the Arizona APDA I&R center. I have heard it is wonderful riding out there.

Interested in renting a house in Tucson for the Tour? I thought you’d like this from http://www.cyberrentals.com

Richmond Sprint Triathlon

Majeske / Norton succeeds again! You thought they couldn’t do it? Well they did!

Not only did they finish but they cam in 13th place. Not bad for 2 old farts!!!!

This was one heck of a race, with difiicult weather conditions and a tough course. Cheryly managed a smooth and powerul swim. She then did the 20k bike in near record fashion (beating her personal best). Finally Mike chugged through the 5k run in less than a 10.5 minute pace. WOW!

Congratulations to these two champions.

Who will join them next year?????

Victory Nissan Sprintriathlon

Cheryl Majeske was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease in May 2002 at age 47. Cheryl’s profession as a Physical Therapist prepared her to accept the movement changes that accompany Parkinson’s Disease.

Because she was always committed to exercise for optimal health and fitness, incorporating a daily exercise routine to manage and hopefully delay physical deficits was an easy transition.

300 meter pool swim- 20k bike- 5k run. The bike is scenic and rolling to flat, run course is flat through the award winning Twin Hickory neighborhood. This event benefits the Shady Grove YMCA and the Massey Cancer Center. This year Cheryl and husband Mike registered as a team. Cheryl competed in the swim, bike and Mike competed in the run.
