Some of us dream of going on a cruise. Traveling. Seeing the Grand Canyon. Maybe even hiking the Grand Canyon. Jan Walker’s dream was to run across America. And at age 57, she made her dream come true. Learn about her journey.
Welcome to week six of my 2,500 mile bike ride I’m calling Cycling for Good. This week I’m riding in honor of Andrew Powell and his fight to recover from devastating injuries and to return to running and triathlon. Learn about AP and the Challenged Athlete Foundation. And you’ll have a chance to make a difference, too.
Meet this week’s featured over 50 athlete, Cherie Eason, 54.
Cherie wears many hats – mother, wife, grandmother, litigation paralegal, runner, coach. Cherie began running when she was 40 to lose weight and get in shape. From those first struggling steps, her confidence and ability have grown exponentially. She has now run 23 marathons/ultramarathons and completed two 50-mile trail races, the first 50 miler to celebrate turning 50! Her goal is to run a marathon in each of the 50 states, and to stay healthy, fit and running for the rest of her life.
