105 Years Old Cyclist Sets World Record

"In case you missed the news last week, 105-year-old Frenchman Robert Marchaud set a cycling record in a category all his own. On Wednesday January 5th, Marchaud rode 14 miles in one hour, the fastest time for anyone 105 or older. In a post-ride interview he stated: “when you are old like this, you must never stop for too long. If you stop for too long you just won’t be able to get going again. So every morning you need to do something – maybe 4 or 5 kilometers. You must always train your muscles because if you don’t, they will become lazy.”

This is a beautiful example of talking to yourself rather than listening to yourself. Did you make a resolution last week? Have you kept it up? Nobody else can make you do it. You can’t just decide you want to do it. You have to make yourself do it even when you don’t feel like it. If you have already started working on your resolution, keep it up! Don’t let laziness start taking over. If you haven’t started yet, then this is your call to action. Are you gonna let a 105-year-old man ride circles around you? I hear he’s looking for a rival! 😉 - Jose Madrigal, Facet Seven Owner & Trainer"
