ZVC cyclist, racer, and triathlete was honored this past weekend with the Pegye Marshall Spirit Award at the Milkman Triathlon in Dexter, NM. This award is presented every year at this race in memory of Pegye, who was an amazing triathlete, businesswoman, and mother. She won this race the first thirteen years it was held and was an inspiration to all. Her life was cut short due to domestic violence. This award has so much meaning for Terry, having experienced and overcome personal struggles of her own. She was truly honored, shocked, and humbled, to have earned this award and at her favorite race of the year. Not only does she describe this race as an amazing venue, with an awesome race director, volunteers, and athletes, but also a race dear to her heart. It is where she talked to her husband and shared lunch with him for the first time. ZVC is so proud of Terry and her many accomplishments and proud she is part of ZVC! And I am proud to have such an amazing and inspirational teammate!
Several ZVC racers participated in last week’s Iron Horse race in Durango, CO and at the NM Mountain Bike Championship race at Glorieta. For these race results and others, check out the ‘Results’ tab in our menu.
