  • (1888PressRelease) October 19, 2010 - Clearwater, FL - Team BodyHealth ( member Cherie Gruenfeld stormed to a remarkable victory in the 65-69 age group at the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona on October 9, 2010. Having won the title a previous nine times, Cherie credits her use of Master Amino Acid Pattern (MAP) for her consistent success. "As usual, I followed my MAP regimen and it served me very well. I had to catch a competitor and she pushed me all through the run. Although my legs were screaming, my stamina and endurance were great, which I attribute to good training and my use of MAP," she says.

    In winning her age-group, Cherie bettered the course record she set last year by six minutes, finishing in a time of 13:16. However, the race was not without mishap for her. At about mile 55 of the bike, she hit a fellow competitor who had been blown off his bike. They both hit the ground and Cherie stayed clipped in her pedal with one foot as the wind blew her bike up and over her. When she righted herself, she discovered that the front end of my bike was a mess. "My tire was heading north and my handle bars were heading west. Not wanting to wait for tech support, I mounted and rode slowly for a couple of miles until tech support came along and fixed me up. I was a little banged up and thankfully nothing was lost but a little time," she recounts.

    BodyHealth founder and 37-time Ironman finisher, Dr David Minkoff, was also competing in Kona for the eighth time. He says of Cherie's victory, "Cherie is a remarkable athlete and person. In addition to her athletic accomplishments she is a writer and public speaker and works with youth in her community in her Exceeding Expectations program. Cherie we are very proud of you!"

    To finish a grueling Ironman course is a true test of endurance requiring a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run. One of the reasons that Cherie is so consistent is because MAP is 2 to 5 times more effective and absorbed 4 to 12 times faster than meat, fish, soy or whey. Master Amino Acid Pattern (MAP) is 100% absorbed within 23 minutes and is utilized to build body proteins. No other source of protein or amino acid can compare. This unique patented formula of the essential amino acids was created in the exact ratio and pattern-MAP for the human body to optimize endurance and protein recovery and minimize injury.
