Art of Ageing: Meet energetic Doc and Sheryl

SHERYL and Doc are everyday seniors who represent the wonderful diversity of NSW's older residents.

Their story reflects an Australia unique to its older generation - a contrast of values, emotions and personality in an ever-changing landscape.

Seniors News, with the help of the NSW Government, will be telling Sheryl and Doc's, and many more seniors' stories in a six week series.

Their stories can also be glimpsed in a 30-image exhibition that will be touring NSW throughout 2018 and 2019.

 

The story of Sheryl and Doc

"When I look in the mirror I don't see a 60-year-old woman, I see a strong, fit, healthy woman who is now a runner," Sheryl says. "I didn't start running until my fifties."

Sheryl and her husband, Doc, now regularly take part in running festivals.

Doc is a triathlete who competes in the Australian lronman and has done so 12 times. Sheryl says he's an inspiration, "He's the most amazing person I know. When others say I can't, he always says, you CAN."

Together they own a small cafe in the medical centre in Mudgee.

We meet Sheryl and Doc on their morning run at 6am on a Tuesday. Watching them laugh as they both tried to get in front for the photographer was hilarious - the energy and inspiration they get from each other is obvious, and clearly drives them both to be all that they can be.
