Beach Blast Triathlon/Duathlon sprints into April

“The athletes looked so pitiful, so much in pain,” Cemore said. “But they had smiles on their face. I couldn’t understand how anybody could look so horrible, but be so happy.”

After years of training and competing, Cemore undertook the granddaddy of all triathlons, the Ironman in Hawaii.

“I survived,” Cemore said with a chuckle when asked how she did. “I was actually able to walk the next day. It is a beast. But I had to do it just to validate myself as a triathlete.”

The Beach Blast Triathlon/Duathlon, Cemore said, is a success due in large measure to the scores of volunteers who assist with the service to athletes each year, from providing refreshment and direction on the course to ensuring correct times at the finish and ease during transitions.

“We just hope to get enough volunteers with a lot more people to extend service to the athletes,” Cemore said.
