Y produces Ironman triathlete

Sherman completes Wilmington triathlon

Wray Sherman has been a member of the Waynesboro Family Y for 12 years. On Nov. 13, Sherman completed the Beach2Battleship Iron-Distance Triathlon in Wilmington, N.C.

It took him 14 hours, 17 minutes to finish the 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run.

“Since February, I spent about 12- 15 hours a week training for this triathlon,” said Sherman. “Many of those hours were spent in the Y swimming pool and cardio-fitness room.”

Sherman also used the Nautilus machines to do core exercises.

Sherman notes that although the sport of triathlon is an individual endeavor it still takes a network of family, training partners, nutritionists, and coaches to support the individual triathlete.

“The Waynesboro Y is one of my supports,” he said. “I could not have completed this Iron-distance triathlon without the Y.”
