Courtesy of Larry Newman: I had the pleasure of doing a sprint triathlon on Father’s Day at Callaway Gardens over near Pine Mountain, Georgia, an unbelievable venue for a race. It was well organized and huge, with 1500 racers participating, many first timers. I pretty much got my butt kicked which I blame on the yard work I did at mom’s house and not the fact that there were some really good triathletes there. ☺ The swim was a wave start in a beautiful, clear, pristine lake. The swim followed the shoreline and was a perfect for beginners and experienced racers alike.
