Lake Lanier, GA – A group of 12 “Rocket City Iron Girls” travelled to Atlanta for the weekend for the sprint triathlon in the gorgeous resort of Lake Lanier. There were around 1000 racers, all women. The swim was a wave start by age instead of ability (loved that). The biking was a challenge – 18 miles of hills, some gradual, some steep (many walked up the steepest hills), and just a few downhills (seemed like many more uphills than down…)
Also a lot of the biking was done amidst resort and surrounding area traffic, which seemed a little treacherous at times.
