I did this race in 2005 and 2006 but plan on sitting out this year. I'm going to probably sign up to volunteer so I'll be cheering for you.

I did it last year as my second race and I'll probably do it again this year. It's a very well organized race, good stuff in the goody bag, nice post-race food and there are some fast women that do this race. (but I'm not one of them )

Assuming I reach my goal at Iron Girl, I'm planning on this one, too... which will make it my second tri.

Doing this!  Last year this was my 3rd race and it was a good one.  It has a lot of first time and beginner racers...and some fast girls too!  It was great racing only women, I'm looking forward to it again this year!

Last year's race was my 2nd tri (I took the LaVigne approach and did not train...again).

This year's race will be my (Mistletoe, Acworth, St. A., RYKA, Vineman, Acw...) 6th tri, not counting the GC Bike relay.  And this time I've trained.  Sort of....

Glad to hear that those of you who did it last year & prior years found it to be a good race. My friend and I thought it would be cool to be out there competing with just women. Of course, we really only compete against ourselves, for we are snails, but having fun.

I haven't decided yet if I should get a hotel room or drive up there early in the morning. The hotel room makes the most sense I guess. What are others planning on doing?

I did this race last year and it was great! You will have a great time. I'll be doing it this year and i'm in a new age group (ahhh!!) so my focus is to try and beat my time from last year. This is a great race for all athletic levels.
Good Luck!

HI all, this is my first forum post. I am doing Callaway this weekend and it is my first Tri. I am planning on doing the Acworth for my second Tri. i am very excited about both, but very nervous about the swim and cycling in a large group of people.

Any veteran words of wsidom would be great.

Great to be on and doing a Tri...

Hello to Greg's better half!!  Or NapkinBoy as I like to call him.  

I'll be at Callaway to cheer you on. My husband is also doing his 1st tri, and just learned to swim.  There's so much about triathlon it's difficult to post it on a forum.  Mostly it's learn as you go, but the key is to always stay calm and focus on your task at hand.  Have a game plan for transition, I.E. get organized about the stuff you'll need, when you'll need it and where you'll put it, and then try to have some fun!  The 1st one is always about learning, taking your time, having fun! 

Definitely come to some of our group workouts posted here and on NAMC forum! We love to torture newbies

Hey Mrs. Cornelius! (sorry, I don't know your first name I'll be at Callaway this weekend too! It was my very first race last year and although I didn't have a great race time it was great fun! I wouldn't worry too much about cycling in a large group of people, most people spread out pretty fast. Even at the Acworth race, which is a decent size race for around here, there were many times when I was by myself on the road.

I hope we can all meet up before the race on Sunday and at Acworth!

Yeah i am not looking to break reconrds, just not to break my neck. I know i can finish and that is my only goal for this one. Acworth will be a better test for time for me. I am excited about getting to know some fellow BTers and getting into Greg's group.
I told him i felt stupid because i am riding a bike that is too small, a helmet that is too big, and expectations that are too high. We wil see what the day brings! Look forward to meeting you! Good luck this weekend as well.

Hey chickas!

Just signed up for this race as well! It will be my third tri ever. Just finished Callaway and will have my second tri the weekend before Acworth. Hopefully I won't be too affected to do decently at this race! I second Mindy's idea for us to meet up before the race!

It appears that I reached my goal of not dying at Ryka and therefore I went ahead and registered for Acworth... about 24 hours before the foot fracture diagnosis.  The run is not going to be pretty.  I'll try not to trip anyone with my crutches .

Seriously, I am really behaving myself and following doctor's orders with the hope that I can do this.  If I can't participate, I'll volunteer and I'm in for meeting up at some point before/after!

Fun Killer plans on doing this race; although I don't think she has registered yet.

Team Collins might volunteer again.  That was fun at Ryka.

I guess when we get a little closer to the race we can find decide how to all meet up. I think I will be up there spending the night. It is about a 2 hour ride from my house, don't really feel like being on the road at 4am, but knowing that I won't sleep much anyway the night before a race maybe I will be on the road. Who knows.

Of our group, two of us will be doing our second Tri, one will be doing her first, and I just found out today that someone else I know will also be doing this race as her first Tri. Fun Fun Fun!

For those of you who have been to this race before, any suggestions on which hotel to stay at close to the race site? I'm not familiar with the area and I will probably be by myself at this race so it would be nice to have a decent place to stay for the night and maybe have some other fellow BTers nearby! =)

Well, I've been looking at mapquest and it's saying, from where I live in midtown, the drive should only take me 35-40 minutes to drive to the race. May just get up that morning and drive afterall. Will see!

Thats what i would do. Acworth is up I-75. it is about 30-45 min from us in Roswell too. No need spending the night unless you really want to.

Okay gals, I just signed up, so I'm officially in! I'm a slow one, so I'll volunteer to bring up the rear

This will be my second TRI and after the 19 miles at IronGirl, I'm hoping the bike will be a piece of cake.

I also look forward to meeting some of you guys before the race.

Anyone know what the lake looks like now? Is the water level REALLY low? Will we be swimming in mud?
