Georgia Games Open Water Meet: FUN!

Last year, I enjoyed racing the 3K and 1K in the Georgia Games Open Water meet so much that I signed up again this year. It is not part of the Georgia Championship Series this year, however, the Swim 4 Our Lives open water meet, in September, is part of the series. So, this was a great opportunity to get in some open water racing experience.

What a great day at Lake Acworth! The conditions were perfect; cloudy skies and a comfortable water temperature, thanks to all the rain Georgia has had lately. It really cooled the water down nicely.

This year, there was a short break between the 3K and 1K, so it wasn’t quite as crazy as last year, when I crossed the finish line and ran right back out to join the 1K group.

No gold or silver for me this year, but I did beat out three others in my age group to win bronze in the 3K, and I beat four others to win bronze in the 1K.

Most of all, I just really enjoyed racing in the lake today!

My Georgia Masters teammate, Eleanor “Ellie” Jones beat out another teammate to win gold in her first open water race.  I was so proud of her today!
