7 day until I participate in one of my favorite races!!
Peachtree Road Race is the largest race in the United States ~ 60,000 runner friends
2011 was the 1st year we ran this race. We had not really trained for a run, we just wanted to spend July 4th in a unique way. We were hooked, on the drive home we committed to running it the following year.
Here's a few of our favorite Peachtree Road Race memories:
Making our way to the start line...
Having a little fun while waiting for our wave to begin!

PRR x 2 - WOOT!
We did it!
2nd year times : Allison - 1:06; Mitzi - 1:11; Brandi - 1:18
"Heat, Hills, Humidity" is the slogan!
This year it may live up to that slogan; however, I am ready! We have been getting in training runs in the heat to help our bodies adjust. I am looking forward to spending another July 4th in one of my favorite cities with a few of my favorite friends.
Many have asked if I have a goal for this race, clearly they know me well! I realize with 60,000 people it's hard to set a goal. I have gotten much faster in the past year so
my goal is to be under an hour for this 10K.
Wish me luck!!
