Run until the trail runs out.
The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff
Me too, it's 7 or 8 though.

Guessing you guys are registered in 2012. I am running this year too. BIG NUMBER 1. First time. Woo Hoo. Any advice?
Go slow. 2 miles downhill. 4 miles uphill. Peachtree is an event not a race. Enjoy. Watch for the bagels at Publix, the pastor with the holy water and the guys from Moe's throwing t shirts to the crowd.
This will be my seventh Peachtree. I agree with the others advice; you'll miss out on half the fun of the Peachtree if you're running it for serious time. Enjoy the crowd and the sights, it's definitely more of an event than a race. Willy's also often has t-shirts, and getting a beer along the way is not unheard of either.
