Race Less Train More
Run until the trail runs out.
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?
Run a 10K 15K Half Marathon
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.
This will be my third Peachtree. Start wave B. DH is in start wave C.
