    I ran it with Mokie in 2009. 

    I ran it with Mokie in 2009. Be prepared, it includes the Heartbreak Hill/Heart Attack Hill too, since they use some of the Peachtree Road Race's route. It's a fun race. I PRd on that race too, and we weren't even trying to run fast. Must have been the cold that helped. It was just above 30 degrees F when we ran it. It might be warmer for you this year, since the cold is having a hard time hitting Georgia. It's been beautiful here for days on end, not much cold. Hope you have a great race!

    Finished my first Half (just

    Finished my first Half (just turned 50 YO)....in VFF. Had Barefoot Tyler (In bare feet) pace me for a 2:30...We finished in 2:17. We did not see anyone else Bf or Minimalist. This was the first race where all comments were supportive and complimentary.....are we becoming more mainstream or accepted?

    This was a day i will never forget..

    Thanks Atlanta Track Club for a professionally ran race, and Barefoottyler for the pace.



    Carpe Diem
