After the lost of my son two years ago, I’ve participated in a number of different races that have helped in my healing process. Being able to raise money and run for a cause has given me hope and power to keep going. I am healthier, my mind is clearer, and I feel good. Life is for the living and I am energized and ready. It would be a pleasure to run this year in the Peachtree Road Race. Thank you.

I have lived in Atlanta now for 17 years, and have yet to ever take part in this tradition. I feelhave this needsyear to change. This year a few of my friends are running it, and what a better way to start a holiday then to go for a run?

This would have been my 7th consecutive PRR but I was not chosen in the lottery. I have recently gotten serious about running and getting healthy…I have completed too many 5 and 10K’s to count (including 2 5K’s tomorrow), 3 half-marathons, have signed up for my 4th half, and have my sights set on the Hot Chocolate 15K in January. I had this year’s PRR on my race calendar to keep my momentum going. I would love the opportunity to continue my PRR streak and improve on my time from last year. I am by no means fast…but I am out there pounding the pavement with the best of them. My favorite running quote is “slow miles are better than no miles.” Gotta run!!

Daughter’s last Peachtree Jr. was this year. Now it’s time for us to began a tradition of doing the Peachtree together. She would be so excited finally get to run with mom.

My running mantra: (From a Georgia Marathon posting on Facebook)

African Proverb: Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastet lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it mustoutrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you had better be running!

The Peachtree Road Race has become my yearly personal goal! As an Atlanta native, I have been running this race for the past three years and nothing comes close than celebrating America’s Independence Day than this. Last year, I got injured before the race but continued running and finished setting a new personal time record. The next day, I went to the doctor and x-rays illustrated that I had suffered a stress fracture and had to wear a boot for months. My doctor begged to ask, “why did you run?” I replied, “because I wanted to start and finish my goal.” I am now fully recovered and I hope I can achieve a number and be a part of this race and its beautiful atmosphere. It will always be an honor to take part in this global race that is celebrated along with our fantastic soldiers here and stationed in the Middle East. God Bless America, finish your goals and I hope no one gets injured!

Looking to run my 15th! As much as I enjoy the Peachtree, the local 5Ks during the Spring leading up to it are equally great, and allow running with strollers! Check them out if you’ve never run before, they’re great for families, and cooler weather.

The race provides a sense of one-ness for the city and a great sense of accomplishment for those who run. It would be awesome to participate this year! I’ve recently moved away and would love to come back to visit the city in a spectacular way.

I was speaking to a college student at the Brookhaven Bolt 5K. He is a two-time state high school cross county champion and just returned home after finishing his first year of college. He really wants to run the Peachtree, but unfortunately missed the lottery deadline. I would love to be able to win a number for him and see him cross that finish line. Please pick us.

I have always wanted to try the Peachtree road race with a close love one. Now that my daughter is old enough we can use this time as a father daughter bonding race. After crossing the big 50 this week, its now or never ….

Have run for 8 straight years and want to keep the streak alive. Didn’t have funds at the time of the lottery, so had to make a tough call. This would be a great way to keep the string alive. *fingers crossed*

Even with my pulmonary issues from deployments to Iraq, I still run and I keep getting better & faster. I’m in a Ranger unit at Fort Benning now, so the running is a lot more demanding. My squad leader is running this upcoming Peachtree marathon & enlightened me of how much he benefits from this race. I’m training with him and would love to be able to run with him as well! Rangers Lead The Way!

Well I am giving this a shot. Not getting my hopes up, but I run on a daily basis and have always been interested in running a marathon, but have never had the chance to do it. Congratulations to who ever wins and its not about how fast you can run, but the joy and peace ONE achieves when finishing.

I’ve ran the Peachtree three times, but last year I had a panic attack at the starting line and had a horrible day. I was scared to do this year, but now I’m thinking this would be a great time to redeem myself!!

Running has been sort of a rebirth. A year into marriage, I had gained a lot of weight. I wasn’t tracking in a good direction. I set out to start running at least 2-3 times per week. I lost the weight back and started looking like I was in my young 20s again. It felt sooooo good! I want to run this race as an exclamation point to what has been a year of resurgence in my life. Please pick me!

My 11 year old daughter and 60 year old mother completed their 1st Peachtree last year. They enjoyed it so much, we wanted to all do it again this year. We didn’t get a number in the lottery and were TERRIBLY disappointed! My daughter really wanted to make the Peachtree an annual tradition for us… We’d be very, very thankful…
