I want the numbers so badly my roommate and I will dress up like giant AJC newspapers and run in costume. I haven’t missed a Peachtree race in years and I don’t want to start now.

I ran in 2009 and it was so much fun. I would like to run this year with my husband for our 1 year anniversary. He got a number in the lottery and I didn’t. :-(

I’d been hoping to participate in the Peachtree Road Race since 2007. I trained for it by walking 5 miles a day and hill climbing at Stone Mountain park regularly. In 2011, I was randomly selected. I made it and was able to completed the entire 5K. This was a proud moment. The Peachtree Road Race is an amazing experience. During the walk, there were some tears, smiles and an inner fire that refuse to give up—all hidden behind sunglasses. Knowing that I could do this, it provided a milestone to look forward to, in the coming years, on my way to a healthy me. So, of course, I was heavily disappointed that I did not make the 2012 lottery. I so want this. It’s difficult to explain without getting emotional, but The Peachtree Road Race is an important part of the my “big picture” to personal success.

I have got back into running after years off and would love to run with my 17 yo son. Neither of us have run it before and the pair of tickets would be a great for us to run it together.

As a apart of my “get healthy goal” I committed to complete 12 races that are 5k and above, I’ve completed 4 so far and want to add the Peachtree to the list. Help me complete my goal!!

I began running the Peachtree in 1999 because it was either run or diet to control my weight. I take cruise vacations simply to eat so dieting was out of the question. I’ve ran 7 or 8 PRR’s since then.

I will be 71 years old July 14th. My wife and I have completed 3 Peachtree Road Races ( 93, 90, 96,min.) Nothing to brag about, but crossing the finish line were very proud monents and something we will never forget.We are in great phycial shape, and enjoy jogging and walking 3-5 miles daily. Didn’t get picked in the lottery drawing this year. A pair of tickets would sure make my day ( and surprise my wife.)

I am so upset that I was not chosen by the lottery after 5 consecutive years. I started my t-shirt collection and would like to add another. Plus, my girlfriend got in (1st timer)and she is so “scared”…I would love to run with her as a motivator.

I had guaranteed entry because I had tickets last year to Peachtree and was unable to participate, but this year missed the sign up date to claim guaranteed tickets. Bummer.

What better way to spend the 4th of July than running the AJC Peachtree Road Race with 50,000 friends. I am a Maconite that have only walk/ran local 5K’s but finally feel that I am in the shape to run the big one in Atlanta sporting the red, white and blue. Running this race with the hero of my life, my mom would be the best!
