Last year I broke a string of 16 consecutive Peachtree Road races while I was in Cooperstown for baseball. I'm back this year and ready to run. But like Chip said, I'm not looking forward to the heat!

This was my first Peachtree. I was expecting heat and the weather was perfect for running. Are you guys telling me not to get used to it!?

@MikeCottmeyer - Cloud cover held temps down more than expected. I read 71 degrees at start time which was down a little from last year. Glad you had a good run. It's a quite an event.
