Advice for 4 State Challenge on AT? PA to VA or Vice Versa

Planning on doing the 4 State Challenge on the AT. Not looking to get a FKT or anything close. Just to complete in time (and in shape enough) to get dinner and a drink afterward (at the end) - so less than 20 hours.

Any advice as to which way to go (north to south or south to north)? and a reasonable timeframe (and start time) for a hike not run (In ok shape - not super fast-  I have hiked to the summit of Mt. Whitney and back less than a day - but the 40s is catching up with me)?

I'm planning on doing it in late Spring/early Summer to take advantage of more daylight, if anyone is interested in hiking it with me.
