What a wonderful day for The Glass. They were 2nd place on the day beating everyone but Rev Run. It came from strong performances by Lisa Van Wolde (25.12 miles), Tiffani Glass (20.24), and Joan Lamayo-Buse (14.52). The Chiu brothers, Brendan and Justin, combined for 22.67 miles which really helped KG knock on Reverend’s door.

PEERS ONE- Day 10: 57.88 Miles (12th) – 10th overall

Team morale is down for  P-1 with the race ending injury to it’s big miler Thomas Fowler. Captain Rich Peers continues to lead by example, but he might need to dig deep for a Knute Rockne speech to amp up the rest of the team to help make up Fowler’s missing miles. Steve Durbin got in 8.18 on the day, and Diane Taylor landed on 6.49 miles.

The team is in Germantown, Tennessee.

THE BEETROOTS – Day 10: 69.76 Miles (11th) – 12th overall

The Beetroots get a race report today. The good news is Brenda Cross (22.01), Lance McDermott (20.13), and Leslie Studtmann (13.10) contributed wonderfully for The Roots today. The bad news is those three made up 55.24 of the team’s 69.76 miles. As in the other eight members of the team contributed 14.52 miles total. Is this the same team that had 145.86 miles this past Sunday?

The team is in Brownsville, Tennessee being chased by a swarm of killer hornet bees.
