Day 23: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Mojo Breaks On Through

Mojo Rising finished Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA this morning when Los Angeles native Lindsay Phenix ran the last miles for her team onto the Santa Monica Pier.

Mojo finished with a time of 22 Days, 10 Hours, 28 Minutes. They are the 7th team to finish the race.

Mojo was wonderfully consistent every day of the race with solid contributions and wonderful chemistry from everyone on the team. They recorded at least 100+ miles every day and you could almost always set your clock by them finishing the day with ~134 miles.

After finishing on the Santa Monica Pier early this morning, the team ran another 70+ miles up and down the boardwalks alongside the Pacific Ocean.

The team was led by Lindsay Phenix’s 570.80 miles, along with Audrey Davis’s 368.22 miles and 354.13 miles from JR Reynolds.
