Kit Brazier and Marylou Corino RIF Run Across the USA Peak Performers

Day 3: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Razing Arizona

Arizona is on fire as the four teams in the Run It FastRace Across the USA‘ blazed across ‘The Grand Canyon State’ razing up ruts of asphalt on their way towards Flagstaff and beyond for one team.

The story of the day came from the back of the field as the Hope Shull Team laid down 149.88 miles after their lackluster 94.79 miles the day before. The 149.88 also topped their Day 1 mark of 108.5 miles. HST had the second most team miles for the day. This team was led by Kit Brazier and team captain Marylou Corino. Brazier’s miles from the day before came in after check-in last night. So they were included in today’s total along with another big run she put down. They totaled a whopping 39.65 miles.

Marylou put down two 15 spots today for 30.39 miles. One of the highest single day totals of the event. It was an inspirational push that has inspired her team to realize that they have a chance in this contest.  Hope’s team finished the day a few miles past Kingman, Arizona having been led by two queens.

The double-headed dragon performances from Marylou Corino and Kit Brazier are the ‘Race Across the USA’ –  Peak Performances of the Day.

The Jeffrey Price Team was strong once again today. They were down a bit mileage from yesterday’s high, but they topped their Day 1 total by a couple of miles. They had a large number of runners knock out double digit runs. Their biggest drama today was fighting each other to get out of the van, and back on the road, each runner wanting to pound more pavement. This team is really pushing each other at a very high level.

The break out star of the entire race so far has been JPT’s Tom Orr. Tom’s been building a mileage stairway to heaven over the first three days with totals of 16.09, 18.39, and 20.29. He is the ‘McFeely-Good’ story of the race so far.  ‘Double-Dime’ Heather McComb once again knocked out 20+ miles. Over the first 3 days of the event she has 65.24 miles. Karl Studtmann was strong again today running 20.16 miles, while, at the same time, taking 17 telemedicine calls (and nine from Leslie).

The team camped out atop Bill Williams Mountain in Williams, Arizona tonight at 6,765 feet. The West Tennesseans on the team kept referring to it as Mt Everest. JPT’s biggest mistake of the day was letting David ‘Smokeless’ Oglesby attempt to build the campfire. After a ‘loud’ text message from his wife Melissa, back in Tennessee, ‘500K Dave’ finally relented and let Donna Burns get the fire going. Jeffrey’s team finished the day with 144.16 miles, 2nd place overall and built upon their lead over third.

The Charlie Taylor Team had participation from all 15 members again today. The only team to have ‘perfect attendance’ over the first three days. The team had no massive-mile stars today, but everyone was solid with five reaching double-digits led by team captain Joshua Holmes‘ 13 miles. They finished the day with 112.5 miles just short of Seligman, Arizona. The team is healthy and sticking with their consistent, all-hands-on-deck approach. They remain in third place overall.

The Suzy Michelson Team fell off slightly today, but they still put down the most miles of Day 3 with 160.2 miles powered by five 20-mile days from Barry Reece, Captain Shane Tucker, Alex Barrientos, David Nichols, and led by Chris Clemens‘ 25.77 miles. Reece hit the 20-mile mark for the 3rd consecutive day. Kimberly Atkins added a half marathon+ after her 26.22 miles yesterday. This team has the most heavy hitters. If they can stay healthy, they will be tough to beat.

The team finished the day in Winslow.  A few minutes later, Mission Control received the following message from Clemens:

“Well, I’m a standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
And such a fine sight to see
It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford
Slowin’ down to take a look at me”

Captain  Tucker made sure to pay for the rooms in cash and not put a credit card down for incidentals.

Hopefully the team is taking it easy, having a good night on the town, and safely asleep by now.  The SMT may lose, or they might win, but it’s sure they will never be here again.

The Suzy Michelson Team remains in the overall lead with 534.01 miles covered for the race.

There are as many reasons for running as there are days in the year, years in my life. But mostly I run because I am an animal and a child, an artist and a saint. So, too, are you. Find your own play, your own self-renewing compulsion, and you will become the person you are meant to be.” –George A. Sheehan

Marylou Corino winning The 2018 Sequoyah Marathon

Jason Loyd Win’s The Sequoyah Marathon

Brentwood native Jason Loyd won The Sequoyah Marathon at Pinson Mounds State Park on November 25, 2018 with a new personal record time of 3:14:33. It was a fourteen minute PR for Loyd who had last set it at the same race in 2016.

A speedy three-some that included Jackson natives Karl Studtmann and Randy Broadway along with Loyd blurred around the 2.91 mile looped course for the first 10+ miles together as those in attendance enjoyed the smoke show as these men seemed as if they had been catapulted out of a jet from the rest of the field.

Loyd was on a rail, extremely consistent with his splits around 7:30’s as Stuntman and Broadway fell back off the strong pace. Broadway stayed close in second for several miles, with Studtmann falling back to third place, as Jason started to run off away with it eventually leaving Broadway behind by a good bit.

Studtmann then passed Broadway for second around mile eighteen. Karl put some substantial distance between him and Randy, as Randy, with the win out of sight, went into conservation mode for his 100K the following weekend in Kentucky. Karl took second place with a strong showing in 3:26:20 with Randy rounding out the men’s podium in 3:43:50.

It’s the first win for Loyd and would have been a BQ time if only the course was a BQ certified course.

Canadian Marylou Corino, running her third consecutive day of races after back to back 40 milers, was the female winner in 4:07:17. Corino completed four races over the three days and was the female winner, not only at The Sequoyah Marathon, but also at the Black Diamond 40 Miler and Double Black Diamond 40 Miler.

The Sequoyah Marathon female top three was rounded out by Heather Coon in 4:22:38 and sixteen-year old Morgan Seech running her marathon debut in 4:40:06.

The Sequoyah Marathon Results
1. Jason Loyd – 3:14:33
2. Karl Studtmann – 3:26:20
3. Randy Broadway – 3:43:50
4. Marylou Corino – 4:07:17 (1F)
5. Chris Clemens – 4:17:28
6. Heather Coon – 4:22:38 (2F)
7. Mike Samuelson – 4:36:27
8. Morgan Seech – 4:40:06 (3F)
9. Joseph Montgomery – 4:46:00
10. Kelly Oswald Paul – 5:09:38
11. Stefanie McKinney-Holliday – 5:30:10
12. Marj Mitchell – 5:49:16
13. Aaron Smith – 5:58:10
14. David Wingard – 6:30:23
