“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 Sheehan

I always loved running… it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power.  You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.”  ~Jesse Owens

Run It Fast’s Extreme Racer Standings (thru February 2016)

I hope the close of February has brought spring to many of your doorsteps. It is the greatest time of year for running, when we can finally begin to shed some layers and leave our gloves and ear warmers at home. Here in the great state of Tennessee, Mother Nature has not yet decided if she’s trying to cling to a few more days of chill temperatures or if she’s ready to sling us forward into the brutal Tennessee summer heat and humidity. There’s not much in between here. Those of you signed up for Run It Fast’s Jackal Marathon series have that wonderful humidity to look forward to in just a few months.

Thinking back on the first two colder months of the year, our Extreme Racer Competition is off to a great start for January and February. RIF’s women are kicking tail, taking 7 of the top 10 overall spots for February. Leading the way on the women’s leaderboard is RIF #473 Teal Clark with 222.7 points. Coming in second place, only 8 points behind, is RIF #525 Karen Vollan with 214.4 points. And sliding into third place is RIF #548 Kit Brazier with 200.78 points.

Leading the men is RIF #279 George Southgate with a whopping 364.7 points. Taking second place is the 2015 Extreme Racer winner, RIF #190 John Kent Leighton with 307.4 points. Coming in third place is RIF #425 Sal Coll with 289.95 points.

“Most people run a race to see who is fastest. I run a race to see who has the most guts.” -Steve Prefontaine

The majority of us, myself included, run races knowing that we will likely never finish in the top. But of course, that is not why we race. No matter what your reason is for racing, it adds a certain amount of value to our lives and it adds value to the lives of those around you. Racing provides a certain determination and focus for the long, grueling, lonesome hours that we put in training beforehand. And it also provides a satisfaction after a strong finish, knowing that we worked hard for it, or a lesson learned after a rough day battling it out. Whatever your reason is for racing, whether it’s for the win, for the Extreme Racer points, or for the depth it adds to your life, keep going strong, and keep sharing those moments with the people around you.

Conservation of Our Land for Trail Runners

Joshua Holmes Running in Simi Valley - Run It Fast®

Conservation of our Land and Water

I’ve been blessed to run challenging races in National and State Parks in some of the most beautiful parts of the United States. In doing so I’ve seen sunrises, sunsets, mountains, canyons, rivers, and wildlife more beautiful than my most vivid imagination.

I’m never going to agree fully with every action of any president, but I’m thankful for the actions President Obama has taken to protect more land and water than any president in U.S. history.

I hope his successor will value conservation just as much as President Obama no matter the letter that might appear next to his or her name. Let’s also do our part to protect and keep clean our deserts, forests, oceans, and mountains.

And the best way to conserve our health is to get out, be active, run, hike, and swim in these beautiful places.

Ryan Hall USA Flag Marathoner

Fastest U.S. Marathoner Ryan Hall Retiring from Racing

Ryan Hall USA Flag Marathoner

Ryan Hall, who holds the fastest U.S. marathon time ever recorded in 2:04:58, is retiring from competitive racing at the age 0f 33 according to a detailed article about his career in the N.Y. Times.

The reason is due to extreme fatigue and chronically low testosterone which is limiting Hall to minimal training.

Hall, 33, who was one of the last remaining hopes for an American front-runner in this summer’s Olympic marathon, is succumbing to chronically low testosterone levels and fatigue so extreme, he says, that he can barely log 12 easy miles a week.

Most fans of the sport always felt Hall was on the verge of that major marathon win, but it never transpired as his body seemed to break down often and limit his training.

“I’ve explored every issue to get back to the level I’ve been at, and my body is not responding. I realized that it was time to stop striving, to finally be satisfied and decide ‘mission accomplished.’ ”

Hall is at peace with his decision according to his wife, fellow runner, Sara Hall. The couple recently adopted four Ethiopian sisters.

We wish Ryan and his family the best of luck in his retirement. He’s one of the most well-known U.S. marathoners of all time and a great example to many young runners that they too can become a great American long distance runner.

Lisa Gonzales Looks Back at Her First 100 Races

Race 100

My 100th Race!

My name is Lisa Gonzales and I am RIF #5 (Run It Fast Club). This past weekend, I ran my 100th race! If anyone had told me 10 years ago that I would be running 100 races, including marathons and ultras, I would have said they were crazy. But racing is so fun! And addicting!

I have been keeping track of my races in my running & cycling log (an Excel spreadsheet) because I’m a numbers geek and it makes me happy to see all that I’ve done. The bonus to keeping them in Excel means I can keep a few stats on them. Here’s a summary:

Race Distances:
Ultras – 8
Marathons – 15
Halfs – 36
10Ks – 14
5Ks – 17
Other races – 10

Races in California: 77 (not surprising since I live in Southern California!)
Races in other states: 23 (AZ-5, KY-1, NM-1, NV-4, NY-1, OR-1, SD-3, TN-4, TX-1, UT-1, WA-1)

Races By Year
2009 – 2
2010 – 4
2011 – 12
2012 – 29
2013 – 19
2014 – 14
2015 – 20

I took 9 months off in 2013/2014 because I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer on 9/30/14 and I had to have surgery and 6 rounds of chemo. If not for cancer, I would have hit 100 sooner. One of things that made me so angry at cancer was how many races I had to miss. Racing, to me, is a party and I was mad that I missed so many parties! Sure, it hurts when you run hard and sometimes you want to puke your guts out at the end of a race… but I love seeing friends and running with people who are just like me and knowing that you left everything you had on the course is very satisfying!

So without further ado, here are the races I’ve run since April 2009.

  1. 4/5/09 – Renegade 3 Mile Trail Run – San Dimas, CA – The start of my addiction. This race was hilly, hot, and hard but I was proud of myself for finishing it. 
  2. 11/28/09 – San Dimas Turkey Trot 10K – San Dimas, CA
  3. 2/14/10 – Lost Dutchman Half Marathon – Apache Junction, AZ

  6. 11/27/10 – San Dimas Turkey Trot 10K – San Dimas, CA

  8. 2/20/11 – Lost Dutchman Marathon – Apache Junction, AZ – This is a very cool race. Fun start and fun course. This was the first marathon I did where I actually ran the whole thing. 
  9. 4/9/11 – Labor Of Love Half Marathon – Lovell Canyon, NV – I won my Age Group!
  10. 4/10/11 – Labor of Love Half Marathon – Lovell Canyon, NV – I won the Women’s Half Marathon on the 2nd day! I wasn’t sure that running back to back half marathons was a good idea but it went really well, even with the big hill! It was my first time going sub 2 hours too. Woo!

  31. 8/5/12 – ET Full Moon Midnight 51K – Rachel, NV- This race is a SciFi running geek’s dream. You run during a full moon at midnight out near Area 51! I’m pretty sure I saw some strange lights out there.

    Cummins Falls Half Marathon

  85. 3/8/15 – Snoopy Coaster Run 10K – Buena Park, CA – 10K PR! I love this race! Mostly because I love Snoopy but also because you run through Knott’s Berry Farm and there is pie at the finish! Also, did I mention the pie?
  86. 3/15/15 - Los Angeles Marathon – Los Angeles, CA – This was my first marathon post cancer. I swore I was never going to do big city races again but this one was a great race. It was really well organized, you see some great sights, and the crowd support is awesome. I signed for 2016!
  87. 4/4/15 – Peter Cottontail 5K – Rancho Cucamonga, CA
  88. 4/18/15 – Cosmo 7K – Pomona, CA – 1st in my Age Group! This is a women’s only run.

  90. 5/9/15 – Tinkerbell 10K – Anaheim, CA
  91. 5/10/15 – TinkerBell Half Marathon – Anaheim, CA – This was another race that I missed because of cancer. I was supposed to run it in January 2014 but had chemo just a few days before it so did not get to do it. So happy to finally run it!
  92. 5/16/15 – Renegade 3 Mile Trail Run – San Dimas, CA
  93. 6/6/15 – Fontana Days 5K – Fontana, CA – 5K PR and 2nd in my Age Group! This is a very fast course. The half marathon fills up fast because it is a great PR course.

  98. 9/20/15 – Girls On The Go 10K – San Dimas, CA – 1st in my Age Group!
  99. 10/11/15 – Long Beach Marathon – Long Beach, CA – This was a hot day! Like 98 but I finished! It was the completion of the Beach Cities Challenge (Surf City, OC, and Long Beach) so I was really happy. I had started the Challenge in 2013 but didn’t get to complete it because I had surgery just 2 weeks before Long Beach. Every time I ran a race that I missed because of cancer, I considered it a Revenge Race. Getting to run/race again is the best revenge of that stupid, ugly disease. I win!
  100. 10/25/15 – Terrifying 10 Miler – Dana Point, CA - 2nd in my Age Group running as a Pirate! Hard course but great race.

You may have noticed I have a few races that I repeat every year: Renegade 3 Mile Trail Run, Fontana Days Run 5K, Freedom 5000, San Dimas Turkey Trot 10K, Snoopy Coaster Run 10K, runDisney races. These are local races that are a lot of fun! But mostly I use racing to travel and see places I’ve never been. I don’t have a specific plan to race in all 50 States but I’m sure I will eventually. I keep saying I will race less. I don’t know if that’s going to happen though. We’ll see…

Run It Fast’s Extreme Racer Standings (thru September 2015)

Joshua Holmes at Born to Run, photo by Joel Livesey - Run It Fast

It’s hard to believe how fast 2015 has flown by. We are looking towards the end of the year, and the last few months in the Extreme Racer competition for 2015. Even though there are only 3 months left to accrue race points, this time of year brings some of my favorite races, at least in this corner of the world. The Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon, Tunnel Hill 100/50 miler, and RIF’s own Black Diamond 40 miler, Double Black Diamond 40 miler, and Sequoyah series are all taking place in November and each will be a reunion of sorts for many RIF members who plan to attend.

Founder and RIF #1 Joshua Holmes is still in the lead with 1350.8 points. Only 81.7 points behind is RIF #387 Steven Smith with 1269.1 points. Taking third place is RIF #190 John Kent Leighton with 1207.17 points.

The top women seem to be continuously shaking things up. RIF #450 Patricia Klein has taken over first place with 965.7 points. Coming in second place is RIF #473 Teal Clark with 869 points. And in third place is Canadian RIF #410 Marylou Corino with 781.5 points.

Steven Smith – Silverton Challenge 2015 – Run It Fast

Run It Fast’s Extreme Racer Standings (thru August 2015)

Steven Smith - Silverton Challenge 2015 - Run It Fast

Finally, we are beginning to see some cooler temperatures blowing in. Summer is slipping away and Autumn is making its appearance. Autumn is my favorite season. It brings with it not only cooler weather, but beautiful colors, warm flavors, crisp air, fun holidays and great races, too. And there are only a few months left in the year to accrue race miles and battle for the top spot in the Extreme Racer competition.

Having recently finished the Wasatch 100 and successfully attaining a victory in the “Slamwater” challenge (a combination of the Grand Slam of 100’s and Badwater 135 in the same summer), Run It Fast’s founder and leader RIF #1 Joshua Holmes is leading the men with 1250.8 points. However, RIF #387 Steven Smith is hot on his heels in second place with 1238.1 points after winning the Silverton Challenge 6-Day, only a 12.7 point difference. RIF #279 George Southgate takes third place with 1055 points.

RIF #473 Teal Clark has taken over the first place spot in our women’s leaderboard with 761.8 points. Only 2 points behind, RIF #287 Carol Earles takes second place with 759.8 points. And RIF #410 Marylou Corino takes third place with 731.5 points, only 28.3 points behind Carol.

Here are the Extreme Racer standings through August:
