The Metcalvary Finisher Bib Frame

Day 19: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – The Metcalvary Cruises to 2nd Place

Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA had it’s second team finish when The Metcalvary reached the Santa Monica Pier early this afternoon.

The team was led by every runner on the team and had 100% participation over the 19 days.

Mileage wise they were led over the 19 days by Andy Glaze’s 479.13 miles and Randy Broadway’s 420.02 miles.

Jeffrey Price Team: Everyone that participated in this entire event was all smiles to hear that team captain Melissa Price ran the last few miles to the finish of this race in New York City earlier today. The team is named in memory of Melissa’s husband Jeffrey who passed away from cancer just weeks ago.

Melissa took this task on very soon after Jeffrey’s death and thrived leading and inspiring her team the entire way. Melissa put down big double-digit miles every single day. Such big miles at such a frequency she had never done before. It was obvious she was being shined down on and inspired from above. We are thankful for the Price family.

The Jeffrey Price Team was a force from the start. They kept pushing the team in front of them, and when the team behind them started sneaking up on them at the end, they floored the accelerator and finished the race with an impressive finish in 17 days, 15 hours, and 28 minutes.

Everyone on the team contributed and many runners stood out, but none no more impressive than Heather McComb who recorded 18 consecutive days of 20+ miles for this team. She finished the race with 380.42 miles.

Tom Orr was close on Heather’s heels every day and had the race of his life. He finished with 371.61 miles.

Karl Studtmann had multiple, massive mileage explosions of 60 miles.

Charlie Taylor Team: An explosive day from The Chucks as they attacked two-days worth of miles and tried to slam them down in one day. The end result was one of the highest mileage weekday totals of the entire race from any team. They finished the day with 195.96 miles.

The onslaught was led by Seth ‘Black Diamond’ Crowe, who in Gene Simmons fashion, promoted himself to 42.23 big miles. This guy is as tough as they come. Word on the street is that Seth eats nails for breakfast and sheet’s metal the rest of the day. Get all your metal needs at Reed’s Metals of Jackson, TN.

Seth had help, with double-30’s, from Elva Matamoros (30.58) and Tiffani Glass (30.40). Both of these women have been so strong day after day for The Chucks.

RIF #33 Robin Robbins dedicated his 13.59 miles for the day to the kids of St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Robin has raised thousands of dollars for St. Jude over the years and through many races he has participated in.

The Chucks are just 77.60 miles away from the finish in New York City. Tomorrow they will arrive and celebrate. It’s been a fun and encouraging journey the entire way for the team. Friendships have been made that will last for years. Epic performances were put down that will be remembered for several lifetimes.

Hope Shull Team:  Step-by-step, the Hope Shull Team will one day, perhaps, leave the great state of Tennessee. They were solid today behind Marylou Corino’s 30.37 miles and Kit Brazier’s 23.11 miles.

The team got double-digit miles from Megan Chiu (12.15), Ben Herron (11.62), and Randy Broadway (10.00).

Whoa…late word that The Hopes crossed the Tennessee border, near Bristol, and are now into Virginia. That’s great news.

Day 17: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Getting Downes to It

Run It Fast’s ‘Race Across the USA‘ had two themes on Day 17. The first being the strong day the Jeffrey Price Team put down with 183.82 miles to bring them just a 100 miles from reaching New York City tomorrow. The other one being the massive day that Cathy Downes threw down for the Hope Shull Team with 62.00 monster miles in one big bite. It led her team to a second place finish on the day. The Charlie Taylor Team battled through some injuries and grinded for 144.80 miles.

Let’s get into the stats, standings, and recaps from the road…

Jeffrey Price Team: Badwater vet Karla Kent drove this team hard today putting down 25.17 miles and was one of four from the team to put down 20+ miles. She was joined by Tom Orr with 21.36 miles, Alfa Severino (21.30), and Heather ‘Double-Dime’ McComb (20.20). Karl Studtmann also chipped in with a solid 18.11 miles.

The team finished with 183.82 miles, the most of any team on the day.

The Jeffs are just 100 miles away from celebrating a second place finish in New York City. The team is spending the night in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Well, we’re living here in Allentown
And they’re closing all the factories down
Out in Bethlehem, they’re killing time
Filling out forms
Standing in line
Well, our fathers fought the Second World War
Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
Met our mothers at the USO
Asked them to dance
Danced with them slow
And we’re living here in Allentown
But the restlessness was handed down
And it’s getting very hard to stay
Well, we’re waiting here in Allentown
– Billy Joel

  5. Karl Studtmann – 18.11

Charlie Taylor Team: The wear-and-tear was very visible on The Chucks today. However, they still had 100% participation. They still encouraged each other. They picked each other up. And they still pieced together 144.80 miles.

Elva Matamoros dodged mountain lions to record 18.48 miles, while Steve Acciarito dug deep to get 15.30 miles. Jen ‘Big Sexy’ Metcalf threw down a perfect 10.0.

The Queen of Pinson Mounds, Marj Mitchell, put down her second biggest mileage day of the race with 15.12 miles. Seth Crowe continued to be the rhythm of this team with 12.16 miles.

The Chucks believe they will get to NYC on Friday night.

The last mile they put down near the cut-off tonight crossed them from Virginia into West Virginia. Jeremy Reed and Jemal Swoboda herded the team into ‘Touch of Texas’ thinking it was a massage parlor with cowgirls. It turned out to be a cowboy bar with cowgirls that danced a lot more like they were from Houston than Dallas (if you know, you know). After Steve was oiled up from his rough day on the ashalt, the team was able to encourage Marj to ride the mechanical, bucking bull. Marj said as she walked up to get on, “I grew up in South Africa in the arms of lions and tigers in my bed. I don’t think this little American bull will do much.” If you haven’t by now, then you will likely see the video footage from a Chucks team member’s phone of exactly how that ride went down. Robin Robbins was vehement as he walked out that he was going to be running tomorrow in his ‘Astro-World’ cowboy hat that one of the dancers tossed his way as he was trying to finish his onion rings and strawberry malt.

I was took in Texas, I did not know her name
Lord, all these southern girls all seem the same
Down below the border in a town in Mexico
I got my job busting broncs in the rodeo
Roll me over and turn me around
Let me keep spinning ’til I hit the ground
Roll me over and let me go
Running free with the buffalo
Here I go
– Thin Lizzy

The legs might be tired, but team chemistry is at an all-time high.

Hope Shull Team:  It was the Cathy Downes’ show on Wednesday for The Hopes with her 62.00 miles…or as we Americans like to call it, a ‘Canadian 100.’ Perhaps it was a shout-out to team captain Marylou Corino, who recorded 15.00 of her own miles.

Kit Brazier was fantastic once again with 20.09 miles. Sherry Meador and Ben Herron also put up 10+ spots for the team.

The team is still in Tennessee, and being Mare’s favorite state they might just take a few more days, or a week,  mozing on through the Volunteer State.

Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain’t no place I’d rather be
Baby won’t you carry me back to Tennessee
Drink all day and rock all night
The law come to get you if you don’t walk right
Got a letter this morning, baby all it read
You better head back to Tennessee Jed

Day 16: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Kid Danger

Run It Fast’s ‘Race Across the USA‘ continued into the 16th day even as The Suzy Michelson Team kept partying throughout the day, overflowing from the celebration’s start last night. The three remaining teams continued to make progress today towards joining them in New York City.

The Charlie Taylor Team won the day with 157.54 miles. It’s their 3rd day win over the last week. They were followed closely by the Jeffrey Price Team with 146.14 miles. The Hope Shull Team almost cracked 100 miles, finishing just under the mark with 99.45 miles.

Let’s get into the stats, standings, and recaps from the road…

Jeffrey Price Team: The Jeffs were a close second place for the day, and only lost 10 miles of their lead on third place. They have a strong lead that should be tough for The Chucks to surpass.

It was the Tom and Heather Show once again with Heather ‘Double-Dime’ McComb running 20.55 miles and Tom Orr completing just under that number with 20.35. Its Heather’s 16th consecutive day of 20+ miles, a race record.

The (My) Pillars helping push this team today included Alfa Severino (19.55) who continued her hot streak, team captain Melissa Price (16.61), and big John Leighton with 14.55 miles.

The team is currently in Winchester, Virginia.

They are just 418 miles from New York City and hope to get there on Saturday. They are currently in Lexington, Virginia at the Virginia Safari Park in search of the real Tiger King.

Ben Herron chipped in with 8.32 miles and Cathy Downes had 8.33.

But the big story on the day for the team came from 9-year old Juleann Roberts who came through with 10.22 miles, her first double-digit day of the race. It was a huge help for the Hope Shull Team. Juleann now has 87.53 miles for the race and should crack 100 miles before the race is over (she’s everything Ohrey is not).
