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:

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

IMG_2427

July was a busy and exciting month for many Run It Fast members, as it hosts both the Last Annual Vol State 500k and Badwater 135. These two races helped several RIF members to rake in the race miles, which has no doubt given us quite a shake-up in the standings for the Extreme Racer competition.

Somehow, our top 3 men managed to hang on to their spots. Leading the way, is RIF #1 Joshua Holmes with 1150.8 points. Second place is held by RIF #279 George Southgate with 974 points. Coming in third place is RIF #190 John Kent Leighton with 897.67 points.

We have had a change in our leading females, as Canadian record holder and 2015 finisher of the Vol State 500k, RIF #410 Marylou Corino has taken over first place with 731.5 points. Moving up to second place is RIF #450 Patricia Klein with 685.7 points and taking third place is RIF #287 Carol Earles with 681.2 points.

34. Debra Jacildo – 19.1 (RIF #98)
35. Laura Ann Evanoika – 13.1 (RIF #433)

Here are a few numbers to wrap your mind around:
In 2015, 11 Run It Fast members finished the Last Annual Vol State 500k, meaning that RIF covered 3,454 miles at one race, in one year. Just from what I can tell at taking a quick look, it looks as though RIF members from 2011 to present have finished LAVS 31 times. That is 10,048 miles on one course. That does not count the miles covered up to a DNF, and I’m sure there are probably a few finishes that I missed in counting. Still, that number is the equivalent of running from the east coast to the west coast roughly 3.14 times. That is a lot of miles and extremely impressive.

This group of extraordinary people continues to awe me on a daily basis. No matter where you are or what kind of running you’re doing, you are making a difference and there is always someone watching. Someone you are inspiring to get up, get out, and get active. We are all changing peoples lives, even if we don’t realize it.

Happy running!

5 Jackal Marathoners in 5 Days: David Oglesby, Diane Bolton, Anthony Ohrey, Leslie Harwell, Joshua Holmes

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

5 Jackal Marathoners in 5 Days: David Oglesby, Diane Bolton, Anthony Ohrey, Leslie Harwell, Joshua Holmes

This has been a very busy summer for Run It Fast members all over the globe, and the Extreme Racer standings are constantly changing. June was the host month of Run It Fast’s own Jackal Marathons, a series of 5 marathons in 5 days held in 3 different locations in West Tennessee. Several RIF members racked up race miles over the course of those 5 days, some running more than one marathon. There were 5 awesome people who ran all 5 Jackal marathons: RIF #1 Joshua Holmes, RIF #159 Diane Bolton, RIF #417 Leslie Harwell, RIF #19 David Oglesby, and RIF #27 Anthony Ohrey. Between the mileage, the heat, the humidity and the bugs, the conditions were rough and all of the runners battled each day to finish. Every runner who took home a medal deserves a big congratulations, but these particular 5 who finished all 5 days deserve an outstanding round of applause and all the respect that can be mustered.

Having run all 5 Jackal marathons in June along with 51 miles at RUTS and the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, #1 Joshua Holmes is now leading the men with 915.8 points. Joshua just finished the Vermont 100 last week, and will be running the Badwater 135 next week, so he will likely be leading the standings for July as well. Coming in second place is RIF #279 George Southgate with 836.5 points. And rounding out our top 3 men is RIF #190 John Kent Leighton.

Leading our females is RIF #287 Carol Earles with 625.7 points. In second place is RIF #450 Patricia Klein with 604 points. Coming in third place is RIF #473 Teal Clark with 597.7 points.

No matter where you are in your running adventure, keep on doing your thing. You are an inspiration and you are amazing. You never know who is watching or who you have encouraged to step out of their comfort zone, into a world that will change their lives forever. Keep being you.

Congratulations to our winners and all of those that placed in the top 10, to those who hit their mileage goals for the year, completed a new distance or ran a PR this year! Remember, it’s not really about how many miles you run or how fast you run them. It’s about the enjoyment of the sport and making so many new friends along the way.

Another year has come and gone, and many miles were shared with friends or tread with quiet solitude. We cannot count the number of laughs or painful tears shed, the number of toenails lost, gels eaten or swear words spit out in a fit of exhaustion and frustration, so we count the distance instead, which is a mild representation of the journey we have traveled.

Many do not understand our masochism or the amount of soul-searching, gut-wrenching determination and heart that goes into the art of distance running. But as fellow runners, we can all appreciate and understand someone’s pain and suffering, joy and victory that is represented by the label of their yearly mileage.

So as the year comes to a close, let’s take a moment to celebrate those who have both suffered and celebrated the most this year.

As an added bonus, here are some stats to wrap your mind around:

  • The RIF men participating in the Extreme Racer competition raced a total of 18,000.28 miles in 2014.
  • The RIF women participating in the Extreme Racer competition raced a total of 11,043.64 miles in 2014.
  • That makes a total of 29,043.93 miles raced by RIF members in 2014, but ONLY those who entered their race miles for the year.
  • Only 52 RIF members entered their yearly race miles for 2014 and RIF now has over 400 members.
  • Assuming these numbers are a good representation of RIF in it’s entirety, that would be about 232,351.44 miles RACED by RIF members in one year.
  • That’s a little over 9 times around the Earth’s equator.
  • I wonder what the number would be if we counted training miles, too.

That’s a lot of mileage. You guys are so amazing and inspiring. What an honor to be a part of such an incredible group!

Run It Fast’s Extreme Racer Standings (October 2014)

BLU 100 - Ed Ettinghausen and Joshua Holmes - Beyond Limits Ultra 100 - 2013

We are down to two months left in 2014. It is crazy how fast time goes by. Especially when you’re having fun! And what’s more fun than racing, right?

I love watching the race points accrue each month and seeing how the lineup changes. We have had a bit of a shake-up in the top male leaderboard. Holding on to first place, of course, is RIF #121 Ed Ettinghausen. Ed “The Jester”, after updating his points and tacking on an extra almost 1000 points, comes in at 3463.8 points for the year through October. Holding on to second place is RIF #1 Joshua Holmes with 1305.3 points. However, RIF #190 John Kent Leighton has taken over third place with 1182.9 points. Way to go, John!

The ladies are all holding on to their spots, for the time being. In first place with 1212.56 points is RIF #159 Diane Bolton. Coming in at  a close second is RIF #323 Jennifer Hatcher with 1026.9 points. Also close behind in third place is RIF #287 Carol Earles with 867.3 points. I will be interested to see where each of these ladies stand at the end of November.

Here are the standings through October:

24. Deb Palmer-Distante – 13.1 (RIF #351)

 

Even though there are only two months left in the year, there are still a lot of great races where you can rack up on points. I know several RIF members dominated at Tunnel Hill 100/50 miler this weekend, and other races coming up like Run It Fast’s own Black Diamond, Double Black Diamond, and Sequoyah at the end of this month. Anything can happen.

Whatever you do, keep running, keep racing and keep inspiring others.
