Big, big day and miles for The Roots. They had nearly matching mileage days from Amy Costa and Kendra Schoffstall. Both were vital in leading the team to a 4th place finish on the day.

ALFA’S OMEGAS – Day 10: 118.94 Miles (6th) – 5th overall

The Alfa’s rise in the standings is no fluke. Everyone showed up for work again today for a solid 6th place finish. It was enough to move the team up a spot in the overall standings. They were led once again by team captain Alfa Severino. Her top helpers on the day were Ryan Malecha (15.30) and Kelly Paul (13.21).

The team is in Pottsville, Arkansas.

AO’s Top Performers of the Day

The team is getting contributions from everyone, but the big-mileage power punch just hasn’t been there the last few days. Lindsay Phenix was solid increasing her mileage once again with 23.52 miles. Mojo is in 6th overall but just 53 miles behind third place. Still a lot of days left in the race to make up that distance.

  1. Lindsay Phenix – 23.52 miles
  2. Joshua Holmes – 18.10 miles

KICKING GLASS – Day 10: 141.37 Miles (2nd) – 9th overall

What a wonderful day for The Glass. They were 2nd place on the day beating everyone but Rev Run. It came from strong performances by Lisa Van Wolde (25.12 miles), Tiffani Glass (20.24), and Joan Lamayo-Buse (14.52). The Chiu brothers, Brendan and Justin, combined for 22.67 miles which really helped KG knock on Reverend’s door.

PEERS ONE- Day 10: 57.88 Miles (12th) – 10th overall

Team morale is down for  P-1 with the race ending injury to it’s big miler Thomas Fowler. Captain Rich Peers continues to lead by example, but he might need to dig deep for a Knute Rockne speech to amp up the rest of the team to help make up Fowler’s missing miles. Steve Durbin got in 8.18 on the day, and Diane Taylor landed on 6.49 miles.

The team is in Germantown, Tennessee.

  3. John Leighton – 10.73 miles

THE BEETROOTS – Day 10: 69.76 Miles (11th) – 12th overall

The Beetroots get a race report today. The good news is Brenda Cross (22.01), Lance McDermott (20.13), and Leslie Studtmann (13.10) contributed wonderfully for The Roots today. The bad news is those three made up 55.24 of the team’s 69.76 miles. As in the other eight members of the team contributed 14.52 miles total. Is this the same team that had 145.86 miles this past Sunday?

The team is in Brownsville, Tennessee being chased by a swarm of killer hornet bees.

Lisa Devona – Rainbow – Run It Fast Race Across the USA – Day 9

Day 9: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Holiday Hangover Edition

Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA no doubt had a ‘Holiday Hangover’ on Day 9. The fewest total miles were recorded of the entire race to date. Some things didn’t change though. Rev Run still had the most miles for the day and padded their insurmountable lead. The Metcalvary, our second place overall team, had the second most miles on the day. So those teams were lock-n-key.

Where we saw the best performances outside of the two two came from Grapes of Rath, third place on the day with 141.64 points, and Alfa’s Omega’s 133.29, miles on the day for fourth. Both of these teams moved up two spots in the standings. GOR to third and AO to sixth. They were the only teams in the race to outperform their daily averages.

The Top 5 Teams on Day 9

  1. Rev Run – 175.09
  2. The Metcalvary – 144.53
  3. Grapes of Rath – 141.64
  4. Alfa’s Omegas – 133.29
  5. Mojo Rising – 115.14
