“You don’t run against a bloody stop watch, do you hear?  A runner runs against himself, against the best that’s in him.  Not against a dead thing of wheels and pulleys.  That’s the way to be great, running against yourself.  Against all the rotten mess in the world.  Against God, if you’re good enough.”  ~Bill Persons

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

George Southgate photo by Tim Rogan - Run It Fast

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.

John Leighton Wins Run It Fast’s 2015 Extreme Racer (Final Standings)

John Leighton 2015 Extreme Racer Champion Collage - Run It Fast

RIF #190 John Leighton, the Susan Lucci of the Extreme Racer challenge with several runner-up finishes, is Run It Fast’s 2015 Extreme Racer of the Year with 1,706.27 points. That’s over, 1,700 miles of racing that covered several states.

“All they found of John back in Ohio was a muddy set of running clothes, a bar of soap, and an old pair of Hokas, damn near worn down to the nub. I remember thinking it would take a man six hundred years to race as far as he did. Old John did it in less than three hundred sixty-five days..

John ran, walked, and crawled to freedom through seventeen hundred race miles of sh!t smelling foulness I can’t even imagine, or maybe I just don’t want to. Seventeen hundred miles… that’s the length of 29,920 football fields, just shy of 9 million feet.” – JohnShank Redemption

John had just enough points, with a final push on the last day of the year, to eclipse RIF #279 George Southgate who finished in second place for the year with 1,592.2 points.

Third place once again this year went to RIF #1 Joshua Holmes with 1,456.2 points.

Congrats to John on being the Run It Fast’s 2015 Extreme Racer of the Year!

RIF Extreme Racer Banner 2015 Winner

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

John Leighton Winter Run - Run It Fast

The conclusion of November brought the Run It Fast – Extreme Racer standings into an extremely tight competition as the top three overall were separated by less than 42 points with John Leighton leading the way with 1,458.67. Following closely in 2nd was George Southgate with 1,427.1 points and in Joshua Holmes in 3rd place with 1,417.5 points.

When we look at the women’s side we have a new leader as well as Arkansas native Teal Clark takes over the pole position with 1,124.1 points. Diane Bolton, last year’s Extreme Racer top female, moves into 2nd place with 1,077.06 points. Patricia Klein drops to third with a staggering 1,069.4 points to round out an extremely competitive leaderboard amongst the women.

With one month to go…actually just a couple more weeks left in the year…it will be interesting to see who can knock off more race miles while finishing their races. DNF miles do not count towards ER points. Will John and Teal be able to hold on to their top spots or will George, Diane, or Patricia be able to over take them? We will know soon enough.

Thank you to all RIF members who have submitted race points throughout the year.

Run It Fast’s Extreme Racer Standings (Thru May 2015)

George Southgate photo by Tim Rogan - Run It Fast

Since I am sitting here following the Western States Endurance Run 100 progress (where several RIF members, including RIF #1 and founder Joshua Holmes, are laying down the miles and getting close to the finish line), now is as good of a time as any to tally up the Extreme Racer points for the year through May.

Last year’s winner has joined the pack this month and entered his miles for the year. However, I am surprised to see that he is not in first place so far. Leading the way is RIF #279 George Southgate with 768.6 points. Second place is held by RIF #190 John Kent Leighton with 744.15 points. Last year’s winner, RIF #121 Ed Ettinghausen takes third place with 704.02 points.

RIF #159 Diane Bolton is in first for the women with 395.6 points. Following very close behind is RIF #450 Patricia Klein with 394.4 points. Third place is held by RIF #358 Belinda Young with 393.1 points. With a 2.5 point difference between first and third place, one race could completely rearrange the order of placings here for next month.

Here are the Extreme Racer standings through May:

June has been a busy month for Run It Fast members, especially with Run It Fast’s own Jackal Marathon series, which ran for 5 consecutive days during the third week in June, so I’m sure these numbers will increase dramatically and placings will change all over the board. As always, Run It Fast members continue to inspire and amaze by pushing their boundaries and testing their limits. I look forward to seeing what the rest of the year holds for this incredible group of determined runners.
