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.

  2. Melissa Price – 15.08 miles
  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.

BR’s Top Performers of the Day

  1. Brenda Cross – 22.01 miles
  2. Lance McDermott – 20.13 miles

Laura Eriks – Race Across the USA Peak Performer of the Day

Day 1: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Rev Run Takes Lead Out of NYC

Day One of Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA started as the twelve teams left Battery Park in New York City on their 2,907 mile epic journey towards the West Coast. These teams seem to be, by and large, evenly match as they are filled with some of the most driven people from across the globe. We started with 132 runners from sixteen states and four countries.

All the teams were revved up out of the starting corrals, but Rev Run took off and made it all the way to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Day 1 to take the early lead. They finished the day with 172.83 miles and were led by Lisa Devon’s 33.03 miles.

About forty miles back of Rev Run there was a cluster of teams that included The Metcalvary, Mojo Rising, Breaking Glass, Crowe Bars, and Grapes of Rath all within 10 miles of each other.

All twelve teams are roughly between Allentown and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with Alfa’s Omegas deciding to be the Omegas…at least for today.

The Day’s Quick Team-by-Team Recaps

REV RUN- Day 1: 172.83 Miles (1st) – 1st overall

The odd’s on favorite wasted no time breaking loose out of New York City and claiming the yellow jersey for Day 1. They were led by a 1/3 slice of a 100 from Florida native Lisa Devona. The team had nearly half it’s members break 20 miles for the day.

  3. Ed Ettinghausen – 21.1 miles

THE METCALVARY – Day 1: 130.92 Miles (2nd) – 2nd overall

Team captain Jen Metcalf humbly voted her team as the favorite to win the race in a poll conducted earlier in the day. She stated, “My team doesn’t get out of bed for anything less than 1st place.” The Mets were led by Andrew Glaze with 24.44 miles. The California native started the race ‘fresh’ off a 200-mile week he completed before hopping his flight to NYC. The team is bedded down at the Lamp Lighter for the night.

  3. Elissa Higgins – 19.16 miles

MOJO RISING- Day 1: 128.82 Miles (3rd) – 3rd overall

This team must have thought it was bad mojo to hit 20 miles or more as all their top runners for the day stopped in the 19’s. They were led by Lindsay Phenix with 19.51 miles and got contributions from all everyone on their team today. They are two miles down the road from The Mets by the Penn Jersey Pork & Beef Farms. By the smell of things, there is no meat shortage as reported by several media outlets.

  2. Joshua Holmes – 19.11 miles
  3. Kit Brazier – 19.01 miles

KICKING GLASS – Day 1: 126.69 Miles (4th) – 4th overall

They are just two miles off the podium, and were led by Canadian Lisa Van Wolde’s 35.13 miles.  She had great support from Tiffani Glass with 21.08 miles and Barry Reece with 20.31. Both of them put up big miles on the inaugural Race Across the USA as well. They are currently positioned on the corner of Bloody Spring Rd and Power Dr.

GOR was a fierce 3-headed monster consisting of Kimberly Atkins 26.28 miles, Chris Clemens 25.02, and Tom Orr 24.23. Atkins and Clemens were on the same team of our last cross country journey and are heavy hitters. It would appear they packed the lumber for this race too. Orr was the breakout star last round, and he delivered today for his new team. GOR is only about a kilometer ahead of the Crowe Bars.

CROWE BARS – Day 1: 120.60 Miles (6th) – 6th overall

The Crowe Bars were led on day one by Steve Troxel with 31 miles.  Steve really set the tone for the team with his strong effort, but kept them loose with his newly braided pigtails. The Queen of Pinson Mounds, Marj Mitchell got all her gardening done over the weekend, because she made it clear she was going to bring the hammer starting on Monday morning for her new team. Did she ever…with 18.08 miles. The Bars are chasing GOR and plan to keep the heat on them tomorrow.

  1. Steve Troxel – 31.00 miles
  2. Marj Mitchell – 18.08 miles
  3. Seth Crowe – 17.38 miles

TRIP 2 MY LOU – Day 1: 115.56 Miles (7th) – 7th overall

A 50-spot on Day 1, much less from a rookie – Laura Eriks, is something to behold. Laura and team captain, Marylou Corino combined for 77.31 of the team’s 115.56 miles for the day. Their two-person total would have put them just 10 miles behind our 12th place team on the day. Quite appropriately, Laura’s legs and the team currently are positioned next to Lehigh Cement.

LOU’S Top Performers of the Day

  1. Laura Eriks – 50.02 miles
  2. Marylou Corino – 27.31 miles
  3. Jeremy Kluttz – 13.09 miles

THE BEETROOTS – Day 1: 104.30 Miles (8th) – 8th overall

The Roots were led by Carrie O’Bryan with a quarter spot. A strong race debut that helped her team break the century spot for the day. She had help from Florida native Amy Costa with 17.11 miles and Brenda Cross with 15.00. After dinner, the team spent a couple hours touring the Old Spokes Car Museum in New Smithville.

TUCK N’ STROLL – Day 1: 101.56 Miles (9th) – 9th overall

X marked the spot for TNS on Day 1 with 24.03 miles from Ximena Kriete. Ironically, our 9th place team is showing up on the map at Cloud Nine Pet Services. Hopefully, TNS will unleash the greyhounds tomorrow as they try to move into the top half of the field.

TNS’s Top Performers of the Day

  1. Ximena Kriete – 24.03 miles
  2. Donna Bullington – 15.02 miles
  3. Jd Barnette – 12.15 miles

PEERS ONE- Day 1: 90.95 Miles (10th) – 10th overall

Thomas Fowler did his part for Peers with a 31.51 mile marker. He told his teammates in their pre-race pep talk to get on his back and he’d carry them on Day 1. Perhaps he forgot to buckle them in before his torrid rampage. The team is camped out for the night by the Little Lehigh Creek.

ELI’S P.R. ICE – Day 1: 87.69 Miles (11th) – 11th overall

Former Vol State 500K winner Francesca Muccini led Eli’s PR Ice with 20.10 miles. The team got off to a bit of a slow start. Team captain Melissa Price contributed 15.50 miles. Eli’s is just south of Harrisburg with the Omegas tight on their tail.

ALFA’S OMEGAS – Day 1: 87.36 Miles (12th) – 12th overall

This race is all about pacing. It will test you as it’s relentless day, after day, after day. With that said, the Alfa’s should be fresh for Day 2. They were low on the totem pole today, but they can see teams in front of them they will be chasing tomorrow. They were led on Day 1 by team captain, Alfa Severino with 13.1 miles.

AO’s Top Performers of the Day

  1. Alfa Severino – 13.1 miles
