Day 14 Run It Fast Race Across the USA Map

Day 14: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Rev Run’s Record Setting Win

Rev Run blistered 2,907 miles over the course of 13 days, 20 hours, 17 minutes to win Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA. The great Lisa Devona ran her team onto the Santa Monica Pier in California in reaching the Pacific Ocean. The entire team was waiting and holding a ‘2,907 Miles – Sub-14 Days’ banner that Lisa tore through. It was fitting considering her phenomenal 500-mile performance over the past two weeks.

The powerhouse led by team captain David Pharr had daily contributions from every runner. A team of superstars that lifted up and inspired each other from #1 o- # 11 on their daily scorecard.

We all remember where we were when Michael Jordan hit ‘The Shot,’ and we all will always remember the hour and minute that this team finished the most perfect race in U.S.A. running history.

On a day of national upheaval, Rev Run finished on the Santa Monica Pier less than 45 minutes before the 6pm curfew city officials had put in place just a hour before.

The 11-person team averaged 207.64 miles per day, a daily average of 18.88 miles/per runner.

It took a Herculean effort to finish before the weekend cascaded as the team needed 536.70 miles coming into the weekend to make it happen. True to their mutant ethos they ran 292.46 miles yesterday (average of 26.79/runner), to leave a measly chip shot of 244.24 miles from the Mojave Desert to finish today. And they did it, rather easily, with almost four hours to spare.

They were led on the final day by Ed ‘the Jester Ettinghausen’s 100K mic drop, and Lisa’s 50-mile exclamation point giving her 500.78 miles for the race. And in what would have easily led many other teams today, Rev had big miles from Sherry Meador’s 34.11, Karl Studtmann’s 32.19, and Emily Ryan’s 32.08.

Rev Run finished today with our second place team 700 miles behind in Arizona.

“I think the Suzys were a perfect storm of talent and opportunity. If you were the have that same event every year, I think that is the kind of record that would stand for a very long time.

Result of random selection, though I doubt there could have been a much stronger team if chosen on purpose. It was fun to watch. Like one of those rare sports team that is just better than everyone else. You just have to sit back and applaud.” – Karl Studtmann (May 3, 2020)

Twenty-eight days later, Rev Run, including Karl, randomly drawn together for The Return Voyage, beat the Suzy Michelson Team’s time of 14 days, 21 hours, 10 min, from the inaugural Run It Fast’ Race Across the USA, by a full day and 53 minutes – with four less runners on our teams for the return trip. It would seem highly improbable now that Rev’s time of 13 days, 20 hours, 17 min will ever be challenged but only time will tell.

REV RUN- Day 13: 292.46 Miles (1st) – 1st overall

How does a team of 11 knock on the door of 300? Well, the answer is below from 1 to 11. On a team of Ace’s the biggest one today was Rene Holcomb with 26.20 miles. Rene, who has inspired many on both treks across the country, had her biggest mileage day of either race. She was magnificent, as was every single member on this team today, and throughout the entire race.

Rev crossed the California border and is currently in the Mojave Desert on I-40.

There is a good chance they finish this thing by sunset tomorrow on the Santa Monica Pier. Only 244.24 miles to go!!

One would seem to be able to predict the mileage for the Yo-Yo’s tomorrow, but predictions are easy to make with no money on the line.

The team is currently in Biscoe, Arkansas

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

Once upon a time Marylou Corino said she was going to take it a bit easier on ‘The Return Voyage’ after a massive amount of miles on the initial journey. Instead she’s turned it up even more. She led her team once again today with 26.50 miles. She had help from Jeremy Kluttz (18.50) and Christy Brewer (15.00).

The team is near Wheatley, Arkansas.

A devastating day for Peers One. They finished 11th on the day but that wasn’t the bad news. Thomas Fowler, their team leader in miles with 208.57 miles, is injured and likely out for the rest of the journey. He will be driving the team RV and in charge of making the grilled cheeses and milkshakes the rest of the way to Cali…barring a miracle.

Run It Fast Race Across the USA Map Day 8

Day 8: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Memorial Day

Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA paused today to remember those that have fallen serving our country and thank everyone that has to protect our land and freedoms.

On the road today, the Harlem Globetrotters were up to their usual tricks and domination of their opponents. They ended the day with 193.61 miles which is about their magic spot during the workweek.

In the Washington Generals division, the race saw The Metcalvary continue to create separation from the other ten teams. Currently the Rev’s are on another planet, then there is The Metcalvary creating it’s own modular radius around them.

The biggest bounce up today came from Kicking Glass that finished 3rd on the day with 138.48 miles, a 40-mile jump from yesterday.

[aside: Tuck n’ Stroll’s Doug Barnette played several years on the Washington Generals, never once beating the Globetrotters. As a member of the Generals, they were something like 0-345.]

The Top 5 Teams on Day 8

  1. Rev Run – 193.61
  2. The Metcalvary – 148.64
  3. Kicking Glass – 138.48
  4. Tuck n’ Stroll – 137.44
  5. Mojo Rising – 131.82

Today on Memorial Day we had two veterans that really above and beyond their normal mileage to remember those who have fallen in combat for our freedom. Two truly amazing performances today.

J.d. Barnette (Tuck n’ Stroll) and David Essary (Alfa’s Omega’s, photographed above) are the Race Across the USA’s Peak Performers of the day with 31.20 and 32.20 miles, respectively. A big thank you to both of these guys along with all the other men and women in our race who have served or are serving to protect us.

THE METCALVARY – Day 8: 148.64 Miles (2nd) – 2nd overall

Jen Metcalf has captained The Mets into a strong grip of 2nd place overall. They likely won’t catch Rev Run, but she has the team in a spot where no team behind them will likely catch them, as well.

Not a massive day from anyone, but really solid days from so many that gave them the 2nd most miles on the day. Elissa Higgins, a rising star, led the team with 22.08 miles. She was followed by Erik Pascual with 21.48, and Randy ‘Mustaine’ Broadway has been rock (n’ roll) solid every day.

The team is in Little Rock, Arkansas.

CROWE BARS – Day 8: 116.30 Miles (8th) – 4th overall

A relaxing day of BBQ, yard-darts, and cake-pops at the Crowe Bars n’ Grill. Steve Troxel, taking a step back from his 50K-a-day, still knocked down a double-dime (20.37 miles). Amy Hazlewood was splendid again with 18.32 miles and Cathy Downes rebounded from her big Saturday to have 18.29 today.

The team is in Bartlett, Tennessee which might explain why their miles were down and spirits were high. Fleet Feet – Jackson owner Danny Crossett was reportedly seen with the team earlier and likely the leader in their Memorial Day celebration.

  1. Steve Troxel – 20.37 miles
  2. Amy Hazlewood – 18.32 miles
  3. Cathy Downes – 18.29 miles

GOR tore down I-40 today between Jackson and Memphis. With the temps up, and tired legs-a-dragging, team captain Scott Kufferath decided to take the team to Adventure River to enjoy the water slides and wave pool. It seemed to work as the team had a bit more lift in their legs late in the afternoon when they got back to putting miles on the road.

They were led in miles today by Chris Clemens with 33.o0. Lisamarie Griffin ran 23.02 miles and Elva Matamoros ran 17.88.

They were led by Audrey Davis with 24.08 miles. JR Reynolds continued his shirtless work with another strong day of 23.84 miles. Lindsay Phenix upped her mileage for the 8th consecutive day to 23.24 miles.

The team is currently near Mason, Tennessee. They enjoyed dinner at the original Gus’s World Famous Chicken…sweet tea, fried pickles, chicken, and chess pie. Does it get any better?

  1. Audrey Davis – 24.08 miles
  2. JR Reynolds – 23.84 miles
  3. Lindsay Phenix – 23.24 miles

TRIP 2 MY LOU – Day 8: 104.51 Miles (10th) – 7th overall

A drop in miles for the Lou’s and down two spots in the standings, but not really a huge deal as most everyone was down a bit today. They are in 7th overall but less than a mile behind Mojo.

They were led by team captain Marylou Corino’s 27.20 miles. Russ Metteer continued his 3-day hot streak with 23.03 miles. Christy Brewer, currently passing through her hometown of Memphis, contributed a total of 13.10 miles for Lou.

ALFA’S OMEGAS – Day 8: 118.16 Miles (7th) – 8th overall

David ‘Five-O’ Essary really dug deep all day to compile 32.30 miles for the Alfa’s. He was magnificent, and the Alfa’s really needed those miles to save the day. Essary got to see his wife and children as the race came down I-40 close to his homestead in Lexington.

The Alfa’s miles were down a good bit from yesterday, but they still placed higher on the day than they are overall which is good.

Team captain Alfa Severino added 20.28 miles. Allison Barcelona landed on 14.93 for the day.

The most impressive performance of the day came from Kicking Glass with 138.48 miles, 3rd most on the day. It didn’t bump them up in the overall standings, but it moved them a lot closer to the teams ahead of them.

Team captain Tiffani Glass led the way with 26.41 miles. Canadian Lisa Van Wolde ran 22.03 miles, and Aaron Debord ran 20.05.

Day 6: Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA – Mad Miles

Everyone knew that Day 6 of Run It Fast’s Race Across the USA would be explosive with miles, but it somehow went even beyond that. As usual we were led by Rev Run with 253.18 miles. They AVERAGED 23.02 miles per runner today with a ceiling of 41.27. Just simply amazing on all fronts.

Rev Run is so gung-ho that we received this message Sherry Meador sent to team captain David Pharr:

We might end up making this race into a reality tv show in future editions.

But Rev wasn’t the only amazing team on Saturday. Tuck n’ Stroll rose to 226.98 miles, along with The Metcalvary eclipsing the double-hundo mark with 218.60 miles. Bottom feeders Alfa’s Omegas and Peers One had really great days with strong miles from top to bottom.

The race leaders are already in Arkansas as the other eleven teams are all in Tennessee.

The Day’s Quick Team-by-Team Recaps

REV RUN- Day 6: 253.18 Miles (1st) – 1st overall

Monster miles from the monster team, four Rev’s had 32 or more miles. But this team had big miles from members on the team that don’t always get the headlines, too. Renee Holcomb, dug deep, and came home with 15.03 miles. Jeff Lea donated a half marathon of miles. And the aforementioned Sherry ‘Girls Gone Wild’ Meador with 16.81 miles and 77 new friend requests. Emily Ryan had 20.21 miles, and Jeremy Reid 16.74. Once again, major kudos to Rev Run on a historic day.

Kelly Tipple was big with 25.04 miles. The Mets had 6 runners go for 20 or more miles. They moved into 2nd place and have a firm grasp of it.

  3. Kelly Tipple – 25.04 miles

TUCK N’ STROLL – Day 6: 226.98 Miles (2nd) – 3rd overall

The Tucks were 2nd overall on the day with 226.98 miles behind 66.10 mega-pore miles from Rene Fosdal-Griffin. Shane Tucker (34.67) and Ximena Kriete (31.48) were amazing as they both have been all week long. Rene’s big miles along with big miles from Jd Barnette (18.79) and Henriet Blodgett (20.00) are really the reason this team skyrocketed today. TNS jumped four spots from 7th all the way up to 3rd place. This time might be in it to win it (mortal division).

  1. Rene Fosdal-Griffin – 66.10 miles
  2. Shane Tucker – 34.67 miles
  3. Ximena Kriete – 31.48 miles

CROWE BARS – Day 6: 180.68 Miles (5th) – 4th overall

103.7 plays the best of the 90’s hits and Tag Team was back again with Cathy Downes and Seth Crowe doing near matching half-centuries on the comp. Combined they nearly netted the miles from our 12th place team today. But lets not forget Steve Troxel, the master of the 50k, who is a constant for the Bars. The heart and soul of this team though might be Marj Mitchell, who recorded 20.31 for the day and has 109.14 over the last six.

CB’s Top Performers of the Day

  1. Cathy Downes – 52.50 miles
  2. Seth Crowe – 50.05 miles
  3. Steve Troxel – 31.37 miles

MOJO RISING- Day 6: 125.32 Miles (11th) – 5th overall

The new car smell has left Mojo Rising. Their overall miles were decent if it had been a weekday, but they got blown out on this mega-watt weekend day finishing an abysmal 11th place. They fell all the way from the #2 spot to fifth in the overall standings. Lindsay Phenix and JR Reynolds were strong as usual. Kevin Lashley had his biggest day of the race so far with 17.02 miles. Donna Burns really stepped it up with 13.93 miles. Tomorrow will be an interesting day to see if they can save the weekend with a strong performance.

  1. Lindsay Phenix – 22.70 miles
  2. JR Reynolds – 21.65 miles
  3. Kevin Lashley – 17.02 miles

Seventh for the day, seventh overall. That’s consistency. The Lou’s were led by Russ Metteer with 39.63 miles. Team captain Marylou Corino had 27.00 miles and Memphian Christy Brewer had a nice contribution to the team with 23.89 miles. Also, Ray Berlanga upped his game adding 9.70 miles.

ALFA’S OMEGAS – Day 6: 189.11 Miles (4th) – 8th overall

Alfa-like on Day 6 for AO. They came really close to breaking 200 miles for the day, and it’s because every member on their team ran at least double-digit miles including a team high 32.24 from captain Alfa Severino. She was followed by Allison Barcelona with 21.02 miles and Houston Wolf with 20.04.

AO’s Top Performers of the Day

  2. Allison Barcelona- 21.02 miles
  3. Houston Wolf – 20.04 miles

PEERS ONE- Day 6: 162.05 Miles (6th) – 9th overall

Peers was superb today with a 6th place daily finish with 162.05 miles after a rough day yesterday. Thomas Fowler was back strong breaking 30 again with 31.03 miles. He had a 30-buddy with team captain Rich Peers getting 31.17. Sofie Romero was very close to the 30 club with 27.97 miles. 9-year old Juleann Roberts also had a big day with 11.60 miles.

PR’s Top Performers of the Day

  1. Thomas Fowler – 32.03 miles
  2. Rich Peers – 31.17 miles
  3. Sofie Romero – 27.97 miles

KICKING GLASS – Day 6: 146.16 Miles (9th) – 10th overall

A solid day for Kicking Glass. They were led by Yvette Campos, who nearly tripled her daily average, with 31.13 miles. Aaron Debord dug for 23.01 and Lisa Van Wolde had 18.10 miles.

KG’s Top Performers of the Day

  3. Lisa Van Wolde – 18.10 miles

ELI’S P.R. ICE – Day 6: 146.22 Miles (8th) – 11th overall

I’m not sure any team works harder than Eli’s. They give all they have and are trending upward as this race unfolds. They came into the day in last place, but finished 8th on the day, jumping a spot to 11th overall. They were led once again by Francesca Muccini with 31.23 miles, and she was nearly matched by Abbi Auger with 31.05. Ed Barnette had a 16.15 mile day, his most miles so far, in memory of his good friend David Clark who passed a couple days ago. David was loved by many, and his untimely passing is a big loss to the ultra running community.

ELI’S Top Performers of the Day

  1. Francesca Muccini – 31.23 miles
  2. Abbi Auger – 31.05 miles
  3. Ed Barnette – 16.15 miles

THE BEETROOTS – Day 6: 103.84 Miles (12th) – 12th overall

The Yo-Yo’s were spun out far and tangled up with the fewest miles on the day, falling a spot back into 12th place in the race. However, they did have a really strong day from Glenn Richardson with 31.10 miles. Lance McDermott (20.01) and Leslie Studtmann (16.06) did their part.
