It’s hard to believe how fast 2015 has flown by. We are looking towards the end of the year, and the last few months in the Extreme Racer competition for 2015. Even though there are only 3 months left to accrue race points, this time of year brings some of my favorite races, at least in this corner of the world. The Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon, Tunnel Hill 100/50 miler, and RIF’s own Black Diamond 40 miler, Double Black Diamond 40 miler, and Sequoyah series are all taking place in November and each will be a reunion of sorts for many RIF members who plan to attend.

Founder and RIF #1 Joshua Holmes is still in the lead with 1350.8 points. Only 81.7 points behind is RIF #387 Steven Smith with 1269.1 points. Taking third place is RIF #190 John Kent Leighton with 1207.17 points.

The top women seem to be continuously shaking things up. RIF #450 Patricia Klein has taken over first place with 965.7 points. Coming in second place is RIF #473 Teal Clark with 869 points. And in third place is Canadian RIF #410 Marylou Corino with 781.5 points.

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!

Ed Jester Ettinghausen 100 Mile Record Run It Fast

Ed’ The Jester’ Ettinghausen Breaks Record for Most 100 Milers in a Year

Ed Jester Ettinghausen 100 Mile Record Run It Fast

Ed Ettinghausen, known in most circles at ‘The Jester,’ tonight set the World Record for Most 100 Milers in a calendar year with his 37th of 2014. He broke the old record held by the great Liz Bauer who had accumulated 36 of them back in 2012.

The record tying and record breaking runs took place in Bonita, California at a small event titled aptly Jester’s World Record Run. He finished #37 with a time of 36 hours 17 minutes.

Finisher’s of JWRR received a belt buckle with, you guessed it, the Jester’s face on it.

The Jester still has plans to run three more 100 milers in 2014 to finish the year with 40.

Congrats to Ed and his wife Martha (super crew) on this impressive accomplishment.

[Ed (RIF #121) is a member of Run It Fast – The Club since 2012]

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.

[Extreme Racer points are rewarded per each racing mile completed. Example: marathon = 26.2 points, half marathon 13.1 points, etc.]
