  3. Donna Bullington – 15.00 miles

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

  1. Alfa Severino – 20.05 miles

  3. Kelly Paul – 13.21 miles

MOJO RISING- Day 10: 109.68 Miles (9th) – 6th overall

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.

The team is in Happy Bend, Arkansas.

MR’s Top Performers of the Day

  1. Lindsay Phenix – 23.52 miles
  2. Joshua Holmes – 18.10 miles
  3. Audrey Davis – 11.02 miles

CROWE BARS – Day 10: 110.95 Miles (8th) – 7th overall

The Bars are in that similar funk Mojo seems to be in. They are getting bigger contributions, but not getting them from everyone the last few days. Steve Troxel led CB again with 24.22 miles. Marj ‘The Queen of Pinson Mounds’ Mitchell had 17.11 miles. Amy Hazlewood once again put down big miles going double-dime for the day.

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.

The team is in Biscoe, Arkansas.

KG’s Top Performers of the Day

  1. Lisa Van Wolde – 25.12 miles
  2. Tiffani Glass – 20.24 miles
  3. Joan Lamayo-Buse – 14.52 miles

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.

PR’s Top Performers of the Day

  1. Rich Peers – 16.93 miles

  3. Diane Taylor- 6.49 miles

ELI’S P.R. ICE – Day 10: 92.54 Miles (10th) – 11th overall

A good day for the Ice Squad finishing 10th on the day. They were led by Francesca Muccini’s 20.12 miles. Melissa Price was perfect with her 15-spot again and John Leighton added 10.73 miles.

The team is in Mason, Tennessee.

ELI’S Top Performers of the Day

  1. Francesca Muccini – 20.12 miles
  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

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

New York City to Santa Monica Pier Distance: 2,907.00 Miles

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.

They moved up a spot in the standings since yesterday.

  3. Rene Fosdal-Griffin – 17.68 miles

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.

CB’s Top Performers of the Day

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

GRAPES OF RATH – Day 8: 122.62 Miles (6th) – 5th overall

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.

GOR’s Top Performers of the Day

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.

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.
