Week 1 Results

(click map to make it bigger)

First week is complete! Good job everyone! The race began in Westerly, RI, birthplace to Holly, Julie B, and Jenni!

Here's where the teams have ended up after a week of racing:

Greased Lightning has a good lead with 750 miles. They've landed in High Point, NC! Not far behind are two teams: She-Power (with 570 miles) and Racing Rhetoricians (510 miles). She-Power is resting for the night in Lynchburg, VA--home place of racer Stacie Dusetzina--while Racing Rhetoricians have paused in Verona, VA. A few miles back is the team with the longest name ever: Team Alpha Super Awesome Cool Dynamite Wolf Squadron in Mt. Jackson, VA (470 miles). Hanging out near the Baltimore (and maybe checking out /The Wire/ filming sites) are The Atalantas (396 miles). Finally, Get 'er Done is regrouping in beautiful Wilmington (260 miles).

Greased Lightning has laid down the gauntlet for the rest of the teams! They're 180 miles ahead of the 2nd place team, but not so far ahead that someone can't catch up next week!

REVISION: Team Alpha Super.... has advanced to 2nd place with 600 miles!
Keep up all the good work!


  1. Maybe not a coincidence that the Atalantas have ended up near Baltimore for the night. I spent the first half of last week IN Baltimore, searching (and finding) a fantastic apartment to move to next month!

  2. So glad you found a place, Jenni. And so glad that you'll be SUPER close to me!

  3. Team Alpha Super Awesome Cool Dynamite Wolf Squadron is going to blast past you guys as soon as we have our 4th team member's miles added (even if they were unaware that they were in a challenge).

  4. You only sorta blasted past our team, but still are 150 miles behind Greased Lightning!!
