    Julie Benz as Stephanie Powell – Okay, I'm trying to figure out how fast she can move, in the Wiki it states that she can run "10 miles in just under 5 seconds", which means she's running at 1200mph (10 * 120 = 1200). In Season 1 Episode 12, Katie Andrews says she is moving to a lab in Miami but it will take Stephanie 7.5 minutes to get there. Obviously the series is set in a fictional town in California but using Long Beach as a rough location (it's not the closest but far the from farthest California coastal town) it's about 2735 miles from Miami, that's 21880mph (8 * 2735 = 21880). Now this is a massive difference. if she were actually able to travel at top speed of 1200mph as initially stated then the 2735 miles to Miami would actually take her about 2hr 16mins-ish. Anyone know exactly how fast she's supposed to be able to travel?

    Your math is wrong, but the show does have false numbers in it ( unless Stephanie Powell got a speed boost after their test ). If Steph was running 10 miles / 5 sec she would be running at the speed of (10/5*60*60) 7200mph. Running 2700 miles in 8 minutes would require a speed of (2700*60/ 20250mph. Since Stephanie has the speed of 7200mph, running 2700 miles would take her (2700/7200) 0,375 hours which is 22,5 minutes.

    I don't think it matters since she can timetravel
