Jesse Prince is the first to break 16:00 at the St. John 5K

St. John Road RaceJust seven days after competing in the Gulf South Conference cross-country championships, Valdosta State University Blazer distance runners Jesse Prince and Nate Wondimu were tearing up the streets of Valdosta in the ninth annual St. John Road Race on Saturday morning, 27 October 2012. Prince took the title in the 5K race, setting a new course record of 15:54, while Wondimu was runner-up, 60 meters back in 16:06. Wondimu was also under the old course record of 16:09, set two years ago by Chris Rice. Rice himself finished third in 16:09 behind Prince and Wondimu. As a student assistant cross-country coach for VSU, Rice works with both Prince and Wondimu.  Another Blazer distance man D. J. Smith was fourth in 17:19, and Lowndes High cross-country runner Tyler Thurman finished fifth in 18:20. The top master in the race was Valdosta's Rick Mazurkiewicz, 13th overall in 20:28.


Nine-year-old Kelsey Morse of the Vikings Runners Club was the first female finisher in the St John Road Race, recording a 21:29 on the 3.1-mile course and coming in 19th overall. Lowndes High swimming coach Angie Bruhl was the second female, placing 21st overall in 22:00. Melissa Rowe (26th, 22:24) placed third in the women's competition. The fourth female finisher, Libby Smith, narrowly beat out Heidi Gonzalez for the top woman master spot, 22:43 to 22:46.


288 athletes finished the 2012 St. John Road Race 5K, slightly down from last year's total of 296, but still one of the largest road races in Valdosta. The race started and finished at St John The Evangelist Catholic School in Valdosta, Georgia. Proceeds of the race went to benefit the school.

First Boston win for Chris Lake; sixth for Sheryl Rosen

Chris LakeEach year on "the last Saturday in October," the village of Boston, Georgia hosts hundreds of athletes. It's no reflection on Boston's hospitality that at 8:00 AM those guests start running out of town as fast as they can go. In fact, those runners will be back in town 13.1 miles later--it's Boston's annual half-marathon race, the Boston (mini) Marathon.


2012 Boston (mini) MarathonUniversity of Florida medical student Chris Lake was the first runner to make it back to Boston this year, finishing two kilometers ahead of the next runner in 73:46. Tallahassee master runner Tony Guillen placed second, running 81:31. Sheryl Rosen won her first women's division crown at Boston in 2006 as a law student at FSU; she was a practicing lawyer this year when she won her sixth title, finishing sixth overall in 83:27. Does anyone want to bet on Rosen sitting on the bench before her last Boston win?


Sheryl RosenChris Lake is planning on running a marathon this coming spring in a different Boston, but after the mini Marathon he was admiring Georgia's Boston. "I didn't know the town was 175 years old," remarked Lake. During the last 34 of those years, Boston staged 33 annual mini-Marathons, only skipping 1987. Bruce Carpenter of Gainesville's Florida Track Club won the first Boston Mini in 1979; Lake was the first Gainesville resident to hold the race title since then. Lake plans on running another half-marathon in Pensacola on November 11, but his focus is on a November 22 race in Tallahassee. "I want to be ready for the Turkey Trot," said Lake.


2012 Boston (mini) MarathonThe Boston Mini course hasn't changed since the 1979 race; six-and-a-half miles on Old US 84 toward Dixie, then turn around and return to Boston. Chris Lake led the charge out of Boston toward Dixie in the 2012 event, followed by Tony Guillen. Guillen didn't attempt to stay with Lake, and trailed by 2:40 when the runners reached the halfway point just west of Dixie.  Another 1:40 back, Sheryl Rosen, Andrew Smyth, Geb Kiros, and Jack McDermott shared third place. On the return to Boston, Lake only got farther ahead, cruising to a 73:46 victory. McDermott took sole possession of third and began to close in on Guillen, but Guillen beat him to the finish line, 81:31 to 81:55. Smyth ran 82:31 to finish fourth. Valdosta middle-school cross-country coach Ryan Kelly overtook Rosen and Kiros to take fifth in 82:55. Rosen secured the women's title with a sixth-place 83:27, and Kiros ended up seventh in 83:33.

No treat to compete against Kaus and Hines

Peter KausWith All Hallow's Eve approaching, you might have caught a replay on television of the scene where Frankenstein's monster is lurching away from a mob of villagers carrying torches and pitchforks. Or, if you were in Southwood, you might have caught a glimpse of Peter Kaus running away from a mob of monsters, princesses, superheroes, and more conventionally dressed runners. It was the Capital Area YMCA's seventh annual Trick-or-Trot 5K, and Kaus stayed ahead of the sweating mob to win it in 18:04. Leading the pursuit, Amy Hines was the runner-up and first female, putting up an 18:30 for the 3.1-mile course. Florida State University School cross-country runner Anthony Mahoney was third in 18:54, and Eric Smith was the fastest master runner in the race, placing fourth overall in 19:52.


Amy HinesThe run started from the Southwood Town Center at 6:30 PM ET, following a one-mile fun run at 6:00. By the end of the first kilometer, Peter Kaus was ahead of the field of nearly 300 runners, with Anthony Mahoney a few seconds back and Amy Hines a step behind Mahoney. The race remained that way through three kilometers, then Kaus started to stretch out his lead, and Hines moved into second. Kaus finished the race just over 100 meters ahead of Hines in 18:04, while Hines recorded a women's course record of 18:30 for the race. Wakulla High cross-country runner Raychel Gray (14th, 22:33) and Michelle Tigue (19th, 23:37) moved up through the field to finish second and third in the women's division.
