Hempel and Droze put on a show at Break-A-Leg 5K

On Saturday morning, 16 February 2013, less than two weeks after running the Tallahassee Half Marathon, Tallahassee master runner Karl Hempel  won the inaugural Break-A-Leg 5K, a production of the Young Actors Theatre. Hempel ran 19:36 for the 3.1-mile race through the Midtown section of Tallahassee, finishing a little over 100 meters ahead of runner-up Jon Morgan. Morgan's time was 19:59, just ahead of the 20:06 put up by third-place runner Carter Hay. Paul Pagano took fourth in 20:27, with Cris Wilhoit fifth in 20:58 and schoolboy William Wilkerson sixth in 21:22.


Right behind Wilkerson, Tallahassee's Vicky Droze was the first female finisher, placing seventh overall in 21:22. Over half a kilometer behind Droze, Emily Parsons was the second woman across the finish line, running 24:07. Holly Newell ran 24:24 to take the third women's spot, and at 25:23 Joy Van Oss was the fourth female finisher. Michelle Harrison edged out Nancy Proctor for top master woman honors, 26:07 to 26:12.


Just over 200 athletes finished the race, a fundraiser for Tallahassee's Young Actors Theatre.
