Tallahassee's top 5K road times in 2014 (through January 25)

Stanley LintonWith the conclusion of the fifth annual Red Fox Trot 5K on 25 January 2014, it's time for an update of the Tallahassee 5K performances list.


Not that there was much to update on the men's side. Peter Kaus and Tony Guillen added top ten performances, but they were already represented in the top ten. The order of the top ten hasn't changed at all. Stanley Linton still leads the list with his 15:46 at the Bowlegs 5K.


Jillian Heddaeus and Renee CoxThree athletes appeared in the women's top ten for the first time in 2014 on the basis of their times at the Red Fox Trot. Jillian Heddaeus debuted at #3 with a 20:31, Cora Atkinson cracked the top ten at #6 with a 21:29, and Kellie Gerbers earned the #10 spot with a 22:50.


The next 5K in the Tallahassee area on a USATF certified course will be the 21st annual Run For The Cookies on 8 February 2014. This is a race that has produced fast times in recent years, and even though the course has changed the new route has already been USATF certified (FL14006EBM). After that, the Thomasville Road Baptist Church 5K is on 1 March 2014 (FL09036EBM), the Shamrock Scurry 5K is on 8 March 2014 (FL10021EBM), and Gulf Winds Track Club's 40th annual crazy-fast Palace Saloon 5K is on 12 April 2014 (FL13028EBM). The Gulf Winds Track Club's Springtime 5K on 29 March 2014 should also be USATF certified, but with all the road closures, sinkholes, and volcanoes associated with the the Cascades Park project, it's all GWTC can do to make sure the Springtime 10K course is certified. Either way, though, there are plenty of chances before Tax Day for folks to run a fast 5K on the Tallahassee streets.

Wildest hog of the herd, Morenus sets 15K record

Ancient Greek SwineHere in 21st century America, unique among the nations of the world, you can experience the frustration of trying to fit a 12mm socket over a 1/2-inch nut. The 13mm just isn't tight enough, you know? We never have warmed up to the metric system.


Except in athletics, that is. As fond as I am of miles and furlongs, road racing switched over to metric distances decades and decades ago. Years before World War II, back when the Amateur Athletic Union was running the show, all the national title races became metric. The 20-mile national championship became the 30K national championship, the 15-mile race became a 25K race, and the 10-mile title event was replaced with a 15K.


There are still non-metric races around, though, some of them quite prominent. For instance, the annual Army Ten-Miler in Washington, DC attracts tens of thousands of runners each year, none of whom seem put out because the race is 16.09 kilometers instead of some nice, round metric distance.


On 20 October 2013 Brian Morenus was at the 2013 Army Ten-Miler, where he ran 54:43 for the Fort Rucker team. On 25 January 2014 the West Point alumnus was back in Alabama at Dothan's Hog Wild 15K. You know, 15K, the slightly shorter metric sibling of the ten-mile run. Morenus didn't seem to mind the missing 1.09 kilometers at all, though. He won the race by more than two kilometers, setting a new Hog Wild record of 51:54, absolutely obliterating Sean Kent's old standard of 56:34.


For folks like me, whose high school track was 440 yards instead of 400 meters, 15K is right about 9.3 miles.


Ben McLain of Conyers, Georgia, finished runner-up in the 2014 Hog Wild 15K, running 60:46. Myles Gibson of Donalsonville, Georgia, was right behind McLain in third place at 60:52. It was the second year in a row that Gibson finished as top master in the Hog Wild. On the women's side, Margaret Winkler of Blakely, Georgia, edged out Dothan's own Carolyn Houston 74:04 to 74:24 to finish as both top woman and top master woman. Winkler and Houston were 27th and 29th overall.

Dothan's Hog Wild also includes a 5K option. Perry Waddell of Bainbridge, Georgia, is more than familiar with that metric distance, having just spent autumn running 5K races for the Bainbridge High School cross-country team. That experience didn't seem to hurt Waddell at all; he won the Hog Wild 5K in 19:38. Katherine Houle, another West Point grad stationed at Fort Rucker, was the fastest woman in the 5K, finishing fifth overall in 22:55. Eric Dueno of Havana, Florida, was the first master runner, placing seventh overall in 23:00. Bonifay, Florida, runner Val Lichner was the top woman master and second woman finisher in the shorter race, coming in 11th overall in 24:07.

LaBossiere and Rosen reign at Medical Response Unit 5K

Michael LaBossiere"Make sure you title your report, 'LaBossiere crushes Rosen,'" Mike LaBossiere told me after the race.


As immodest as his phrasing may seem, LaBossiere did indeed outrun Sheryl Rosen and everyone else in the Florida State Univerity Medical Response Unit's fifth annual 5K race on Saturday morning, 25 January 2014. The master runner from Maine ran 20:27 over the 3.1-mile course around the FSU campus. Sheryl Rosen won the women's title for the second year in a row, finishing third overall in 21:36, a step behind her younger brother Matt Rosen (2nd, 21:35).


Matt Rosen and Sheryl RosenThe race started and finished at the Integration Statue on Woodward Plaza, in the heart of the FSU campus. At 9:00 AM the runners were set loose. Nicholas Tremblay darted out into the lead, but about a kilometer into the race, on Honors Way, Tremblay was overtaken by Mike LaBossiere. Sheryl Rosen, running with her younger brother, Matt, passed Tremblay later, and so did Wakulla High cross-country coach Paul Hoover. No one was catching LaBossiere, though. The Florida A & M University philosophy professor finished the race more than 250 meters ahead of the next runner, posting a 20:27. Matt Rosen sprinted ahead of his sister to take the runner-up spot in 21:35. Sheryl Rosen was right behind him in third at 21:36, the first female finisher. Paul Hoover was fourth overall in 22:00, and early leader Nicholas Tremblay was fifth with a 27:56.


The Florida State University Medical Response Unit is on hand at all campus events to provide emergency medical services if needed. Included among those events are the many road races run around the FSU campus. The MRU even saved the life of an athlete who collapsed near the finish of the Tallahassee Marathon. The FSU MRU's support of so many running events seems to be taken for granted, though, because so few people turn out to support the MRU 5K. Here's hoping that changes in the future.
