Peymann and Dickinson prevail on the trail at Run For Lawson

Mike Peymann, Leslie DickinsonWelaunee Plantation will be developed. Not this year, and perhaps not next, but sometime. The plans have already been drawn up--roads, bridges, trails, and an I-10 interchange. A large piece of the land has already been conserved as the Miccosukee Greenway, and more will. In the meantime, though, athletes in Tallahassee, Florida, can tour pre-development Welaunee once a year in the Run For Lawson.


The fifth annual Run For Lawson was on Saturday morning, 26 September 2015, featuring a 10K, a 5K, and a one-mile fun run, all starting from Holy Comforter Episcopal School. Tallahassee master runner Mike Peymann won the longest race, covering the 6.2 miles in 41:03. Jimbo Halley of Tallahassee was second in 42:06, followed by Tallahassee runners Hal Fravel (3rd, 44:05) and Justin Poole (4th, 44:54).


Right on Poole's heels was the first female finisher, Leslie Dickinson. Ever since the 10K was added to the Run For Lawson in 2012, the women's records haven't lasted long. Allison Thumm established the original record of 52:00, it was broken a year later in 2013 by Renee Cox with a 45:53. Cox's record was broken in 2014 when Jillian Heddaeus ran 45:32. Dickinson kept up that string of short-lived record, knocking off Heddaeus' mark with a 44:56. A Sudbury, Massachusetts, runner, Dickinson was fifth overall. Tallahassee's Juanita Chalmers was second in the women's standings, coming in seventh overall in 47:33. Paticia Reddick of Fall River was the first woman master and third female finisher, ninth overall in 48:08. 2014 women's champ Jillian Heddaeus was fourth in the women's division, finishing tenth overall in 48:19.


98 athletes finished the Run For Lawson 10K.
