Garcia and O'Neill tear it up at Tulip Trot

Joseph Garcia doesn't necessarily like racing in Tallahassee, Florida's Cascades Park.


“There were a lot of turns. I felt like a snake,” remarked Garcia after running the 2014 Firecracker 5K through the park.


Garcia may have found the serpentine nature of the course disagreeable, but he still won that race. The Florida State University student also won the Tulip Trot 5K in Cascades Park on Saturday morning, 30 January 2016. At that race Garcia went 16:47, faster than anyone else has ever run in the park. Maybe Cascades Park is starting to grow on him.


Joseph Garcia

The Tulip Trot 5K started just after 9:00 AM. Garcia was out front right after the start with Vince Molosky a few steps behind. Grady Smith and Maclay School cross country coach Gary Droze followed a little farther back. Smith and Droze soon dropped off the pace, content to debate third place between themselves. Molosky stayed within a few seconds of Garcia for the first half of the race, but Garcia broke away during the second half. During the fourth and fifth kilometer Garcia widened the gap, getting more than 100 meters ahead of Molosky. Garcia crossed the finish line first in 16:47, with Molosky taking second in 17:14. Grady Smith dropped Gary Droze during the second half of the race to take third in 17:48. Droze finished as the top master in the Tulip Trot, fourth overall in 18:12.


Vince Molosky

Early in the race the lead in the women's competition seemed up for grabs, with several athletes taking a turn up front before falling back. By the halfway point, though, a group of three runners was setting the pace for the women--Shelby Augustyniak, Sheryl Rosen, and Paula O'Neill.


"We pretty much ran together," said O'Neill, a Tallahassee master runner. "They were chatting all the time and I was breathing hard all the time."


Paula O'Neill

O'Neill took the lead with about 400 meters to go, as the runners rounded Boca Chuba Pond for the final time. Building on that lead, she went on to take the women's title, finishing fifteenth overall in 23:14. Augustyniak and Rosen were each clocked in 23:22, taking the next two women's spots and placing sixteenth and seventeenth overall. Sophia Sultan was fourth in the women's standings, coming in twentieth overall in 23:38.


240 athletes finished the 2016 Tulip Trot 5K.

Ainsworth wins in a record run at Dothan's SACF Half Marathon

Southeast Alabama Community Foundation Half MarathonNo one needed finish line photography to pick the winner of the fifth annual Southeast Alabama Community Foundation Half Marathon on Saturday morning, 30 January 2016. Avery Ainsworth finished the 13.1-mile race through the streets of Dothan, Alabama almost a mile ahead of second place, posting a winning time of 1:15:50. The Montgomery, Alabama distance runner's time was a new course record for the SACF Half Marathon, crushing the previous record of 1:20:28 set by Sean Kent in 2013.


After Ainsworth crossed the finish line at Flowers Hospital he had more than five minutes before the next runner arrived to get a drink, change his shoes, or whatever other post-race activity he had in mind. When that next runner did arrive, it was Dothan's Austin Fox, second in 1:21:15. Myles Gibson of Donalsonville, Georgia was the top master in the half marathon, finishing third overall in 1:23:50.


Fran New won the women's title, running the half marathon in 1:40:56 and finishing thirteenth overall. Tan Winfield was the women's runner up, placing twentieth overall in 1:46:44, and Jessica Ludwig was third in the women's standings, 26th overall in 1:48:47. For the second year in a row Kathy Gannon was the top woman master in the SACF Half Marathon. This time around Gannon was the sixth female finisher, 29th overall in 1:49:57.


120 athletes finished the 2016 Southeast Alabama Community Foundation Half Marathon, with another 166 finishing the associated SACF 5K. About Time Events, LLC, of Prattville, Alabama provided chip timing and race management for the event.

Tallahassee's top 5K road times in 2016 (through January 23)

After just the first four weekends of 2016, there have already been three five-kilometer road races on USATF-certified courses in Tallahassee, Florida. The third of those was the seventh annual Trent Trot 5K on Saturday morning, 23 January 2016. In spite of windy conditions, the race had some impact on this year's performance lists.


Matt Nazareth, Jake Mazziotta

The Trent Trot 5K winner, Matt Nazareth, was already third on the men's list after running 16:56 at Bowlegs; he remains at #3. Jake Mazziotta, the runner-up at the Trent Trot, appears on the 2016 list for the first time; his 17:30 puts him at #11. Mazziotta finished 2015 ranked twentieth in Tallahassee with a 17:06. Grady Smith also made the list for the first time in 2016. Smith's 18:11 at the Trent Trot puts him fourteenth among this year's performers. Ryan Truchelut improved his best time of 2016 from 18:26 at Bowlegs to 18:16 at Trent Trot, but fell on the list from fifteenth to sixteenth. Hunter Phillips debuted in the top 25 by posting 18:41 at Trent Trot, eighteenth on the list. Logan Venclauskas ran 19:18 at Trent Trot, breaking into the rankings at #25.


Katie Sherron

Katie Sherron won the women's title at the Trent Trot 5K with a 19:36, but she had already run 19:08 earlier in the year at Bowlegs. Dr. Sherron remains second on the list. The Trent Trot was Caitlin Wilkey's first 5K race in town this year, though. Her 20:10 was good for second in the women's standings at Trent Trot, and third on the performance list. Brittney Barnes' 20:17 at Trent Trot is fourth on the women's list. Jillian Heddaeus lowered her best time of 2016 from 22:11 to 21:43, remaining fifth on the women's list. Laura McDermott broke onto the list at #7 with her Trent Trot time of 21:57. Laura Reina lowered her time to 22:29, but dipped slightly in the rankings from #8 to #9. Likewise, Emma Spencer took seven seconds off her Bowlegs time to run 22:43 at Trent Trot, but went from seventh to eleventh. Paula O'Neill lowered her time by 20 seconds, running 23:16, and slipped from thirteenth to fifteenth.


Caitlin Wilkey

With more runners logging top 25 performances in each race, it's hard to stay near the top of the rankings. Emma Travis was another runner new to the 2016 women's list after Trent Trot; her 23:35 ranks eighteenth. Deborah Congdon, Julie Clark, and Vaishali Desai improved their 2016 times to 23:44, 24:09, and 24:11, remaining in the top 25 at #19, #23, and #23.


Expect more movement in the lists soon. There are two more races on USATF-certified 5K courses coming up on 30 January 2016; the Tulip Trot 5K and the 4th annual Trailblazer 5K. Those will be followed by the 4th annual Break-A-Leg 5K on 6 February 2016, the 23rd annual Run For The Cookies 5K on 13 February 2016, the Thomasville Road Baptist Church 5K on 5 March 2016, the 28th annual Shamrock Scurry 5K on 12 March 2016, the inaugural Florida High FAN 5K on 26 March 2016, the 41st annual Springtime 5K on 2 April 2016, the 9 annual FSU Autism 5K on 9 April 2016, and the highly competitive 42nd annual Palace Saloon 5K on 16 April 2016. And that just takes you into early spring.

Victory at Noon for Gibson and Adams

Myles GibsonSaturday, 23 January 2016, was cold and windy in Dothan, Alabama. It was the kind of weather that makes you think about indoor track, but in Westgate Park it was the occasion for a cross country race to raise funds for outdoor track--Dothan High's second annual High Noon Superbowl 5K Trail Race. Myles Gibson won the event, running the 3.1-miles on the Westgate Park Trail in 18:29. Kaderricka Adams took the women's title, placing tenth overall in 22:28. 75 athletes finished the race.


Myles Gibson crossed the finish line nearly half a kilometer ahead of the next runner, but then it wasn't his first race on the Westgate Park Trail. On the same course the Donalsonville, Georgia, master runner has also won the Life Is A Beach 5K, the Brian Dowling 5K, the Love 2 Run 5K, and the Winter Olympics 5K--and that's just in the last two years. Tyveon Tharp has also raced at Westgate a few times as a junior on the Dothan High cross country team. Tharp was second in the High Noon 5K, running 20:20. Another Dothan High cross country runner, sophomore Michael Houston, nabbed third with a 20:30.


Women's champ Kaderricka Adams may not have had the cross country credentials of the top men in the High Noon 5K, but she's certainly not an inexperienced runner. A junior on the Northside Methodist Academy track team, Adams is a two-time Alabama Independent Schools Association state champion in the girls' 800 meters. Macy Benton, the eight-grader ace of the Dothan High girls' cross country team, was second in the women's standing, placing 21st overall in 25:08. Molly Matthews, frosh-year runner on the Dothan High girls cross country squad, placed third on the women's side, 23rd overall in 25:23.
