Favela Blows 'Em Away in Vegas
Thanks to a tip from fellow writer and blogger Brenda Barrera (Chicago Running Examiner), I can report (belatedly) that Cicero's Emisael Favela, 31, won the Las Vegas Half-Marathon Dec. 7 in a swift time of 1:09:48. Second place was Jake Puzey, 26, of Hermiston, Ore. in 1:12:38. No contest! Emisael topped a finishing field of 11,260. Way to go!! Now, he can run in the slop again with the rest of us winter warriors! That's Emisael in the photo, but not in Las Vegas. He is shown at last summer's Xtreme 10-miler.
