Jonaitis Comes Up Big

Jeff Jonaitis, 27, of Tinley Park won the Memphis St. Jude Marathon on Saturday, posting a 2:19:47. What a great effort from a dedicated Chicago-area runner. He was first in a field of 2,213 finishers. This is proof we can produce great runners in the Chicago area. It just takes some work. Hats off to Jeff.
