13.1 Marathon Goes to Strubbe, Maletz
The amazing string of high-powered half-marathons in and around Chicago continued on Sunday with the 13.1 Marathon going off in high humidity along the lakefront. Winner overall was David Strubbe, who ran a 1:13:29. Second went to David Kittaka in 1:15:27, and third went to Timothy Jung in 1:16:04. Kristine Maletz was the women's victor in 1:24:39. She was followed in second and third by Jill Czarnik in 1:28:32 and Alma Gomez-Vanallman in 1:32:09. So when is the last time any top three all had names with at least one "z?" There were 3,298 finishers, 2,003 females and 1,295 males.
