35-year old Is Women's Winner at Crystal Lake
The Crystal Lake Memorial Half Marathon always is run in the shadow of other races, but each year, it produces fine performances with little or no fanfare. This year, that honor goes to Kristen Jordan, 35, of Palatine, who was the women's overall winner in 1:27:09. One note to the race organizers: She is not 53 as listed in the results. Shanna Piggott, 32, of Round Lake, was second in 1:28:19, and Kimberly Leal Tortomasi, 30, of Palmyra, WI, was third in 1:29:42. On the men's side, Jon Hiatt, 32, of Chicago, won in 1:12:47, taking a tight race from Michael Bigda, 29, of Bloomington, IN, who ran a 1:12:59. Joshua Uvodich, 19, of Lakewood, was third in 1:13:20.
