Monster Dash Goes to Ware, Hattendorf
The half-marathons just keep on coming, even on Halloween weekend. The Team Ortho Monster Dash 13.1 was run in the city in times that seem slow to me, judging by whom some of the runners were. Good examples are the winners. Chad Ware, 26, of Deerfield, who I know wants to run a sub-2:20 marathon, won it in 1:13:43. Lindsay Hattendorf, 26, of Cedar Lake, IN (another former 4 on the 4th winner!), took the women's race in 1:22:56. On the men's side, the runner-up was Brian Butzler, 27, of Waukesha, WI, in 1:15:37, and third was earned by Paul Rollet, 26, of Chicago, in 1:20:23. Yes, the field was not deep despite 2,405 finishers. On the women's side, Anna Weber ,22, of Michigan City, IN, took second in 1:25:11, and Krista Vrombaut, 28, of Rock Island (out on the Mississippi River) placed third in 1:25:42.
