Dubow, Neale Win Debut Chicagoland

The first Chicagoland Spring Marathon and Half-Marathon came off on Sunday with 237 going the full 26.2 and 552 finishing the half. The course started in Schaumburg and included many miles in Busse Woods. From reports I've seen, it was windy, cold and rainy. Jordan Dubow, 33, won the full marathon in 2:43:30.7, with Monika Neale, 28, winning the women's title in 3:27:15. Runner-up male was Rasmus Porsgaard in 2:44:15, with third going to Todd Gill, 37, in 3:04:18. Second-place woman was Catherine Diaz, 32, in 3:27:47 (close race), and third was taken by Katy Evert, 25, in 3:35:42. In the half, victory went to Greg Castady, 37, in 1:18:34, and Susan King ,33, in 1:34:25. Hometowns weren't readily available. Sorry about that.

The female winner, Monika Neale, was quite amazing. Look for her in the 2012 Olympics. She kicks ass.

That's a good run, but she is nowhere near qualifying for the Olympic Trials Marathon, let alone the Olympics.
