Favela, Druien Conquer the Quarryman
The annual Quarryman 10-miler in Lemont provided some big hills and big performances on Saturday with Emisael Favela, 34, of Berwyn, taking overall honors in 54:26. Matt Dettloff, 22, of Palatine was second in 59:14, and Charles Wiegand, 32, of La Grange Park, a guy I know well through the Runner's Soul stores, finished third in 1:00:09. Amber Druien, 25, of Woodstock, was the runaway women's winner in 1:01:51. Coming in second was Hailey Krzyston, 19, of Burr Ridge, in 1:11:14, and nabbing third was Tiffany Cruickshank, 40, of Hinsdale, in 1:11:21. Looking through the results, there were quite a few top-tier age-group runners in the field. Congrats to all who persevered on this tough, grueling course.
